An Arrangement

Recently, Eric and I have made a little arrangement that is working out like a dream for both of us...

We split our Saturdays.  He gets to go fishing for hours on end in the afternoon and I get to sleep in, read, watch t.v., and run errands sans the three amigos in the morning.

We've been doing it for a few weeks now, and I have to tell you it is making me a whole new person.  Getting to do whatever I want to all of Saturday morning is great.  Not having the kids in my face first thing when I wake up is a day changer.  Eric gets to fish all afternoon and he's actually starting to miss us =)  Trading half days makes it so neither one of us feels any guilt.

I just have to share, this morning Eric coincidentally took the kids on the EXACT path I was taking on my morning off (craft store, dollar store, Sweet Tooth Fairy).  Thankfully, I was far enough behind them that I didn't run into them, but boy, would that have been funny.

These pictures are from Friday night, but they capture another glimpse of our day-to-day.  Eric napping while the kids watch tv.  Not an uncommon occurrence at all.

Life is simple around here and that's just how I like it.
