The weather was crispy and the sun was shinning and I was grumpy. A perfect time to call Grandma over to play with the kids while I took advantage of the last rays of sunshine before it settled under the horizon.
I was gone for a little over an hour and the kids ate cereal for supper.
I came back refreshed, the kids tuckered out from competing for Grandma's attention.
The world's problems may not be solved by my ability to head out for a run, but those in my little world certainly are.
