The kids have no school today, but of course they still woke up at 6:30am. We’ve been sitting in front of the TV most of the morning. We did build a pod racer out of a cardboard box, manage to get chicken soup in the crock-pot and schedule for my internet and cable to be turned on at our house in Colorado. I’ve been playing scrabble on my phone with my sister and brother-in-law and trying to choose a hotel to stay in on our trip to Colorado.
I am completely positive if my mother came home right now she would be utterly appalled at the sight. Benji has had half a bag of edamame, two popsicles and two drinkable yogurts for lunch. Colby has had yogurt and his boogers. I’m on my second pot of coffee and I am seriously considering chocolate ice cream with the chocolate shell. I’m only a tad bit disappointed with myself.
I NEED to be packing for our trip because we are leaving next Wednesday morning! I have zero motivation. I suppose my children have the rest of their days carefully choreographed so today will be a free day. Do what you want, when you want, how you want and that includes me as long as everyone is fed.
I have been trying to come up with a list of justifications for my actions today. Do any other mothers do this? Do they seriously try to take as much of the day off as possible? I say today was a win, but I feel guilty! Oy Vey…
