This past weekend when I realized i was really NOT at the center of things, my time was marked by all I did not do.
I didn’t help put up the new basketball hoop.
I didn’t hold the toddler so she wouldn’t get hurt as they hoisted it.
I didn’t even so much as hold a screwdriver
I didn’t go out and get the fireworks
AND I didn’t prepare any meals…
Really I just worked at my work and folded laundry.
Oh and I took these pictures. This is our oldest, Carrie, who had more sense than I did and more energy too. She was a key part of the basketball-net-hoisting duty AND she, wise girl, got out on the deck.
It’s Ok I think. Summer is just starting, right? It is, right? Isn’t it? Someone tell me it’s not a sin to waste a Sunday such as we just had!
