It's been one of those weeks. Bickering. Short tempers. Crabbiness. And the kids haven't been very good either. ;) It was no surprise when I walked out into the evening sun the other night and asked if anyone wanted to take pictures with mom, that the response was a quick, 'No, we're playing a game.' In their defense, they were, in fact, in the middle of make-believe. To be honest, I was glad to just go mess around myself. I needed a little space. Eventually, I cracked myself up with the nonsense necessary to use a self timer, which is even more weird with just me in the shot. But I was determined to put my face in a picture this week. And then I got a good chuckle again later when I realized I was wearing a shirt with a large deer silhouette on it. A pretty, dreamy dress would have been better...on a beach...on an island... But, of course, this is reality this week. The good, the bad, and the deer. Or is that an elk?
Later, when stickiness had taken over and the 4th of July was not going as planned...I escaped...to chase butterflies. All by myself. Yes, I did. Because sometimes it's about what I want. Does that sound awful? Not often. But sometimes.
I hope you had a great fourth of July. I hope you got to do something you wanted to do.
