Phew! Today I took the day off! It's hard to keep up with these retirees, y'know?
So yesterday evening, on the way home from church (which nearly spent me entirely), I told Julia that today, I was taking the day off. (She said "hooray!!!")
So I did. I spent most of the day with my feet generally in this position:
There's just too much fun going on, but I don't have the emotional energy for it, all the time. Besides, I need to save up for the whole holiday season, because I don't want to miss one tiny bit of that fun!!
Julia had an "art day." I haven't been as diligent as I intended about giving her time to paint and draw, so today we made up for it. Besides, she's reading Robinson Crusoe, read "Rip Van Winkle," earlier this week, and is memorizing Milton's "When I Consider." When it's time to worry about her falling behind, I'll let you know -- heehee! She found Jane Eyre "creepy," so her Gothic-meter is in good repair.
Tomorrow I must go to town with my mother for the day to shop. I need a good night's sleep; she's tough to keep up with!
