It's 10:45pm.  I just exercised for half as long as I intended and I still need to shower.  I have half of our bags packed for the work day tomorrow, but still half to go. Our house is hardly clean but is halfway tidy (ahem....halfway tidy is likely an exaggeration). That craft that I had started to make for Hanukkah last year that I was planning on finishing tonight, it's only half way completed. Only half of my to do list for today was checked off. I'm trying to figure out how I can get animals all fed and kids dressed and fed to get out the door at 7am tomorrow, which is daunting just to think about, as that's not our typical routine. I sit down to blog and have no energy to do that which I was planning.  I scan through pictures to see if there's anything else that inspires me.

I find these.  Just an ordinary day in our house and the dance party that erupts when hearing Jingle bell rock.  Not the best pictures clarity wise, but they do offer a new perspective for me.

Just finding these pictures reminds me that although there's trivial things I may not be completing in a timely manner, it's because I'm giving the majority of my effort right here. Suddenly the trivial things matter much less and I smile thinking about the awesome little people we have the pleasure of raising.
