There is a small gathering of preschool children who walk through our neighborhood each morning. A teacher leads them while they all hold onto a long rope and meander along the sidewalks. One of the littles just fell over and CUE DOMINO EFFECT. Every single one of them went down.
Hearing my child’s delirious wails while trying to wake him for school this morning led me to declare today as a Recovery Day. So he’s spent the day creating dinosaurs out of LEGO’s and chasing bugs outside. And I’ve floundered from couch to couch.
Our trip was fast, but good. The baby shower ended up being much easier to handle because surprise it was full of people I actually did know and not all the strangers I’d worried over. Everyone was generous and sweet and yet I still do not like being the center of attention.
I feel so worn out and I am really grateful I’ve had today to breathe easy. Tomorrow will be the start of my new week. And tonight will be all about Jimmy Johns and coziness.
