71 Days

What I did during my summer vacation…

Day 54 or 55 – I’ve lost track a little…

but today was still excellent because it was my birthday. I haven’t washed a dish or a load of clothes all day. And despite the knowledge that there is a small pile in front of the washing machine which apparently is invisible to everyone in my family, I’m not washing any clothes before the day is over. Really, I’m not, and I’m going to remember that my family’s strengths may not be in seeing the dirt, laundry or other things begging to be cleaned like I do. It’s not a moral weakness, and I’m going to celebrate their strengths and willingness to make this day special, starting with coffee in the morning (thanks Jeff), a yummy bowl of salsa to take to my parents’ house for lunch (thanks Katie – who’s mastered salsa), and even a super t-shirt gift from Jake (in the right size even!).

I have a super family including my parents who fed us all wonderfully with fried catfish, cole slaw and even delicious chocolate cake for dessert! Life is good, and 45 is wonderful.
