I AM a lucky lady. And in fact I just had that exact thought as I walked thru the kitchen into th[e den]. The last hour has been less than stellar -- Gregg had a beer too many watching the Super Thing and was goofy at dinner, such that I sent him to bed. And then I turned to see a messy kitchen, two kids in need of a bath, a living room strewn with stuff they played with while we watched the game -- all with me feeling flu-ish and it being an hour until Alex's bedtime. I was just like F!!!!!!! I ran the bath, cleaned the kitchen, straightened the stuff, dried them off, put the PJ's on, shined the damn sink, and came in to take them out to see the Smile Moon. But Gregorie had fallen asleep. Alex and I went out and the moon had set. We vowed to get out to see the bigger smile tomorrow. We came in and Cat Steven's Moonshadow was on my playlist. I looked at my sparkling kitchen and my beautiful daughter and listened to "If I ever lose my eyes, I won't have to cry no more..."
Yeah, it's all damn good. I'm very, very lucky!
