Yesterday I started the day off with a to-do list and very little patience - a potion for disaster. And, if you must know, that's pretty much how it played out.
This morning we had nothing much to do besides prepare ourselves for an awesome playdate. We pulled out the baby pool and slip-n-slide. Traded our pajamas for swimsuits and sliced cut-up watermelon into a bowl - preferably to be eaten with our fingers while juice dripped down our chins. And that is basically how the morning, and afternoon, and evening went. No agenda. Nothing to get done (we told ourselves - we were liars). I started and finished a novel in four hours. The boys ate pizza in front of a movie.
Today I am thankful for Fridays and do-overs.
