Trying to catch up on the blogs I have missed reading, and forming thoughts for future blog posts, I’m just chillin’. Which means, I haven’t showered, brushed my teeth, or moved from pjs to my regular something-more-comfortable attire.
As a new mom, these things were luxuries. Unless a mom wakes up in the middle of the night before their kids wake up somewhere after 5 am, personal needs are taken care of when we get a chance. For me, that was usually nap time–the afternoon nap.
Now, the luxury is not having to nag someone to get up on time, the pleasure of silence in the house, and choosing when to get dressed.
….and then I realized what day it was. This is my favorite holiday. Always has been.
Not that I believe we need a day specifically set aside to show those we love that we do, in fact, love them, I just love the day.
I seriously think that I have created some sort of break down of my abilities. I either have some physical or mental malady. Mostly, for the last several months, even though my mind is in a better place, I feel as if my body is trying to beat my mental status down.
Or……maybe it’s all an illusion to get out of picking up after myself–or doing laundry–or mopping the floor–or cleaning the bathrooms–or taking a shower.
Ha! Even though I seem to have a small head cold with an accompanying earache, I do feel a bit better today after a good night’s sleep. I know I can hoist myself up and do what I need to do.
Even though my husband and I don’t need a special day, I could get dressed in regular street clothes, and put some make up on.
Maybe I’ll do the dishes too! 🙂
