Welcome Summer!!

All grades were turned in by Wednesday and I worked most of the day on Thursday in my office just trying to straighten everything up.  We will be moving offices sometime this summer so I've been trying to get some of my office things packed up and ready. 

I woke up this morning with every intention of doing the same.
But I just couldn't do it.

I spent half of the morning in my pajamas...washed load after load of clothes and dishes, changed sheets, cleaned the pool filter, arranged some pictures on my mantle...and napped.
I did finally put on some shorts and a t-shirt...but no make-up, my hair in a ponytail and barefoot for most of the day...when I didn't have on my house shoes ;)

The best nap of the day was with Uh-Oh...all the chaos of late has had Uh-Oh in a tizzy...his meow has taken on an alert distressed level...he's been in and out at all times of the night and day...he just can't seem to settle down...I know exactly how he feels.

But, today we both relaxed on the couch...he was purring and I was snoring.  It was nice not to have to feel anxious about what was next...where I had to be...or a stack of papers to grade.

We still have a senior party next week, the firstborn's graduation and a trip to Maryland and summer school...
But it was nice today to just take the day and be home.
Really Home.
Have I mentioned how much I love HOME?


  1. Congratulations on spending your first full day at home! Pajama days are great. I'm about 3 weeks away from enjoying the same bliss.

  2. I love this! I'm so glad you got a relaxing day. It's amazing what a nap can do to refresh your spirit.

  3. Glad you could get a pyjama day :)


  4. Sooooo jealous! We still have 10 school days left and I don't know if we're going to make it.


    People without cats do not know what a truly great nap is. :)

  5. I love being at home too. I never get to sit down so when I have the chance, it's a treat.

    Your cat is named Uh-Oh? Too cute.

  6. What a much deserved break you had. Home is a marvelous place and nothing beats a good nap.
