What I did last night instead of blogging

I miss colouring; don't you?
I've been chewing on a lot of things this week; but instead of sitting down and writing, I sat down with some of the people that matter the most to me.

I sat down and coloured a picture with my kids; something I haven't done for a long time.  My daughter commented about how happy she was that we were all at the table together enjoying the same activity.

I sat down with my mother and we talked a bit about how my folks are doing and what's coming down the pipe in the near future.

I sat with my wife and talked about our immediate concerns: my experience chaperoning our son's field-trip; some of the challenges she is facing in her current role as an acting manager within the provincial civil service; and the ongoings of her class that night (she is currently completing her Master's of Education).  Then we just poked around on reddit for a bit, laughed hard, joked around some more as I tucked her in, and laughed even harder.

I sat down with one of my oldest friends to shoot the shit, take a load off, and play some video games.

And finally, I sat down with myself and wrote this simple note that I wanted to share with you:  
Remember to nurture your relationships, its often far too easy to forget how important to you they really are.
