The start of my spring break has been just perfect. With this loooong winter and so many changes happening in my district, this break was much needed. I've had this longing for stress-free living.
Sunday afternoon as the girls napped (yeah!), I actually lounged on the couch under a blanket sipping hot chocolate in the middle of the day.
I wondered aloud, "When was the last time I just sat and relaxed in the middle of the day?"
I held my breath because I said this out loud with my husband in the room, waiting for a suggestion of how I could productively use my time. There are always things to do around the house or for the girls or for school or for me, especially on a Sunday before the week begins again.
"Probably four years ago before the girls were born," he replied. "Or last week when you took a nap with them."
I let out a sigh. I gave him a "you're right" kind of look and said, "I meant awake."
Then I sat on the couch in the middle of the day and thought in quiet. And I enjoyed doing nothing.
