One Fine Day

Yesterday was an uneventful day. There were no major mishaps, no side-splitting peals of laughter, no ear-splitting major muppet meltdowns. There were no earth-shattering revelations or once in a lifetime experiences.

It was a typical day. And our family lived our lives.

In What Alice Forgot, she forgot a decade of her life. If that were to ever happen to me – these are the moments I’d miss most. Life simply happening.

8 a.m.

At 7:53 a.m. the stirring began and two little muppets began their day with an excited, “Mommeee.”

9 a.m.

A perfect 75-degree day, we decided to go for a jog. Lookitme being all get-in-shapey.

10 a.m.

Of course, we ended that jog at Stan’s Donuts. Muppets got to choose.

11 a.m.

Summer haircuts for everyone! Well, buzzcuts for the boys anyway.

12 p.m.


1 p.m.

As muppets sleep, I blog for you. And also watch the A’s sweep the Yanks.

2 p.m.

3 p.m.

Branching out from Nemo, we puttered around the living room and watched Cars.

4 p.m.

Park. Swing. Slides. ‘Nuff said.

5 p.m.

Flat tire on the jogging stroller, backpack full of groceries and squirmy muppets. That totally counts as resistance training.

6 p.m.

Really loving their PB&J. And Facetiming GammaJ and Papa.

7 p.m.


8 p.m.


9 p.m.

    Love it – made me feel like I was there!

    Yes! Cambria Svendsen, 58, mom of four and gramma of three, loved it. Hopeful news: you’ll do fine; and you’ll like this time of life, too. Thanks. BTW. You’ll do fine IF you don’t forget your role as mother and role model. Hope you married smart. If you didn’t, you still had wonderful children. You are a family. If you ever start to become selfish and stupid, don’t do it. It will change your life forever. You will barely be able to forgive yourself, and you will regret that stupid choice every week of your life. And it will put a wedge in your relationships. Be a mom. You don’t have to be a great mom. Just a mom who is doing her job.
