I woke up feeling not so great so I decided for the first time in a very long time to just go back to bed. I rarely do this, I normally just get up and power through the day, but I thought that if I slept a little longer I might feel better.
I was right, when I work up I felt significantly better.
We didn’t really do anything today. That seems so strange, but instead of tackling some big project or going somewhere we all just did nothing. Well my boys spent most of the day doing homework (typical Sunday) but the rest of us just sat around, except for trying to finish the laundry.
I’ve been on a quest to catch up on laundry this weekend. I’ve done 19 loads over the past few days. Not only was it our regular laundry, I decided to wash all the sheets and towels. And I decided to finally wash all the sweaters and delicates that can’t go in the dryer.
And of course because I decided to wash all the sheets, someone will wet the bed today. That’s just how life works.
It is almost all folded and put away. Almost.
I have this strange fantasy that one day I will locate all the missing socks and create matches. This will never happen, but I continue to press on searching the house for strays and putting the extras in our sock bag. I have no idea how much time I’ve spent on single socks, but I’m sure it is far too much.
The kids got to talk to Commander for a long time today. The internet connection held up for their entire conversation.
It was a good day.
My husband has been deployed to the Middle East for 274 days. These are my real thoughts expressing my heart during his absence. I appreciate your prayers and kind words as we cope, adapt, and carry on without him until August 2014. To read from the beginning, click here.
