A Sunday Slice
Yesterday, I wrote about my crazy busy Saturday. Today couldn't have been more different!
First... I slept until nearly 9AM. That's nearly unheard of for me. It felt so good, though, after a late-night carpool run that got Molly and me back home around midnight. I figured I would sleep in, but I didn't figure it would be THAT in (of course, the spring forward helped)!
THEN I got to be lazy on the couch until it was time to get the girls ready for their first performance with the North Suburban School of Dance dance company. The girls in the company range in age from 9 to 13, and they have been working on this nine number show since early January. The girls performed in an assisted living center, and they did an amazing job. I love watching my girls dance... each time I get a little teary-eyed remembering the 3-year-old dancers they once were. Molly especially has grown very graceful over the past year. I almost don't recognize her when she's dancing. Abby is more confident in her dancing this year. She smiles more and looks less like a deer in the headlights than this time last year. I'm thankful the Y offers this extra dance opportunity for the girls to go out into the community to perform.
THEN I did some shopping. I hate everything in my closet right now. I'm tired of wearing black and gray and brown and craving some brighter colors and springy pastels. Molly needed a pair of shorts to wear with her costume for the school musical this week, so off to Kohl's I went. They must have been giving away something in that store, because the parking lot was Black Friday-packed, and the lines inside were long! I couldn't believe how crazy it was for a random Sunday in March. Maybe, like me, people are tired of hunkering down at home and avoiding the cold and so used today's mild, sunny weather to do errands they'd been putting off.
When I got home, I took a nap... my favorite Sunday afternoon activity.
Though it seems like a busy Sunday, it really didn't feel like it. The pace was slow, and I was able to take some time to be by myself and just enjoy driving around on a beautiful sunny day. I'm looking forward to more of those sunny Sundays in the future.
Now.... on to Monday!
