Today I feel more of a mummy than mommy. Ever have those days? When you are fighting off a cold and going through the motions of daily life like a zombie while what you really want to do is succumb to exhaustion? These are times when I throw away the checklists and listen in to what I really need.
Today it was about skipping errands that are not important. Ordering in dinner and playing checkers by firelight. Losing those games with a smile at my opponent's glee. Reading and being read to without feeling guilty about the 101 things on that checklist. I'll worry about preparing the garden for winter tomorrow. Tonight I am content with being a mummy. A mummy with a hot cup of Theraflu. Mmmmm.
