Made My Day

Last night we were going to have the kids in bed just after 7pm, and (since we were too tired to even think by the end of the day) watch a movie before crawling into bed early.  For a number of reasons that didn’t happen.  We did have the light off before 10pm, though.  But I still woke up tired, and with the great privilege of looking after two sick, whiny kids while feeling like I’m on the verge of a head cold myself.  At several points in the morning I was beside myself.  Too much whining.  Too much mess.  Not enough energy.  At some point I said to myself, “The only thing that could make my day is if we got our tax refund today.”  Then, for some reason an hour later (having forgotten that I’d said that), I went to check our account balances and low and behold Marc’s refund (which is always the larger one) was there.  Hooray!!!!!  That was just enough monetary goodness to give me the energy to get some things accomplished today, since it’s going to be a busy week. Very cool.
