It is the calm after the bustle of a holiday. At least, it is for us. We are decidedly not Black Friday shoppers.
We had a busy day yesterday, first with my family, then with Jeramy’s. We ate 2 Thanksgiving dinners, and almost burst at the seams. We caught up with those we only see a few times a year, counted our blessings, told stories, relaxed, and laughed. It was a good day. At the end, Simon crashed hard in his crib and Jeramy and I flopped onto the couch, digesting and exhausted.
Today, we did a whole lot of nothing. Well, nothing that we didn’t want to do, anyway. Simon built a huge tunnel in the kitchen with chairs and boxes, and attacked monsters with a flashlight and light saber. Jeramy spent a few hours target shooting with a friend and washed the dishes. I drank cappuccino and cleaned Simon’s room. There was also plenty of snuggling, eating of leftovers, playing, and chatting. It was a day off, with no plan, and we took our time, letting ourselves do what we felt like doing.
I much prefer this way to spend the day after Thanksgiving.
