What I Didn't Do Today

Today I didn’t:

  • go to the grocery store
  • finish my home pedicure
  • do the dishes
  • clean my closet
  • wash clothes
  • keep my phone with me the whole day
  • cook
  • put on makeup
  • wash my hair
  • mark much off my to do list

Instead, I:

  • said a prayer for my mom, who was having a procedure done today
  • scared the bug spray guy who came unannounced(use your imagination…)
  • read books with the kids
  • got the two books I’d ordered for my book clubs
  • read a few chapters
  • took my kids to Old Clinton BBQ(home of the Best BBQ in GA and Gray’s claim to fame)
  • had a picnic with my trio
  • taught my kids the theme song to “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”
  • danced with all my kids
  • slept through watched Pinocchio with the big kids
  • enjoyed the cool breeze and watched my kids play happily together
  • laid in the grass and looked at clouds with the kiddos(and didn’t feel itchy afterwards!)
  • laughed at my baby girl wearing mittens because she was cold(It’s 80°. But after months of 100° weather, I guess 80° is relatively cold.)
  • had a wonderful, fabulous, beautiful day.

    I love the things you did more than the things you didn’t. =)
