I know it's March 5th, but it feels like Christmas morning. And not just because there are nine inches of fresh snow outside the window. It's because today, it will be just the four of us.
Right now Tom is running an 18-mile race, Corbin is still sleeping, and Anders is at his girlfriend's house. But later on something magical will happen, something that almost never occurs. The four of us will be together at home.
Although I don't know everything that will happen, there are a few things I can count on. We'll for sure have a lovely home-cooked meal. Southwestern steak tips, guacamole, salsa, and spicy rice are on the menu with a homemade apple galette for dessert. Some kind of cutthroat game, whether it will be Sushi Go, Ticket to Ride or Settlers of Catan is yet to be determined.
The last item that will for sure be on the agenda, is Anders and Corbin's endless ribbing of one another. That's my least favorite part of just the four of us being together. But it's funny how time and circumstances have changed my viewpoint on that. I'll take it over a quiet house.
Here's to you and yours having a magical day, too.
