It is funny to occasionally stand up and look back through the stages of your life. It is particularly interesting to look back at life pre-twins. Want to go the pub for a beer and nachos? Not a problem. Go to the cabin for a weekend? Not a problem. Load the dog and a cooler in the car and away we would go. Now if we want to go the store to buy groceries, we prepare what seems like enough provisions to embark on an odyssey and we load every object that has a primary colour on it into the car before we even consider pulling out of the driveway.
Would we change anything to have that simpler life? Not a chance.
On a separate note, I did manage to get the rest of my Christmas lights up on the house. Not without some struggles, but the lights are all up now.
