What I Accomplished on Saturday

Spoiler alert: It was not much.

Matt got up with the kids and I slept until 11:00.

I beeswaxed my dining room table and bench. As I did this, I kept muttering, "Yes it IS my beeswax." Not that that's especially funny.

I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher twice.

I lay on the couch for two hours, from 4-6. About forty minutes was spent reading books to Hank (My Truck is Stuck and The Human Body), then I dozed while Hank took a bath with Matt in the big tub. Then Hank and Laura played upstairs. I think they were tumbling on my bed. I continued to lie on the couch downstairs and look out the big window.

I thought about people, places, and things. So, basically, nouns.

I dressed a child a lot.

I brought in the mail and threw it all away. That was the only time I left the house, if that even counts.

I messed around on the internet machine trying to deal with various administrative issues.

I warmed up leftovers for supper and we all ate together.

I took the side off of Hank's crib, turning it into a toddler bed for the second time in its life.

I read If You Give a Pig a Pancake aloud.

That is all. Nothing too taxing.

My advice to y'all is to keep it chill today.

Life is at it's best when you can avoid the major high's and low's. It's all good, Sista!

Sounds vaguely like my day except I went out once to Costco. Brought home a new HDTV for JR. He was suitably grateful and suitably sloth-like after that.

Keely said...

That sounds like my day, minus the nap. Isn't that what weekends are for?

David said...

LOL: I spent most of yesterday thinking -- and even writing -- about verbs. Put our minds together, and dagnabbit, we've got sentences and plot.

Want to come over and mind my beeswax? I've got a table begging for some Pledge.

I am numb with jealousy. 11:00? Is that a typo? My Saturday involved a lot of cleaning and cooking and soccer and cub scouts and yada, yada, yada. A NAP? I sigh sadly...

Sounds like a lovely Saturday!

Amy said...

A. Matt is a prince.

Becky said...

Yes, 11. I felt like a teenager!

And Matt is totally a prince.
