A Wasted Day is Sometimes the Best Day

The plan was to work on my closet yesterday but the reality was a day spent with the Mare Bear.  And really, how can I complain about that?  Shannon and Quinn went to school, Sully went to hang out with his uncle, while the husband, Maren and I went out to breakfast.  By the time we were done it was time to pick Quinn up from school and then the afternoon just seemed to fly by.  I fed Maren, burped Maren, fed Maren again, let her sleep on my leg (her favorite position) and then whenever I'd try to  move her to the floor she'd wake up and start fussing.  Now, I'm not opposed to letting a baby fuss a little, but what better excuse is there to not work on the closet than to say that I had to take care of the baby?  And so, that is what I did and it was great.

I'm determined to get a little more done today though.  There's the closet, some clothes to return, mail to sort through and I'm hoping to make a new recipe for dinner and write a meal plan for next week.  Ambitious much?  Right now I'm home with Sully and Maren while the husband takes Shannon to swimming and Quinn to ballet.  Once he's home I won't really have any  more excuses to not tackle the closet.  Except that the closet is in the bedroom and the bed is in the bedroom and oh how tempting it will be to just lie down and take a nap.  Maren isn't even close to sleeping through the night and last night was no exception.  In fact, she was up more last night than normal and so I might just be more tired this morning than normal but then again, I'm not quite sure that's possible.
