This is what energetic looks like after two weeks with our kids and a long drive home - arrival sometime around 6:00 AM because we are lousy travelers - yup, still in my nightgown while watching the early evening news:

Sounds like the perfect way to spend this day

I've never been one to stay in my jammies. Not even when I'm sick. But today? It just seems easier to go from one nightgown to another when I finally get around to showering. Soon, very soon.

When I have a "do nothing" day, I tell myself, "there is always later." Sometimes we just deserve a "do nothing" day.

Stray Thoughts 2.0

This is very true for me, even after 35+ years working in education:

"My kids", some of whom are now in their 40's, are still "my kids." As are "their kids", and now there are some grandkids.

Yep...same here. Every once in a while I run into one of my "kids" who are now married and have littles of their own. Just happened yesterday.

You know how it is when you plan out something in your mind, and it looks perfect, and you take things apart and move them around and set them back in some semblance of new order...and then you just really don't like the end result? *sigh* I hate when that happens...

Yep, I know the feeling, CG. I re-arranged the guest room recently, but then the wall art looked odd, but I didn't want to hammer any more nail holes in the walls. So I moved everything back the way it was.

When you see a cooking video on facebook thinking that you could replicate it, turns out you can't...

They make it seem so easy.
