I’ve made the opportunity to take a few minutes out of my schedule as of late to have a little fun. I spent last Friday at the zoo with my daughter and the grandkids. I wanted to see the awesome Lego sculptures before they move on.
As I normally do on Friday mornings, I arose early to make deliveries. Once the rancher loaded the car, off I went. One, two, three, four stops, and I was ready to head toward the zoo. I was running a little late (as usual), but my daughter was running even later. I bought a $5 drink (ack!) and sat out front to wait for her. She arrived before long. Almost as soon as we entered the zoo, we happened upon our first Lego creature.
We had a wonderful time. The weather was cooler but still beautiful. The kids were very well-behaved. We spent the whole day at the zoo. I made it home in time for chores. Then, I spent the evening–late into the evening–making milk products for Saturday’s customers. Once or twice, I cursed myself for being stupid enough to waste a day having fun! Now that I am past my sleep deprived Saturday, however, I am glad I took the time to spend the day with my babies and enjoy a little bit of life.
