Essence of Now: Double Trouble

I’ve had the double the kids in my house this past week. All week.

I’ve been trying to keep them entertained by going to places like the bounce house, the library, the Discovery Museum and the Arboretum.

At home they have been helping me in the kitchen with baking cookies, making dinner and blending various green smoothies including a strawberry banana lettuce smoothie.

I’ve also made sure we had time to put our feet up and relax. Because that’s what summer is all about, right?

It’s been double the trouble. But it’s also been double the fun.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to take a much needed nap.

    Who couldn’t use a nap? I just wish my kids wanted one too.

    Sounds like an exhausting week. You definitely earned those cookies. And a martini. ;)

    Hey, Jessica! I know it’s been a while since I’ve said hello, but I’ve been seeing you all over the place – Pinterest and such! It’s Kristy from Pampers and Pinot. I have a new blog now and am back in the blogging business! Good to “see” ya! BTW, I hear you with the extra kids around. Now that my boy is older, the neighborhood kids love being here to play. It can be great, or crazy. Sigh.
