Slow down

Although the day ended beautifully--warm weather and sunny skies--it started out quite gloomy, hence this morning's 100 words:
It's rainy today, dark and gray, and I don't feel like doing much of anything. I certainly don't feel like making a trip to the post office and another one to Sears, lugging the stroller out of the back of the van, strapping in the youngest, all the while getting soaked as the rain pours down. Today is a day that should be spent inside, reading books with the kids, writing, drinking hot coffee while wrapped up in a warm blanket on the couch. I welcome these gloomy days--they remind me to slow down, take time out, enjoy life.


  1. Sounds like you made a happy choice. It's good you didn't take my parka and mittens advice!

  2. did you go out? you described my day, but by goodness i went to my once every 3 years manicure w/my friend who is moving! ahhhhh =)

    but i remember THOSE days and it always seems to be raining on grocery day...

  3. Tara: No, we didn't go out--and believe me when I say that all of us were completely stir-crazy by the time my husband got home. I took them to storytime today, thinking getting out would do us all some good, and they both threw fits, so back home we went. Ugh. It's been a day...
