The perfect morning

I didn't realize how frustrating it has been to get Dixie to school every morning until I woke up this morning. I was instantly happy when I woke up and realized that no body had to go anywhere--no school, church, early morning chiro appts, classes at the gym or work. We could just stay in our warmed pajama-ed haven from the cold.

Dowlan got up and fed the kids breakfast while I clutched my pillow. He sat next to me and asked which I'd prefer: a pile of bacon, french toast and coffee or more sleep. I told him 'you' and we snuggled for an hour, half-asleep. Every now and then a kid or a cat would hop in and cuddle, then get bored with our inertness.

It is 10:30 and nothing has been done. No one is dressed. Nothing is cleaned. No errands run or phonecalls made. Life is so good.


edited to add: I just saw that the high today is 36ºF. I think we'll maintain this status as long as possible.

Jealous!!

I was supposed to be at work at 8!!

(didn't get here at 8, but that's not the point - 8 is a far cry from the 10 I've been used to!)

I'm so jealous. Here it's 19 degrees, feels like 5 degrees with windchill, and the only creature I have to cuddle with was evicted from the bedroom at 5 AM for yowling and clawing my curtains (it's a cat, not a man).

I just realized what a lonely crazy cat lady that last post makes me sound like.

It snowing here, and I am still in my pj pants, neither of the girls are dressed, and it isn't looking good. Why take the time to do that if we aren't leaving? LOL! Enjoy your day :)

I love a good pajama day! I try to have them as often as possible.
