I guess today..

I guess today I just needed to relax and think about things.
I have not made time to run so I feel a bit blue about that.  I am still single parenting and although I am content for the most part, I am weary and can't find that part of myself deep within that gets me out of bed before the spawn and get on the treadmill.

I have won some giveaways and received  cool stuff in the mail.  Is sunny and the wind is warm.  The spawn are climbing trees with floppy hats on and lunch boxes filled with old toys being toted around lovingly.
I have giveaways to host and new books to read and review and was even inspired watching Jamie Oliver's food revolution and have photos to post of cooking with Milo and Archimedes. I have drafts of blogs to finish although they seem stale now.
I just don't feel like doing any of it. Even after several cups of coffee.   So I am going to sit here and think a while  and just be. Maybe put on some music and tan my legs in the sun.

Hang in there...my husband travels a fair amount and I know it can be so tiring. You've had a big stretch of it. You're smart to kick back and give in.

It's a great time to have a little break and recharge.

Enjoy the rest!

Oh Angie,
I know how you feel. We all have those days where we just want to sit and do nothing:) It is perfectly okay to take a break and just be:)

I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

You are too hot to be single parenting. How about a 2nd husband to help out around the house? Or maybe you could twist your husbands' arm into getting a second wife? ;-)

I felt like that the week before. Being on your own is exhausting. Sometimes it's nice to just rest. Enjoy!
