4pm is like a magical number around this place. It’s the time of the day when it’s cool enough that I can open the front door and safely let Violet outside without worrying about her burning her little toes on the ground or working up a sweat. The big kids race around on their bikes and scooters and Violet happily plods along behind them laughing and talking to herself and getting dirtier as the afternoon passes by. It’s a happy time, the time I count down to each day, my down time where I get to sit outside in the fresh air for a little bit and regain some of my sanity that I may have lost earlier in the day.
So tell me..what do you count down to? What gets you through the day?
