Things kind of go in cycles here. We have our good moments and we have our bad moments.
Before we left for the movie the little boys were just being horrible ... tormenting everyone and being impossible to redirect. We didn't handle it very well and were not so sure we even wanted to go anymore.
But then we did, and the movies were good, and everyone is calm and happy and mellow for the moment.
So as for now things we're heading to bed feeling pretty good about life.
And that's how it goes, through the cycles, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year. We wallow through the hard times, breathe easier in the good times, but we keep pressing forward, knowing that somehow we're going to make it together, regardless of the odds.
