The simpler life is not about perfectionism and having everything in perfect balance.

Yesterday we had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with apples for dinner. After work, I needed to take my son to the store for new sunglasses, shoelaces, and a patch for his backpack since things got broken and frayed in his moped accident. By the time I got home I had 20 minutes to feed everyone and get to my daughter’s concert. The meal I had planned went out the window, so peanut butter and jelly it was.

The concert was fantastic, featuring the humorous and skilled Dallas Brass . My daughter’s band played Star Wars with Dallas Brass and the high school did a moving patriotic medley. We had a most enjoyable evening.

And tomorrow we can have a real dinner.
