Blue skies above

Today is supposed to wrap up my Florida vacation but a storm in New York may keep me here for a couple more days.

I whipped into a frenzy cleaning the kitchen and then announced there would be no more TV today. From there Liam inundated me with “what can I do’s”. He decided to use his wheelies around the house (which I’ve asked him not to do sooooo many times) and I’m running around with bare feet thinking he’s going to run over my toes.
