While writing the title just now, it took me a few moments to figure out if it was ‘a break in the weather’ or ‘a brake in the weather’. When my spelling skills deteriorate, I know I’m seriously tired.
Today we welcomed the 50+ degree weather by going to the Denver Zoo. It’s Sassy’s favorite place. I had the kids sit down and tell me all the places they want to go to one last time before we leave, and this was hers. This past week I’ve felt a little mama guilt because as I clean and organize all Sassy wants to do is have ‘together time’ as we call it. “Mama! Let’s have a together time so we can make muffins!” “Mama! Let’s have together time so we can do math!” “Mama, lets have together time so we can play games!” Every time I put her off until after I finish something, or tell her I can’t, I feel badly that precious moments are slipping away. Today was our day to be together, and we did a bang up job of it!
All told, we spent 6 hours there. We walked when we wanted to, rested on the benches when we wanted too, ate what and when we wanted too…I let them lead the way with their map navigation skills, and I mostly watched them laughing and having a good time. That always does a mama good!
The highlight, for me, was when Sassy looked up and said, “This is the best day of my life!”

So, internets, I have something to share. Facebook already knows it, but…I chopped my hair off yesterday. They say not to make drastic hair decisions when you're in the middle of a big change, because it may be a reaction to stress rather than what you really want. I must say, this WAS a reaction to stress…as in, it was stressing me out having to deal with doing my hair every day. Because of my unruly curls, I really have to spend quite a bit of time making my hair presentable, and I am tired of it. Plus, it's not like I'm going to have the space in the RV to bring along a big repetoire of hair supply stuff. Anyway, I really really love it! However, I'm not sure how much husbands love it when their wives turn in to what looks like a scrawny boy getting ready to rumble!
Tomorrow, Creative Math Club and then back into the trenches, so to speak. I have a few more closet spaces I have to tame into submission.
