Days At Home

My dog always has a look of, "what are they doing to me now??!!?" on his face in pictures!


I needed one day, just one simple day where we had zero things to do. Now, that has turned into two days at home. I was up by 7 a.m. anxiously awaiting the rest of my troop to make their appearances. Two and a half hours and two cups of coffee later, they woke up, laid on the couch, and said they'd rather do schoolwork than leave home. I get it, we've had an intense weekend, so I agreed to another day of rest around the house.

There was movie watching, Duolingo playing, reading new books, taking a walk, and overall keeping everything low key. I didn't realize how needed it was until this evening, when I felt overall rejuvenated by speaking with friends on the phone. I wouldn't have been able to do that twenty four hours ago. We all clearly needed those two days to decompress and get us ready to head into the new year.
