I had a magical moment today when both boys were sleeping, the internet was down, and I didn’t have to start making dinner yet. Amazing. I knew it wouldn’t last long, so I took full advantage of it. In other words, I sat on the couch and did very little. I read a bit, thought a bit about other things I could be doing, and then put my feet up, sank into an oversize pillow, and closed my eyes. I did not sleep. I rested. I relaxed. I released tension. It felt nice. It was one of those moments in which I didn’t realize how much I had been using my body until I let it do nothing. It thanked me for that. When Manchild 2 finally started making some noise, I slowly revived and played with him on the rug until he no longer wanted to play on the rug, and then I tried to keep him quiet so his brother could get a good nap. Like I said, magical.
About the sugar-fast: I’ve decided to join my sister-in-law Jodie and cut out sweets starting on Monday and going until birthday season which is about a month from now. Jodie’s birthday is two days before Micah’s and three days before Manchild 2’s. My friend Heather is also joining us, and, hooray hooray, will be helping us me through our my deprivation (hahaha) with a weekly post until No Sugar Month is over. Or maybe I should call it Low Sugar Month. I may cut myself some slack on the weekends. Maybe. We’ll see. Anyway, I’m excited to have some guest posts, and I’m especially excited because it’s Heather. I think you’ll like her as much as I do.
All the boys at my house are asleep now and it’s time I joined them. Good night.
