The other day, I woke up from a lovely series of dreams. They were simple dreams in which I was taking long walks with my children, or doing yoga, or swimming. When I woke up, I was energized and happy. I couldn't wait to get started. I had such fun in the pool later -- doing jumping jacks, running, and other moves from water aerobics. It was really refreshing and joyful and the children thought it was really funny to see such a goofy mommy. The next day I mowed our crazy lawn -- not a flat surface in sight. It's all dips and hills and weird angles -- I suppose that, when our house was built, the county didn't have the same requirements for making lots level as they do today -- no yard could have settled in this particularly weird way. Even though I am now covered in mosquito bites, thanks to our friend, the Asian Tiger Mosquito, I felt strong, empowered, and happy to have a mowed lawn.
