Today was a really good day, and I want to remember it. Syd has a sleepover with her bestie last night after they went to a birthday party. They’ve been friends since preschool but don’t see each other much. I don’t know when the last time I saw her so silly and happy. We made breakfast burritos and the kids were in the pool by 9:00. I had planned on going to a craft fair, and at the last minute Eli asked if he could go. He was LOVELY company and we had a great time. Then a fun, low key Girl Scouts And a walk with the dogs where they both behaved like decent, normal dogs (including ZERO) reaction to the off-leash and yippy dogs in the neighborhood. Including the ones belonging to the family who I think reported us to the HOA because our dog made them “fear for their safety.” (Which I’ll write about later but made me completely freak out, culminating in crying in the neighbor’s driveway.) C made the kids dinner and we put them to bed early so we could get to our sushi and Game of Thrones. Now I have a new book to start and an I’ve cream date with a friend tomorrow !
