Wanted: a dull day

I am in need of one long, boring day - with nowhere to be, nothing pressing to be done, no reason to be presentable, and no need to think... about anything. Yes, it has been one of those weeks. 2 weeks, actually. I have had something going on every single day! Doctor appointments, therapy appointments, church meetings, and tommorrow, surgery even (my baby is getting tubes) !

I have a stack of library books, a freshly made bed in a freshly clean bedroom and a pack of Dove chocolates calling my name! Oh how I'd love to spend the entire day with all 3! Oh, how I need it! But if I'm lucky, I'll get a couple measly hours tonight before bed (all the while fighting to stay awake and enjoy this much anticipated and well deserved moment of peace and quiet)! I'm sure you can all commiserate.

I enjoy being on the go. I truly do. So, there is irony in my wish, because if I did have a dull day, I'd probably go nuts. Worse nuts than me running around like a chicken with it's head cut off this morning to: get the kids ready for school, make taco soup, dress up, drop Drew off to a sitter's with provisions for a 3 hour stay, and be at the Stake Center by 10am for a Stake Primary Luncheon that I've been organizing for the last 2 weeks (yes - all this in addition to the forementioned responsibilities). While there is bliss in relaxation and freedom, I get a boost from the crazy busy life that keeps me driven and feeling useful.

I guess this is the oxymoron of every mom's life!

I used to have stuff almost every day. Now it's consolidated to just Wednesday and I thought I'd love it. I don't. I liked having a reason to take a shower... ;)
