a lovely question (Money Shot Monday)

True confession: I spent the entire day in the same yoga pants and t-shirt I wore to bed last night. I added a sweatshirt, and I did not wash my hair.



My day was filled with a morning of Bubby at preschool, which allowed me time to work one-on-one with Bugaboo - that is when he wasn't too busy asking for "Bubba?" and "Dadda?" We had terrible Campells'/Lipton soups for lunch, and my oldest spent way too much time with PBS while I put dinner in the crockpot, went through half a box of tissue, and tried to keep my coughing to a minimum.

When The Hubs got home early today (the one perk of exam days), one of the first things out of his mouth was, "How would you like a couple of hours to yourself?"

My yoga-pants-unwashed-hair-wearing-self got in the car before wasting any time on looks.  I had two books, a journal, and hot cup of coffee waiting for me on this rainy afternoon. The girl almost half my age at Panera looked at me with a puzzled but happy smile.  I wasn't sure if she was curious about my sweatshirt (which is for our local young adult community) or if there was some hidden food/snot/slobber remnant on my sleeve. For once I didn't care one bit what I looked like.

I made my way to a booth and enjoyed the almost-silence.  (There is always that one person talking loudly on her cell phone about personal things to disturb the silence. But even that didn't bother me this afternoon.)

  1. Ah ... leisure time to yourself. It's one of the best things in life. Panera Bread is one of my favorite places to hang out.

    I read this awhile back and when I read your posts about your son and his delays I remembered this and thought you might find it interesting/worthwhile.
