This past weekend I made an executive decision.
I decided to take the weekend off.
Partly out of necessity, but mostly because I wanted to.
So I borrowed a baby...
And I did a little of this.
And a little of this.
And some of this.
And I didn't even look at my dirty kitchen.
Or the piles of laundry.
Or the un-vacuumed carpets.
And you know what?
One of the kids eventually cleaned the kitchen.
My husband did a whole lot of laundry.
Another kid vacuumed the family room.
I checked out and life went on.
The world continued to turn on it's axis.
The sun rose and set without my giving it a second thought.
The internets kept on internetting.
I could complain and say that I'm not needed.
That everyone's just fine without me.
Grateful for kids who know how to clean.
Grateful for a husband who knows how (and more importantly is willing) to do laundry.
Grateful for a nice home where I am warm and safe and cared for.
Grateful for sisters who bring dinner and lend babies.
Grateful for good books and 3G networks.
Some might say I'm a lucky girl.
I'm not lucky.
Speaking of blessed...that sweet baby is Haizyn May and she was blessed on Sunday. Isn't she cute?
