back in the groove

Getting back in the groove of things hasn't exactly been easy. Times are rocky here at work, the snow has really caught this city off guard, I'm busy beyond belief trying to make sure everything that needs to get done gets done and fielding phone calls and playing catch-up. I can only hope that starting Monday things at the office will be a little more manageable and easy to deal with. Kids have been in and out today, and I take it upon myself to find things for them to do. This is mostly ok, but then they start invading my office and asking me why I have two computers (really, I can't answer that question other than my mac plays music for me) and wanting to play on the computers and asking me what everything in the world is on my desk and jamming my stapler and drawing me pictures.

I was a little at my wits end by the end of the afternoon with a massive headache, but as I was on my way back from taking someone to an appointment with her two kids, I heard the 5 yr. old boy from the back say to his 6 yr. old sister... "Hey! Tickle me again" and then she would. He would giggle and giggle and giggle. I must say that his giggle is by far the best thing I've heard all day.

When I was a kid I hated being tickled. The rough part of it is how ticklish I was. If you just came near me with hands in the tickle mode, I would bust up laughing. So it was really funny to hear the kid in the backseat tell his older sister to tickle him. He just wanted to laugh. And be joyful. The kids all seem to be a little bit antsy not being back in school, but for a brief moment, I experienced something that just brought a smile to my face. A little joy goes a long way on a rough day.
