We ate good food. Lots of good food. Like the scallops at jane's on the common or the seafood chowder at The Red Shoe Pub.

Today I wish I could find some of the peaceful quiet I experienced on the trip. Oh, my. Sick kids. Fussy kids. A bored kid. Baby needs. So easy to get frustrated again. I can't seem to achieve much. Definately not any coherant thoughts here. I have sat down here at least 30 times, only to be called away within minutes. Sometimes only seconds. Its a little harder to chose joy now. Especially with the crazy sleep disruption and deprivation. I thought I would quickly make a copy of the pictures to send to Andrea and blog. Then, move onto the other 30 things I would like to have done. One beginning goal for the day and still not accomplished as we near the end of the afternoon.
But really, today I have 3 beautiful children, a comfortable house to raise them in (minus the dirt and mess, oh, I shouldn't even mention it though, because that's ruining the point), and a husband who gets off work at a decent time, and who comes home and helps with the craziness. I should see joy and thankfulness for so many things. Everything. Simple things. A washer and dryer to deal with mountains of laundry with ease. The best cheese sandwiches ever (mmm, fenugreek gouda from Nova Scotia) and yummy tomato and avocado salad. The choice I made that day on Cape d'Or I can make right now, to look past what I wish were different and choose to see the good. Oh, I am trying.
And, it always helps to remember the little bits of goodness that I find everywhere (if I'm looking!)
