The Return

My wife should be home in about an hour after spending a couple weeks with her family. And I was reminded of just how hard it is to motivate yourself when there's no one else home.

I envy that aspect of your life: A house full of young-uns.

No, I don't envy the sleep deprivation, changing the sheets after an accident, naughty behavior, or any of the other problematic things that come with children. But the same is true of the things I didn't miss while Brittany was gone: I could come home whenever I wanted from work, I could chat with Jason when he got home and not worry about neglecting my wife, I could eat all the frozen wheat-free cookie dough...

But the blessings, the many, many blessings far outweigh any negatives.

Thus, as I make the drive to the airport tonight, I'll be longing for the day when we'll be driving home from the airport with our kids in the car with us...
