Showers...one of life's luxuries

Over the past few months, I have learned to enjoy the little things in life. Take for instance, a daily shower. Now, a year ago, a daily shower was a given. It was the first thing I did when I got up in the morning. Not so much anymore. Here's how we roll at the Lane house...

In the mornings, I sleep until the kids get up. Now, before you make some snide remark about me being lazy, that's usually between 6:30 and 7. If both my kids sleep until 8, it is like manna from heaven. And then, oddly enough, they want to eat, so I have to fix them breakfast. Therefore, the early morning shower is out.

Usually the first chance I have to get a shower is naptime. And then there is always the possibility that my precious shower time will be interrupted by Abby, who just has to tell me something, or Grayson, who decides that naptime is over. And, sometimes I'm trying to get caught up with things I didn't get done in the mornings. And, well, sometimes I just want to take a nap too. I'll admit it. Even Jesus took naps, people.

So, most of the time, my showers are at night after Burge gets home. This really is the best scenario. I know the kids are taken care of, and better yet, I know they won't interrupt me. I can take as much time as I want, or as long as the hot water will allow. I can do all of my deep, philosophical thinking. (I really don't know what it is about me and deep thinking in the bathroom...) It's refreshing, rejuvenating, uplifting!

I love showers! They are no longer a means to an end like they used to be. It's my own little mini-vacation everyday!

I realized today that I haven't posted any pictures in a while. So, here are a few random ones...


Here's Abby with her Lego "dog". Burge called it a rhino, and she was very offended.

And here are my two handsome men...

  1. AMEN!!! I can only take those nice, long, rejuvenating ones when hubby is home, too. Morning ones are always cut short by someone screaming or yelling... :D
