Today I am exhausted, but it was worth it

Yesterday was the most normal day I have had. I tear up just thinking about it. I had a great morning, afternoon, and evening. Sarah L. played with Mason all morning while I took care of Nolan. When the boys were down for nap, I explained all the ins and outs of "All My Children" to Sarah who was laughing and shaking her head. Then, I went down for nap too. I woke up raring to go. I drove a car in the first time in weeks. How freeing! I went to scrapbooking. On the way, the sun was just setting and the light was so beautiful. I could see the water and just smell the start of summer. I scrapbook with my cousin and her friends, now my friends too, from her church. It was great to sit next to my cousin and give her the normal crap that I give her. She didn't miss a beat and cut me no slack which was perfect. We are so related it is scary. Afterward, I went to the grocery store to pick up an avocado for Mason, and then went by the airport to pick up Jane (my sister in law). I felt normal waiting at baggage claim. I watched all the people and thought about where they were going, who they were meeting, and what adventures they had had. Then, I saw Jane and exhaled. She is here.
