I was lazy today. Not just a little lazy. Like... slob on the couch in a sweat shirt and pajama pants lazy watching Diego and Thomas the Tank Engine with Jeb lazy.
I did not write. I did not read. I sat in a near coma-like trance and thought about nothing. Except Diego and those darn red-eyed tree frogs that were in danger.
Around 3:00 pm, I took a bath and put on make up just to try and make me like myself. It didn't work. I was a slob. A bum. There was no masking it with make-up. Or Bath and Body coconut body spray.
After picking the girls up from school, I did force myself to make my children dinner. Afterwards, I went into the garage to retrieve Jeb's train from the car and slipped in a puddle of green fluid that had leaked from Matt's Danger Ranger. And I fell. Not just a little fall. Like... feet fly up in the air, land flat on my back in the green fluid fall. As I lay there, with Jeb saying, "Oh. My. Gosh. Mama, you fall down," I couldn't help but think... "This is what you get for being a bum, Ang. This is what you get."
In all seriousness... I think we all deserve a day like today with no guilt involved. But how hard is that? I find that guilt sneaks up on me at every corner. And the thing is... if we are seeking His face and His will, there's no need for guilt. He took care of that a long time ago.
Were you lazy today? Or did you solve world issues while I watched Thomas? Do tell.
