The work for a Mom is greater on the weekends: laundry to catch up on…household problems to solve and support, people to feed three meals a day, events to provide food for…people to care for. My back problems have been worse lately on the weekends. Imagine that. Trying to take time to rest and work on exercises to help that.
Good moments of rest this weekend, chosen rest, small fix-it jobs. I’m so thankful The Hub is resting some. catching up on “The Shack”. We were going to read it out loud together, but it proved a better read individually, so he had to wait until I was finished.
Both of us, reading on a cool porch, playing with the dog. Me, a Creative Keepsakes magazine. I tore it to shreds. I’m DONE reading it. I like to feel DONE with a magazine as opposed to those that lay around for too many years. It is totally used up, torn up, duly noted, filed, and ready to throw away, in one day…today, that gives me joy. (I also have some magazines I like to keep and enjoy over and over again with seasons.)
Quotes from Red today:
“Mom? You are MOPPING the floor? But, isn’t it new?”
[It’s been in a month now…don’t I wish? I like how he thinks.]
Later, to his sister, “I’m starting my LEGO ‘career’ over. Today, I’m started all over with my LEGO career.”
“What do you mean, ‘starting over’?”
“I’m tearing apart everything I’ve done and I’m making something all new.”
“No! Don’t do that!”
“Well, some of it. Most of it. I’m making something all new.”
I liked it.
