Just one of those days


Have you ever had a day where you feel so lazy it scares you?

A while back, I was in a really crummy slump. My family and I were waiting for a tow truck to come pick up Zack's truck when we decided to go to the bank next door. I needed to buy some stamps and knew that the ATM carried some. Anyway, as we were pulling up I asked Zack if he had his ATM card. He did, but asked me why I didn't have mine. I told him I did, but that it was all the way in my back pocket.

Another time, I was asking everyone what they wanted for dinner - tuna melts or tuna salad sandwiches. Zack said that it was entirely up to me. I decided to make the sandwiches because it was too much trouble to reach over and turn the oven on.

Lazy - with a capital "L".


Luckily, with five kids, laziness is never permanent.

You, lazy...yeah right. I think that was a perfectly valid reason for choosing which meal to make.

Oh Amber...this post made my day! How funny! It does not sound like you are lazy you are just simplifying! I am the one that does not even have a To-Do-List, most days...

Oh how I wish I could be lazy. Today I decided to let my house go for an hour and just veg on my bed and watch tv. I never do this! When Kent came home and saw the house he was amazed. I just reminded him that this is what happens when Mom stops for JUST one hour. AMAZING what can happen!

I've been like that recently too... although I like to say it's just pregnancy fatuige but I am just a lazy person and fight it everyday. It's actually one of my personal demons that I struggle with constantly. It's nice to hear I'm not the only one, even if it is completely not your norm... though I have the feeling that my laziness does have it's limit, especially once this second baby comes along. My napping days are probably over.

I know I spelled several words wrong in there.

Ha! I love it! Funny pictures! Mmmmm tuna melts...very family to get those! ;)

I watched the Bachelor Marathon ALL DAY yesterday. I know I won't be able to do that with 2 kids though, so I soaked it up as my break for the week.

I have those days too. It's nice to do that sometimes, or else we would all go crazy!

Thanks for the reassurance that other people feel that way too! :) That's the way we walk Maverick most days in the winter - it's too blasted cold for us all to suffer! :) Ha ha, I have to save that picture.
