Today to rest while others rush


I didn’t feel like doing the dishes

So they still sit in the sink

I didn’t feel like folding the clothes

So they are waiting on the line

I didn’t feel like cooking dinner

Take a way will do

I didn’t feel like checking books

My in tray over flows


My kids finished school early

And spent the day with Dad

I sat and cuddled Miss 3

And read her loads of books

I found an online conference

And listen while they streamed live

I wrote, rewrote and tweaked

Submitted and entered comps

I enjoyed a glass of red

While we all enjoyed a pizza

  7. What a blissful day! I hope you have many more of those.

  8. Perspective. Is. Everything.

    Good work, you. Bet nobody died because the dishes weren't done!

  9. I'm sending this post to my mom, who will nominate you for sainthood!
