Halla-dayum-loo-ya... it is FRIDAY. And not only that, it is a long weekend, too!
What am I going to do with myself? I wish I could say "nothing".
It is supposed to rain, but I don't care. I plan on relaxing and listening to the thunder. I don't want to "do" anything. I am always doing something... working, talking, cajoling, petting... I want to stop for a bit.
I want to shut my eyes and breathe slowly. I want to listen to nothing. I want peace and quiet.
But it won't happen. Not with two kids, two dogs, two cats, and Carl. Nope. We'll be going to the movies, cutting grass, cleaning (a little), and more.
Dad has invited us to the lake on Monday, so we'll be driving, loading gear, packing clothes, planning lunches...
Doesn't sound very relaxing, but I am NOT complaining. At least we have things to do. And we have family to do it with. I have a job that allows me to take some time off.
Thank god it is Friday. Bring on 3:30 so I can take advantage of it all!
