Some Days

You let the laundry go
Skip the dishes. Skip the bills
Shut off the computer
Quiet the house.
Forget about all the events crowding the calendar
Teeball, spring pictures, birthday parties, appointments, perscriptions.

Settle back into bed after they lay their own heads down
Read a book
Take a nap
Rest yourself.

It's a head cold.
No big deal.
It will pass
Order will regain.
Enjoy the break.


  1. Yes! Thank you for this. I was feeling all headache-y and gross yesterday but feeling guilty about not doing the gazillion things on my ever-growing to-do list (the main is just doing the laundry for heavens sake) but you are so right. It will get done.

    Hope your head cold goes away quickly!

  2. I love the feeling of lying on my bed (even if it's just for 10 minutes) during nap time in the middle of the day. Heaven! Feel better.
