Living in the During
It started in the Wendy's drive thru.
Sam turned to me and said, "You know what this drive thru reminds me of, Mom?"
"No, sweetie, what?"
"Remember when we were moving here and before the furniture came and we were working on the house? (understatement....) We used to come through this drive thru almost every day."
He's right. We were officially living in the Residence Inn as we renovated the house. And because Wendys offered something besides burgers and fries, we went there a lot. Just about every day. He's right about that.
"Yeah, we did a lot of work to our house, didn't we?"
"I've been meaning to make a photo book of our renovations...you know, kind of 'before, during, and after'....but we keep doing more things so I never feel like its time for the 'after' pictures, you know?"
"Yeah...you're right. We're still livin' in the during."
Boy does that sum up how I feel about the raising kids thing.
We're still livin' in the During.
