My Day Off:

Relax and drink tea.png

It was about 6:49 am. When I’d finally made up my mind. I was going to make the most of my day. Sometimes it feels like I don’t take a Saturday as I should but o’ I made the most of it today.

I thought this is nearly impossible to do with children ages nine, seven and five. At first, the younger started- “mommy I’m hungry” That’s when I asked her if she wanted to fast like Jesus but when she started to cry.

I knew neither of us was Jesus. So I got up made breakfast for everybody and jumped back in bed.

Something I rarely ever do.

That’s when it hit me like a wall tumbling down. Mommies can never have a day off. So–o-o I gathered the children and demanded that I was shutting down for the day.

If you’re hungry eat crackers and drink plenty of water. Watch your cartoons and I’m laying down.

Little did I know, they’d be fighting like cats and dogs- over whose watching what? And their favorite spot on the sofa. Blah Blah Blah. Mommy, mommy this and that. I wanted to scream.

And so I did.

Enough already!
You know what – that did it!

Everybody back in bed.
Let’s start over, we need a do-over ASAP.

 

Needless to say, while the children slept, I tossed and turn. I roughly got about 2 and half hours tops between breakfast and lunch.

Hey! Life happens and there’s work to be done.
P.S. At least I had my tea this time…signing off your Kindness sister Krissy Mosley

  1. Hang in there. Yes, some days you have to take the work day off while they are in school and just stay in pajamas alllllll day. I hope the next day gives you more relax time. Glad you had your warm drink 😊

  2. Two snaps & a sip!

    I’m glad you reminded me to value my peace as a single woman. However, being a former Caseworker and church volunteer with you, who traveled along side of various needs in the absence of their parents. I do could imagine your am.

    Loved the imagery given as if I became the neighbor next door peeping in your kitchen window giggling, like Whoopi in The Color Purple!

    Love & enjoy the way you write. Your pen, words & creative song always moves my heart.

    In spirit of writing ashe…
