I told myself that this year I would take a day to myself, and only myself. On Monday I went on a walk, made cookies for the boys, and read a book.
Kindergartners are the best.
“Okay, who wants to go with Emily to the bathroom as a partner?”
“I will, Mrs. Kendall. I’m her total BFF.”
5th graders aren’t bad, either.
“How about this one? Newbery winner, set in France…”
“Blech. I don’t think so. It’s just so…childish.”
“You know you’re a child, right?”
“Yeah, but I’m a matured one.”
On my way home from work, I remembered I had a bag of red potatoes that was fast approaching expiration. I roasted them for dinner and served them with sautéed kale mix and grilled salmon burgers. I avoided food waste and made a dinner everyone actually enjoyed! I swear to God, it’s the little things. The joy remembering to roast those damn potatoes brought me is ludicrous.
This post will be my second of the week, which, hey! That is more than I’ve written in months. I gave myself a goal of 2 posts per week for the new year. So far, so good!
