Until last night, I had completely forgotten that Monday was a holiday. As a homeschooling (school anytime, anywhere) and self-employed (work anytime, anywhere) family – holidays like Labor Day don’t usually mean that much to us (until we try to figure out why we didn’t get any mail).
As it turned out, Matt had a day off from soccer with the college team, so he was home most of the day getting caught up on other work. We didn’t do school work officially – although I kept catching my eleven year old reading science books in his spare time. :) We caught up on laundry, thoroughly cleaned the kitchen, and for a little while this afternoon – I sat on the porch soaking in the sun and having extra time with God (and then with Malachi who came outside to see what I was up to). A couple of college students came to join us for our grilled bbq chicken dinner, some of us played cards until bedtime, and in general, we enjoyed a low-key day.
Since I’d forgotten we didn’t have any major outside responsibilities today, it was like being given a bonus day. Now, instead of starting a new work/school week on Monday, we’re starting on Gratituesday. How ’bout that?
