Sometimes, when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, the simplest things can divert your attention.  Even if it's only for a moment. 

The sounds of "Colonel Mustard in the library with a candlestick" or "You sunk my battleship" make you smile and think of simpler, easier times. 

Game Day at school is a welcome diversion.  I like hearing my kiddos say these phrases as it transports me to my childhood.  My sister and I wore those games out when we were little. 

Then a kiddo comes to me with a Twilight trivia question.  She wonders if I know the answer, since we've shared our love for the series with each other.  I can't believe I'm able to answer correctly, and she loves that I actually know the answer.

Finally, a few of my girls beckon me over to show me something......

Between that and hearing "It's always Mr. Green!" I think it'll be okay. 


  1. My favorite entry...

    I never really trusted Mrs. Peacock.

  2. The candle stick weapon always seemed so wrong to me. Who would do such a thing. Game night is needed asap.
    loves ya!
