Holiday Mixup

I’m having an odd experience this morning. By reading the calendar and the paper, and the many inspiring blog posts all over, I know it is Memorial Day. However it is feeling more like Mother’s Day here. Why?

Well, first of all, I slept in till 8:30. EIGHT thirty. Hubby finangled the litle girls out of our bed as soon as they woke up, and did not allow them to return to me. Ah, the bliss.

When I finally came out the the living room, yawning and rumpled, hubby had my coffee made (OK, that is a daily occurrence here, but it never fails to make me feel loved.) For the last hour the big kids have slept, the little kids have watched PBS, and I’ve been blissfully sipping coffee and visiting blogs.

At this moment, there is a clattering as kids set the table, and a sizzling in the kitchen as my hubby prepares a variety of breakfast concoctions that seem to involve eggs, potatoes, ham and cheese. He’s just sent a child outside with a scissors to snip him some chives as the finishing touch on his gourmet effort.

So, you can see why, despite the calendar, it feels a bit like Mother’s Day around here. I’m off to enjoy my family. Have a wonderful day, y’all!
