Friday Mornings

Friday mornings are my favorite. They’re different from the laziness of Saturdays (or sometimes frenzied cleaning before a fun-filled weekend), because I do have to head into work in an hour. It’s not the pre-church roll-out-of-bed we go through on Sunday mornings. I think I love Fridays because I live so vicariously through Cody having the day off (they work four ten-hour shifts during the off-season. During harvest, it’s more like seven twelves). So he is sleeping, I’m working on my second cup of coffee and procrastinating a freelance deadline that is today, and pondering what’s been happening lately.

Vicariousness has been the theme of the last couple months, as my wonderful talented brilliant sisters have had the most epic spring ever (until we all have kids at the same time, maybe??) – prom, a wedding {same weekend. Different sisters.} three graduations {two the same day}, a million tests and state track for the high schooler – taking home the gold in the 4×400 – and a few birthdays in the mix as well. I loved being in Iowa to get a peek into the midwest lives of the Muilenburg clan, then seeing the rest through videos, Tweets, texts and Facebook posts.

It felt great to be so boring while celebrating with my sisters. Cody and I have a strangely normal life, which just also happens to be super awesome and surreal. Praying daily for the siblings about to embark on cross-country travels {flashback to three years ago, when that was me and Code}, moving and starting new jobs and schools. A year from now, we’ll have one last high school graduation. Woah.
