Right now, I am taking a Mommy Break. Nothing exciting has happened today. It's been day filled with errands and minutia.
I have spent the last two and half hours in the kitchen. My feet are sore. I figured I'd go on the offensive right when we walked in the door from a day of errands. I set out some paints and got the kids busy while I made vanilla/cherry/banana smoothies. Since it was storming outside this went quite nicely. I'm even used to the inevitable spilling of the watercolors water and explosion of finger paints. I just threw the $1 tablecloth away. It was worth not having to clean it. I figured that I was worth at least $1.
Now I sit typing while the dog is in hiding from the last hour of torture/pretend playing with the kids. The kids are playing "ballet" complete with Snow White outfits and a chalkboard. It obviously doesn't need to make sense in order to be fun.
After I type this out, I plan to make something for dinner out of leftover noodles. Yummy. I sit thinking about the things I didn't do that I wanted to do today and the laundry both clean/wrinkled and wet/smelly/dirty.
I just read the about the memorial for Michael Jackson. It sounds like it was a great tribute for him, full of famous people, kind words and such.
If I were to die today, what kind of memorial would I have? I can pretty much guarantee there won't be anyone famous there. It would be filled with family and friends. That's good enough for me.
OK. Mommy Break is officially over. I really need to make dinner now and get the kids up to bath.
If any of you want to share your minutia of the day, feel free! That's why I like Facebook so much. It's so mundane yet interesting at the same time.
