I Did Nothing Today-----And I Lived

Facebook Conversation at 9am this morning-

Me: Day off today. What to do?
Friend: I dare you to do nothing!
Me: long pause
Me: Maybe I'll scrapbook?
Friend: That's the spirit!

Why is it so hard for me to sit and do nothing? I feel wasteful, selfish and lazy! It's exactly what I did today. Nothing. Well not really nothing. I did organize my bookmarks, play on my blog, took a nap, visited with a neighbor, watched TV with son, soaked up some sunshine with son in kiddie pool, made dinner for family, and menu planned. This actually seems like a lot to most people. To me this was a totally selfish and lazy day.....but I will be a better mom, wife and friend because of it! So today I will celebrate my version of lazy.

I feel EXACTLY the same way. I cannot sit and watch TV even, if I'm not doing something else "useful" like writing on the computer, folding laundry, sorting toys...the ability to BE STILL is often lost on us!

Thanks for stopping by!
