Dear Kid,

I have a cold. Nothing serious, just a summer cold. 

I’m vacillating between bursts of energy and wanting to curl up in a ball and sleep.

So I’ve decided to give myself a mini-vacation day. We went out to brunch this morning with Auntie C and Uncle D. Yum, yum, yum for the mango french toast!!!

Then I did some weeding. And now I am going to watch NCIS rereuns and take a nap.

Ambitious, no?

Sometimes we have to gift ourselves a little bit of time.

Love, Mom
