Reverb - Day 14


What's the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?

I think what I have come to appreciate more and more as the year has gone on is my time with Ethan. Until August, for the past 2 years, I was working 3 days (or less) per week while finishing graduate school, so even though I had studying, tests and papers to do, I still had Thursdays and Fridays at home with Ethan and I loved spending that time with him, just he and I. I miss it.

And so now that I'm working 5 days per week, unwillingly of course, I cherish and appreciate every single minute I have with Ethan, particularly when it's just he and I...those times are even more precious to me. 

What a perfect prompt for today as I am home with E on our 2nd consecutive snow day and I've loved every minute of it, even though it hasn't been just "he and I" since O is working nights since last week. It's still been good times. We've watched Toy Story 3 at least 7 times in the past two days. Thankfully I am NOT sick of the movie yet...it's too good to ever be sick of.

Looks like tomorrow will be back to "normal", as in back to school, but Thursday we just might be back at home as some nasty snow, rain, sleet combo is scheduled to come in late Wednesday night. I love living in a place that is not prepared or equipped for even just a little bit of wintry weather...it's a great change from growing up in Michigan and STILL having to be at work after 4-5 inches of snow fell overnight.

Nice post. I do miss snow days since I moved south.
