It is entirely possible that I did nothing today. I mean nothing. It is probably the saddest Saturday ever, and not the one you dreamed of when you were 12 years old and hoping to someday be a grownup. On the other hand, it was altogether pleasant.
The family and I hung around the house. The Boy finally got to celebrate his birthday with his two best buds. The Husband took them to drive go-carts and basically be men. They had a great time, and we discovered that The Boy drives like a 90 year old woman.
My mother-in-law and I hung out for a little while. She was reading through my books for school. She's a sweetheart and read the first chapter out loud to me. Seriously. The lady is about as sweet as it can get.
Of course, after all this long day of nothingness, the sun has gone down, and I am wondering if it was wise to squander 24 hours. Of course, my reflective mood could be that the husband forced me to watch The Big Lebowski. It's true I've never seen the movie until tonight, and I actually enjoyed it -- which is probably why it took me so long to get to writing this.
Maybe on a day like today it would be best to skip the whole 500 day thing. I mena, it isn't like I have anything really profound to say. I spent the day with my husband and kids, and my mother-in-law. The cats wanted to come in and then go out and then came in again. It was pretty much an ordinary Saturday.
I wonder what the Dude would say about all of this. Acutally, I've got a pretty good idea what he would say, but he uses words I don't say, and most definitely won't write.
Listen, if this is boring you, you don't have to read it. I mean, I've got other enteries you might find exciting. Heck, tomorrow is the Super Bowl, which means the odds of me telling you something about my feelings on football are bound to come up in tomrrow's edition. Still, I appreciate you stick around for the slow, nothing days. Life is filled up with them, too. And I guess, in the grand scheme of things, no 24 hours is ever really wasted -- especially if you can spend those 24 hours with people you love.
