I didn’t leave the house yesterday until 5:45pm. I can’t remember the last time I had a day like that, and though I know staying home all day may sound lazy to some of you, I had anything but a lazy day.
There is a beauty in staying at home that I hold sacred. I did 5 loads of laundry in that time, organized a closet, made 2 costumes, tended to my children, read a little of my book and yes…even had time for a lazy little nap. To me, it was all a breath of fresh air.
My kids sat around and watched TV all day long. I know my husband kind of felt bad for them, but not me. We have such over-scheduled lives, and sometimes, I think it really is okay to be vegetables. In fact, I will go as far to say we all desperately need days like my yesterday.
So, my song of the day is by Oasis. I think their song “The Importance of Being Idle” really sums up just how I’m feeling. With that, I am off for a packed morning-to-night day today, because a lazy day like yesterday only comes around once in a blue moon.
