Is Doing Nothing Even an Option?

I did nothing* today. Or at least it felt like nothing.

*”Nothing” may include, but is not limited to, hand-stitching a felt doll, writing several thank-you notes, responding to e-mail, baking bread, reading stories, changing diapers, visiting neighbors, administering medicine to a sick child, vacuuming, washing two sinkfuls of dishes, putting together several creatures out of trio blocks, blogging, eating an entire bowl of popcorn, answering 5,000 questions ranging from why Canada is a country and not a state to why some people are born boys and others are born girls, kickboxing with Billy Blanks, comforting crying children, reading to myself, removing children from precarious situations, and showering.

  1. This is GREAT! And, I’m glad you realize that your “nothing” is actually a lot! 🙂

    It is kind of sad that I can feel so lazy knowing that I’m really doing a lot . . . it’s just not what I had planned or hoped to do.
