Oh - that must've been so fun! I really enjoy stories of your L's imagination. He is such a smart guy.
I'm almost always up for a good mess in the name of fun. :0)
The night you just described, with the laundry and vacuum and etc, I need to do more of that and less of watching tv shows on the DVR. And maybe you need a little more of the tv (or books, internet, whatever) and we could balance each other out!

I went to an ASD presentation last night where we watched part of a Jed Baker video; he describes something a lot like this: you have to be able to find those moments of joy and wonderment. They may occur in little pockets here and there, but we need them to balance out the other stuff.

The weekend is here, so we can all take a deep breath!

How interesting that the ASD presenter mentioned the same sort of thing--looking for the small, wonderful moments. It's so easy to get bogged down by the dark and frustrating ones, and we have learned with time to let go of those when we can, and focus on the positive.

He pushed you right to the edge and in the end he reached out and pulled you back from it, in his own way, of course. That's lovely, really.

Hope the weekend is full of relaxation and happiness!

That's exactly how I saw it, too--it was perfect.
