Earlier this month Avery celebrated her seventh birthday. Seven!! I realize that in seven more years we will be wading thigh deep through teenage parenting. I swear I was just a twenty-something yesterday with my biggest worry being if my clothes were clean for work and where I would be hanging out with my friends. Now on my Saturdays I do things like hang a gagillion paper lanterns around my house and make a braid out of yellow streamers that covers the whole upstairs goes out the front door and ends at the curb.
After spending the whole day as the best mommy ever :) doing all Rapunzel party stuff all the time, I decided to take today off so to speak. A day spent on the sofa. Well mostly on the sofa...kind of hard to really pull this off with kids that can't reach the top half of the fridge or pantry....but it was close. I relaxed on the sofa to work on Aidez while my husband watched football. Now I don't care about football at all. I know there are a lot of sports fans out there but for me football/baseball/soccer whatever are just a vehicle for me to sit and knit or surf the Internet and read blogs and plan for the holidays and well I'm sure you get it...just relax with myself, some knitting and my laptop. My husband close by watching "insert sport" and talking with me and my kids playing nearby.
I have some cooking to share and some tips for what to do with the last of your tomatoes but right now I'm going to soak up the last little bits of my Sunday.
Take care friends ~Andrea
