|Me. On Wednesday night. Helping with the youth group.|
I love Thursdays. By this time every week my housework has been done. The laundry is usually washed, dried, folded & put away. I'm also off from my newspaper job.
And the day is all mine.
To do with as I wish.
After waking & rubbing my sleepy eyes this morning, I helped get the girls ready for school. And then, while daddy drove them to school, I Facebooked, Pinterested, emailed, & ate a bowl of yogurt with Kashi Crunch. The teapot is now on the stove & 'bout to whistle. And a new spicy, warm candle is flickering atop the piano. I seriously have a checklist made for the day that includes things like "knit" & "call mom". I know that today for lunch I will be eating leftovers from last night's meal: a Mesquite BBQ pork tenderloin, a yummy fresh green salad & THIS, which makes me happy.
The girls will get off school today & have the day off tomorrow. So tonight will be full of family time. We'll watch Space Chimps 2 & maybe make forts with sheets & chairs so that I can surprise them with some new Sunny Patch Bibi Bee & Mollie flashlights I picked up (BOGO free!) at the Dollar Store in town. I'm the mom that can't help spoiling her girls with little treats every time I go out.
Sure, there are other things I could be doing today. But nothing I should be doing.
And that, is why today is awesome.
