Some Days Are Just Like That

It's a holiday.  Martin Luther King day.  All of The Native's are home.  We had plans.  Big plans.

Yesterday, I went to church.  I felt great!  I was happy.  I smiled.  I came home.  I got tired.  I took a nap.  I slept for about fifteen minutes.  I woke up.  I wasn't feeling so good.  I went down.

Having older Native's to take over the younger ones is pure heaven on earth as I lay in bed listening to them fix food and care for their younger siblings.  Games are played with them.  Stories are read to them.

Today is a new day.  The plans.  They've changed.  I'm still in bed.  Me.  My laptop.  Julie, Levi's dog who cares for me now too.  Levi.

Levi wants to watch a movie on my laptop.  He wants to watch G-Force.  I was going to write a fabulous blog.  Plans have changed.  I'm going to let Levi watch a movie on my laptop. 

Me. Levi.  Snuggling in bed while the sheep outside my window should be eating pasta instead of grass.  According to Levi.

I need to go now.  The movie is about to begin....... The Native's are home.  I don't want to miss one second of our holiday.

  1. Actually, it sounds pretty dang good to me. Two weeks is too long. I prohibit the world from taking the SM away for that long ever again (but you still get the money he would have made going). You've trained them well, girl. They may range wildly up and down the sidewalk and knock each other off high places, but they are competent and loving and responsible, and that is a blessing beyond price.

  3. We all need days of lying in bed and listening to the magic happening all around us.

  4. Thanks for letting me peek into your life. Cute pics of Levi and Kamal. Sounds like you're a pretty amazing mom. From the looks of the pics, lots of fun too. Hope you feel better and have enjoyed your weekend.

    I should have stayed in bed yesterday, too.

  6. UUUGGGG. I hate this disease. It never ends and we never know when it will strike. I pray for you and am glad you have such a loving family to take care of you. Cause if you didn't, I'd come take care of you!
