I have the morning off. No I do not have every day off. I have a house to clean, meals to cook, laundry to wash/fold/iron, a kid to homeschool. Most days I can hardly find a moment to sit down. Today Alonzo and Colin are off at Wildlife Camp until 2:30, and Grayson is off playing with a friend until sometime midday. Is there anyone out there who speaks British and can translate midday to a specific time? Does that mean noon? Thanks to some hard work earlier this week the house has been cleared of the Christmas clutter and is actually clean(ish) and I can simply relax.

I have treated myself to a lovely peaceful omelet breakfast, and am now preparing for a do-it-yourself pedicure. No kids running around arguing and fighting, no Scooby Doo cartoons, no tortoise in the living room. The tortoise has been located and relegated the screened porch, the TV is tuned to the South African version of HGTV, the A/C is running, a scented candle is lit, and I have a cup of coffee and a pitcher of water with sliced lemon close at hand. Ahhh....Life is good.
