9am: the "house" in the living room where Caroline, playing mother, reads to Johanna
10am: my go-to shower gift made while keeping the twins downstairs, away from the girls' "house" upstairs
2pm: Johanna doesn't nap, I'm exhausted from the time change, and want a little something before baking day comes...
3pm: Everyone is up again--happy, though, to wake to pumpkin cookies
5pm: I've made it to the evening. In another town, with the whole night to myself. I spend some quiet time walking through an old cemetery that I once walked through when I was much younger and single.
6pm: In the comforts of my parents' home. Happy and peaceful. More prepared to face a new week.
