It's 12:26AM and I should be in bed asleep. I've noticed that when Kris isn't here, I tend to stay up later. I think it's my way of capturing some 'me time' after the kids finally go to sleep. Tonight, mom took us out to dinner after Ross's T-ball game, so we didn't get home until toward 8:00. I let Hope play in the tub a long time while the boys played Minecraft on my ipad, and I finally folded two baskets of laundry that had been sitting in the hallway for a full week. After everyone was squeaky clean, I let the kids start a movie so I could go downstairs and use the elliptical trainer for a bit. It felt so good to MOVE. I've been experiencing a lot of lower back pain this summer, and I think it's because I'm sitting so much--at baseball games, tball games, swimming lessons, and in the car. However, this late evening workout meant that I didn't tuck everyone in until 10:30! I've showered, read, snacked, checked email, and here I am, still awake. At least we don't have to get up too early tomorrow. 'night, all.
