It was my intention to clean the house. Not just clean the house but make it Christmas ready. You know what I mean!!! In any case, I made a fried egg, tater tots and sausages brunch; and we three are sitting watching Enchanted. I asked my son to get the decorations out. You know what he said? He said, "Tomorrow, on December 1st." So, we are hanging out and just laughing at one of our collectively favorite movie.
I thought I would feel guilty. I should be cleaning. I should be productive. This is horrible. I'm a lousy mother. I don't feel like a lousy mom. I feel great. I'm happy and refreshed. We are laughing and enjoying a moment. I'm looking around at the mess. Yes, I should be dusting and cleaning the floors. Instead we are just... enjoying the day. Later I will meet up with my best friend and I will start cleaning up and organizing stuff so that tomorrow we will put up the tree and start decorating it.
Life is not about what we should be doing. We should always be doing something. Life is about living. I won't be able to get this back. All three of us hanging out and having fun. So for today, I will enjoy my babies while I have them.
