I know. I KNOW.
On Friday, I didn't even check my email until 6 p.m. Six o'clock! In the evening! Not a single moment of internet usage in any of the a.m. or early p.m. hours. Craziness, I tell you.
So here is the really good and exciting news that makes all of this doable and even pleasant- Tommy has been working for a friend from church who has his own landscaping business. Yay! Thanks to the early springing of spring here in southwest Michigan (can you say shorts and tank tops in the beginning of MARCH? It's wild, yo), his business is flooded with business and he needed help. So he asked Tommy and Tommy said yes, and then I said YES!
But as it turns out, the reason I was able to do all my interwebzing in the past is that a) my prayer life was pitiful b) my house was a wreck and c) my husband was at home to pick up the slack. And then I went and vowed to get a) and b) under control this Lent. 'Cause I'm a fool. Why couldn't I just give up sugar or something?
Anyway, so there I am trying to pray more AND clean more and suddenly my back-up
Oh, and also, I took a nap. I took a NAP instead of checking my email. Or facebook. Or twitter. Or writing something. I slept on the sofa while the toddler slept in her bed and the big ones hitched a ride to their ceramics class and the boy played with cars and periodically asked me if he could eat things in the living room. To which I, of course, mumbled "yes!" because um, hello?
So between the lame and the boring and the normal and the NAP and the more boring and the additional lame, I have been sorely absent from internet. But for a good cause! All for a good cause.
Now the sun is shining through the trees and the birds are chirping and the frogs are singing their morning song. Breakfast is on the stove.
And I'm saying "Yes!".
