It Gets Better
And just like that, life starts to get noticeably easier. Suddenly there is more than enough parking along the side streets near Maggie's school. Suddenly the sun is up and light streams through the bathroom window when I wake up before everyone else to get in the shower. Suddenly I realize that it's been about two weeks since I've worn my enormous arctic explorer cocoon/down coat. Suddenly Maggie notices that our daffodils are starting to come up in the back yard slush pile.
I know we're still going to have to do battle with a lion or two before we finally get to lie down with lambs, but today I'm suddenly feeling like life is a little less difficult than it was yesterday.
(Apologies for the terrible pictures. Come for the words, leave for the photography!)
