Special treat

When I picked the boy up from the extended day program at his school, the sun was starting to set. Clouds filled the sky and the sun reflected orange, purple, and pink across the horizon. Of course, I noticed none of this until my son exclaimed- "Look at the sky! It's beauuuuuutiful!". And it was.

As a special treat, after dinner, homework, and bath, we watched The Incredibles until the end (1 hour after bedtime) and I let them eat candy. Maybe I'm softening in my old age, but it was a special treat for the kids and me, spending quality time together during the week.

I'd love to retire and be able to do things like that regularly while they're still young. Maybe next year, maybe next year.

Keep dreaming! :)

P.S. Yaapkach! (it's the word I have to type for "word verification" to make this comment. I just thought it has a catchy ring to it...)

It's easy to retire early! First, get a lot of money....

qdmldfpg doesn't have a nice ring to it at all.

It's that first part that is tripping me up.
