Monday was one of those magic days. It rained all day. We haven't had any real rain here since at least June, so it was fabulous to have a dreary, drizzly, rainy day to just stay inside and be cozy.
Sarah and Jason both wore their pjs all day, as we had nowhere to be & nothing to do other than putter around the house.
After the kids got home from school, we all had cups of tea, and plowed through a huge pile of baby carrots with dip. Sarah and Jason colored while Evie and William actually sat and did homework without complaining or dragging their feet.
I didn't mind being a mom so much on Monday - and I wonder if that was due to a shift in my attitude, or the fact that they were all being so pleasant? Can a person just decide to be happy and go from there?
The forecast for Thursday is more rain, we may get 2 to 4 inches by the time this front passes through. I'm betting that today won't be as pleasant as Monday though - as I type this at midnight on Wednesday, Evie is still awake, with a fever of 101 - she won't be in school, and I can only hope that the rest of them don't come down with whatever she has.
I guess that's the lot of a mother - you never know what the next day will bring so make the most of the one you have in front of you.
