much needed rest

Yesterday I took the day off...from the internet.

*gasp*

Actually, I took the day off from most everything.

When the Little Mister was awake, I played with him, cuddled with him, laughed with him, read to him.

When he got too wiggly and wanted to play by himself on the floor I did laundry, cleaned the bathroom, and started the process of cleaning the kitchen. (It was only halfway done when it was time for bed, and I was beat. I'll do it today.)

When the Little Mister slept, I treated myself to rest of my own: I watched my Buffy the Vampire Slayer dvds. (Started over at season one. They all look so young!!)

Aside from the obvious (we both ate, I changed diapers, etc) that is literally all we did yesterday. And it was lovely.

Today I have much more to do. More housework, get five month pictures ready to mail, cook myself a real meal. But you can't take yesterday away from me!

  3. I do this sometimes. Unplug myself. Make myself really tune into my kids and be productive. I always feel so much better after a day like that.

  4. That sounds like a great day. (Except maybe for the cleaning. Too bad that a day off still has that...)

    Buffy was a great choice for unwinding. I know what you mean about how young they all look in season one. Even Giles.

  7. You go, girl. The internet is great, but it definitely shouldn't rule our lives. (And clean kitchens are overrated, too!)
    That picture of the base in snow brought back memories!

  9. Me again. Sorry for all the comments. Just had to figure out what stupid thing I was doing wrong now! Sorry you had to be at the other end of my learning curve!

  10. I'm so glad you took some time off for just you and the Mister! I did the same yesterday, and it was wonderful!

  13. I love those days. Days to just sit and do whatever ya want. That is how the weekends should be enjoyed.

  14. Sometimes these are the most special days. The internet can be extremely distracting.

  16. Every now and then you really need a break from everything. And this is very difficult with children. To add to everything else you have going, I tagged you for a meme - 7 random things about yourself. With NaBloPoMo, maybe it will relieve you of coming up with something to write on one of the days?
