No reason in particular... things have just gone well.
Starting with the fact that I actually *felt* like getting up and out of bed this morning when the alarm rang at 7... I haven't *felt* like getting up in the mornings in who-knows-HOW-long (probably because I haven't been getting enough sleep... story of my life!)!!! So, that was a good start to the day.
Then, everything seemed to go not only in a timely fashion, but AHEAD of schedule! That was a first! So, I actually finished up lunch with the kids by 12:30 pm and they were down for naps before 1... that was at least 30 minutes ahead of the usual time. So then I started a letter, wrote a few e-mails, went to the post office... all by 2 pm, which is when my 'free time' is usually just beginning. So, instead of using free time until 4 pm, like I usually do, I went downstairs to iron about 3:20. The plus to that was that I actually got all the ironing caught up (something that rarely happens!) and things went very tranquilly, with goûter, etc. It helped that the younger boys had piano and flute lessons today, because with fewer people (i.e. children) under foot, more is able to be accomplished. I even got an extra 45 minutes of 'free time' between 5:15 and 6, because of being ahead of schedule. Sure, there were things that could've been done, but Mme S. offered me the extra time and I couldn't refuse. ;)
Now, though, I'm just as tired as on any other night. Not much energy left!
But at least the day STARTED OUT with more energy than usual. That's something in itself.
