The most precious gift of all

I’ve been a little, um. Huffy. Lately. I admit it.

Perhaps not the word he would use to describe me, but whatever.

The plan was that he would take the boy to pick up a hockey net.

A plan that was a surprise to me. I thought he was now off work to be home with me and the kids, giving me a well-deserved break,  and he decides to leave me with the girl-child?

Anyway. The matter resolved itself because Sonja insisted on joining them and when Sonja has an idea in her head, well, let’s just say it wasn’t worth the ensuing battle or noise to refuse her to go. He just took her along.

And that ladies and gents has been my Christmas gift. A day or so early, and without a bow on top, but nevertheless. It was the GIFT of TIME.

Childless time.

And it lasted almost 3 hours.

I feel better.

Let the holidays begin!

Merry Christmas.
