It is Monday morning, the first of 2011, and I am in denial. Today on blogs all over the world wide interweb, I see posts with menu plans and New Years resolutions and reflections and fresh starts. But here at MOAH, we will have none of that. NONE, I tell you!
Later this week I will attempt to unpack the bulging suitcases that line my upstairs hallway, make a meal plan, grocery shop, take down 2 Christmas trees and the outdoor lights and decorations, organize the kids’ rooms to make room for their Christmas loot, write the 6 articles that I have due by the middle of this month, hit the pavement in my Vibrams for my first run of 2011, and tackle the blog designs that are patiently waiting in my queue.
But today? Today I plan to do to . . . nothing.
After I get my kids off to school, I plan to spend the rest of the day in my sweatpants reading blogs and drinking coffee and hanging out on Twitter and Facebook and maybe even reading more of The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer while sitting by the fire in my slippers.
If I get really ambitious, I might get a shower before the kids get home from school, but I’m not making any promises. Everything else can wait.
What are YOU doing today?
