Happy Memorial Day my fabulously graceless friends!
Please do take a moment to reflect on this holiday and those who gave their ALL so that we can enjoy a day off. That’s the point of Memorial Day to reflect on the sacrifices given for our freedom and then ENJOY the freedoms we do have.
I Always thank my veterans and also with extra emphasis on their special holiday in November, Veterans Day!
Being lazy has it’s perks though. We set low expectations for fun so when something great happens like the Transformer on sale at Walmart & new Scooby Doo movie on HBO we haven’t seen (score!) it’s that much sweeter!
So my boy and I discussed why we have this holiday (aka a no school day yes for him but he got schooled on the reason!) and then made a pizza, cooked together, cleaned up and plan to just enjoy each other’s company today.
There were “plans” to go to the pool, the zoo, try to find fireworks but in 5 minutes of discussing it we had a new plan that has worked out nicely for us both!
We had also planned to be driveway artist (sidewalk chalk and paint) but the rain kept us in. Hence why Scooby Doo movie on HBO was a score! Fortunately the boy is go with the flow for the most part. With me as his mama, he has little choice!
We cook, clean up, watch Ninja Turtles (ok here is where I get to write but we are in the same room together so it counts in my book!), eat, bath, dinner and a new movie together later. So exciting I know right?!
My OCD will have me doing more than that I “planned” for sure since I can’t seem to keep up with my own demands!
Since we went into Wally world, and yes I did it of free will with a 4 1/2 year old that I had told he could get a toy (“mommy did we win the lottery?” yes he really asked me this bless him!), I grabbed a cheese pizza and we came home and “made our own pizza”. We also scored popsicle makers on the clearance isle and should have some “interesting” mixes of popsicle’s!
This is my kind of lazy day! Now if only I had a maid, butler and chef! I could really be lazy!
As it stands I have to go get us ready for tomorrow back to the grind! Then I can semi get back to my lazy afternoon/evening!
Enjoy this fabulous day!
