An extra adventure

Today we went and spent a hour or so at the new house.  Moving a few things in, picking out paint colours, checking it all out again.  It seems to get bigger every time we go (or it gets more empty?) and we fall in love with it a little bit more every time we're there.

There is something about the place that just puts me into a certain frame of mind.  I don't know what it is, but it seems to scream at me to relax, chill out, enjoy the day.  So we came home, and while we worked our tails off for most of the afternoon, we mostly just went with the flow of it all.  We ended up having an amazeball of a day.  Packing, cleaning, gardening, swinging, hammocking, bbq-ing, running-through-sprinklering.  I came to a realization part way through the day that the kids don't give a rats patootie that the house is in 100% chaos right now.  It's a mess, there is crap everywhere, and nobody cares.  They just want some attention, some pushes on the swings, and someone to get them a snack when they demand...I mean, ask nicely for it.  Heck, the chaos is an extra adventure.

So I'm choosing to see it as that - an extra adventure.  An extra adventure is so much more fun than plain old packing now, isn't it?   Hope you're having a safe relaxing weekend, wherever you may be!
