I have walked the dog. I have slept in. I have driven my daughter to school without calculating just how many minutes late I am today. I have brought my husband his morning chai, and read books, and prepared well-thought-out handouts for my class. I have gone to several soccer games, and added pages to my book. I have had companionable interludes with my husband - I like him. We went to the mall together last week without any children. Like we were friends or something.
What I have not done is organized my house. The Organizing Fairies have not found my house yet, either. I have not folded all the clean laundry, or blogged about anything.
And I have not missed work one bit.
