Today was decent. We drove to Maryland to hang out with a family that we met through my daughter’s acting. It was a decent time with a yummy lunch. Then we came back to our neck of the woods and stopped at Starbucks for the 2nd time of the day. Ugh-I have to cut down in 2015. Then we came home and I watched cable from my tablet while my kid played with a neighbor. Then I cooked dinner, we went to a Christmas lights display at a local botanical garden and it was gorgeous. Then we came inside and sat by the fire and had smores. It was nice to come in from the cold and rain and sit by the picturesque fire, but after a couple of mini-smores, I was done. I don’t know how people eat a lot of that stuff-yuck. Then we came home and looked at pictures and my kid went to bed late. It was her last late night for awhile.

I am totally being a bad person, but I am skipping choir and church tomorrow. I want to sleep and chill and clean up and enjoy our last day not having to get up early and not being on a schedule. I really enjoyed today, actually this whole week. It is the first time in years that I have had days that I have slept until 11:30 or 12:00. I love simple things like writing in my journal and sleeping in and watching movies and playing games. This is been a good day and tomorrow will be even better because event though I have obligations at church, we are going nowhere at all.
I think that sometimes taking time to just enjoy chilling out with loved ones is just as spiritually nourishing and healthy as going for a run or attending church. I have decided from this point on to not overbook and to enjoy every day as much as I can with my child because before I know it, she will be grown and living her own life. I hope that you all take time to smell the roses in 2015 and realize that simple things can equal up to a good day, month or year.
