All day long.
I did get dressed...if you call a sports bra, ratty GAP sweatshirt and a pair of old, hand-me-down, thread bare, I-can-see-my-knees and the color of my panties jeans that really should be trashed dressed. I'm pretty sure that I brushed my teeth. I put my hair in a bandanna and voila! ....good enough.
There was no newspaper today so really, there was no need to go outside. I did have to stick my head out the door when one of the boys' friends came over looking for them...but it was just for a few seconds...not enough to qualify for "going outside".
What did I actually do today?
I listened to my new KBCO Studio C 20th Anniversary CD that my good friend, Lila, sent to me for Christmas. The radio station KBCO in Boulder, Colorado, every year puts out a most incredible CD of performances in their studio by artists who are in town for concerts. The proceeds of this CD go to the Boulder County Aids Project.
Lila, the dearheart that she is, will stand in line for this CD every year because there is a limited number of CDs available....and yes, I know she also buys one for herself...I appreciate her buying one for me so much....so I always offer a lot of sympathy when she gives me the "I stood in line for 2 hours, in the snow and cold....just for you."
guilt trip spiel. I love ya honey!!
I also watched about 5 episodes of the sitcom "Joey"....from the second season. I didn't even know that show lasted that long!!!
Even though I can totally understand why the show tanked, there were some incredibly funny parts. I'm convinced that the writers know my brother D. because some of the Joey's lines....I could hear my brother saying exactly the same things!! (And just for the record....my other brother? Yeah...he could have been Chandler. When we all get together....it's a laugh a minute...though sometimes, only we think we are really that funny!!! I think I'm probably Phoebe....just in case you were wondering....maybe Rachel.)
Today....I also did a lot of thinking about getting prepared for classes that are starting back up on Monday. Mental preparation for going back to work takes a long time...I may need another day to work on that.
The thing about today is this.....I almost never get the opportunity to do this. There is always something that needs to be done, someone to be taken somewhere, shopping to be done, lessons to plan, mothering to do, laundry and other householdy type chores that have been put off that really need to be taken care of, or a list of 20 other things that are important.
Today....that list? pffffflllltttttt.
The boys? They were off playing for the majority of the day.
The K-man? One of his old high school buddies who lives in Tokyo and only comes back to Nagasaki two times a year is here and they got together at noon with a couple other friends. He didn't get back until later this evening.
Dinner? Leftover chili from New Year's Eve. We made taco rice (taco salad on rice....it's actually very good.....the people in Okinawa started this dish!!). Then the boys watched more of the Sponge Bob DVD and me? Yeah....you got it...after a nice soak in a bubble bath, it was back on the couch for me...this time with a romance novel (Sorry Bad Mom....it was necessary...but I thought of you...and smiled!!!)
Tonight, my dear friends....I wish you all a most relaxing-do nothing-feel great kind of day!!
