monday, march 12

i just checked my phone and it's 77 degress outside.  i wouldn't know what that feels like since i'm holed up inside fighting a virus.  i knew this morning i would need something to help get me through the day.  i found in it 2 chubby cheeked babies smiling back at me (after they had kept me up a good portion of the night) when they woke up, and a now 4 year old who promised to not be mad at me if i couldn't play grocery store with her today.  it's amazing how kids know what to do to make you feel like you can conquer the day even when it seems like it's going to take as much energy to do it as it would to climb mt. everest.  

and, as always the hubs pulled through keeping me nourished with his oh-so-good smoothies so i can keep feeding the babes.  thanks, j…you really are the best!  

so, if anyone else out there is struggling today. i thought i would share my energy shot for the day.  here ya go:
