A perfect day. I’m either more ambivalent than most moms or just more honest. I’ll admit it’s pretty heavenly being ALONE all day today. Matt is in India and the children are in Vermont and I’m just myself for the first time in I don’t know how long. Nobody needs me. I can do whatever I want. My perfect day started with waking up at 9am, going for a long run, and then lingering over a latte with the New York Times. I did a little shopping and then came home to make chicken pot pies for Brooke and Lisa.
I got to hold baby Hadley while she slept while dropping off one pot pie in Beacon Hill chez Laughlin. 3 weeks and just plain delicious … I don’t want another one but they’re pretty dreamy to hold onto! And then I got to see Lisa and her four (!) children while dropping off their dinner in Wellesley. Their new house is just perfect and makes me want a brand new construction house of my very own.
Since 5 I’ve been at home, just hanging out by myself! I’ve cleaned out my closet, done two loads of laundry, watched some of Lost season 2, and done a bunch of paperwork. I spoke to Gracie who reported a fantastic day in Vermont picking apples and playing in the fields (see photo).
And now I get to sit on the couch and watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters! Life is pretty good!
