The Tao of Uno

It has been a shitty 2 weeks in the Stieb household (hospitals, doctor's office, vet's and unexpected days off of work because of all of the above) and unfortunately it is going to get worse.

But for a couple of moments, while everybody was getting ready for bed, there was a moment of calm as a game of Angelina Ballerina Uno broke out. And for a few precious moments, the kids weren't fighting, the phone wasn't ringing and the only stress was trying to remember to say uno when I was down to one card.
