What if......?

What IF today I just relaxed?

What IF today I let go of all my expectations and greeted each moment as a surprise?

What IF I don't try to clean the house (which is a losing battle)?

What IF I let myself enjoy the small moments and let the schedule go to heck?

Will I implode? Will the world stop? Will everything I know and believe turn to dust?

Or will all be well?

Today I went to CVS for a few small items and saw the Crayola aisle. A lot of things were 50% off. So, I grabbed some! Things we cannot usually stick in the budget, like Blendy Pens and Pip Squeeks and Crayola Color Surge coloring systems. The boys dove into them. The past 30 minutes have been artistic bliss. The school schedule is abandoned for the moment.

Don't remember how my identity shows up on here - but it's me, Judy ;) aka Onduli - I haven't blogged in oh so long!

There is nothing wrong with giving it a rest for a while and just going with the flow.

Thanks, all!
Chris, that was the quote I was thinking of when I wrote it, but I forgot who it was from. So, thanks :)
