Yesterday started off busy. We were supposed to be up with the sun, dressed and ready, for my son's first soccer game. The very idea of us being up early on a Saturday must have caused a disturbance in the Force, because when I got up, the ground was wet. It had 'misted', spit, tinkled, sprinkled--whatever you want to call it. It did this enough to cause the soccer games to be cancelled, since the commissioners did not want small children playing in the mud. No, the mud on the field was to be reserved for the older kids, their white uniforms notwithstanding. Larry took Zane to his grandma's house for a visit, and I was alone.
The sudden reprieve ended up being a blessing, because I got to be lazy today. I'll say that again, just to make sure that you heard me. I got to be lazy today. How often does that happen to any mom? I decided to take advantage and live in the moment. I took at least two naps. I finished two books. I read the paper. I sipped at my coffee while it was still hot. I started a new book. I took a long shower and actually shaved my legs. Later, we all watched Wreck-it Ralph.
It was a pleasant day with no hurries or worries. How often does that happen? Usually, when I have a moment to be lazy, my brain suddenly remembers this very long list of "honey-dos" that would keep even the most efficient person busy until Christmas. Today, the list maker part of my brain shut down.
Tomorrow we will all be on the crazy train again, running to and fro and back to trying to keep up with the movement of life, this appointment, that appointment, etc. And that's okay--I am not knocking a single moment of that slice of chaos. I wouldn't trade it, ever. However, that doesn't mean that I won't enjoy the occasional lazy day.
