So Mother’s Day was just terrific…
It started around 7am when two of my offspring decided to wake up and then pace around my bed until they found their hidden laptops- all the while whispering. But that didn’t really wake me- because not having a pillow all night and having neck pain did.
When I finally got out of bed, I realized I had but an hour to get the house and table ready for company. I was really excited because there were still some dishes from the evening before that I could wash and load- sort of like a pre-game scrimmage.
After I straightened up whilst preparing the meal, it was time to re-sweep the floor. I mean, although I did get to wash it the day before, someone had dropped some crumbs on the floor- maybe it was hubby who was cutting the everything bagels on the edge of the counter?
In between preparing for the meal and cleaning the kitchen I popped in a few loads of laundry- I mean, what is Mother’s Day without real chores?
Fast forward to post brunch dishes and laundry, when I got to sit and relax for a little bit- til the next meal. Thankfully with the memorization of all three of my credit card numbers, I was able to order dinner to be delivered.
Now that it is nearly bed time, I am finishing folding the laundry and vacuuming my carpet- silly dog decided to rip open my youngest’s hacky sack that he accidentally left on the rug since Wednesday- and I can now reminisce about my relaxing day.
If Fitbit had some sort of device for measuring household chores I think I’d be in the Machu Picchu range. In any event, it was a wonderful day spent with family… who by the way, were kind enough to let the dogs outside while I was lounging on the toilet thanks to the linen closet stocked with toilet paper, and let them back in- just in time to for them to climb onto my newly made bed (with white sheets) with their muddy paws- as I was.
