An early morning phone call for most people would bring concern. For me the call brought delight. Today, we had our fourth day off in three weeks. To make it even more relaxing, this weekend we have Friday and Monday off for our mid-winter break. I can almost feel my blood pressure subsiding as I take the time to do things I’ve put off.
I admit to regretting not having my students make their Valentine’s card holders earlier, but we’ll get it done.
I had a delightful day of making soup stock, cleaning the fridge and the joy of listening to some of our son's sermons on line. I even squeezed in a trip to work to set up a new system for my small reading groups. I had the time to call the endodontist and pay a bill--before it was even sent! I even had time to smile at the parents grumbling on Facebook about our school cancellation.
I didn’t take time, or courage to comment on that!
