Today, I Quit

That's right from a little bit past 3pm until a few minutes from now (probably around 5pm est), I quit.
I took a bath.
I listened to the snow fall.
I laid on my bed with something dark over my eyes.
I attempted to turn the brain off.

There are things to do, a week still very much full ahead, a 3 year old to raise, a church to lead, etc, etc, etc...

But for just under 2 blissful hours... I quit.

I cannot wait until a long weekend after Easter when I get to quit on a boat.

Every mom needs time to just quit for a while. You, of all people, deserve some quit time!

Can I quit, too?

Teri said...

awesome!
I sort of did that too, except I watched a movie and read blogs and petted my kitties. Since the movie is *potentially* for the youth event this weekend, I pretended that was work. That's right--I woke up at 10am and did nothing at my house, then went shopping, coming to church at 4.45pm, just in time for the Wednesday evening program. And I called some of it work, and it involved sitting on my couch with a cat (and a box of tissues--the movie turned out to be sad). awesome.

The only thing getting me through lent is knowing I'll be on the boat. See ya there!
BTW do you know where I can buy a clerical one piece swim suit?

Sue said...

Yup. Quitting is good for the soul.

Thank you so much for posting this. I was meandering around the web in a procrastinating way when I came across your blog. You gave me permission to quit for a couple of hours myself - and I feel a lot better for it. So thanks for leading by example - even when you probably didn't feel like you were !

May you have more quit time -- just enough to get you on the boat... whilst I stay on land and moo quietly about not going...

I quit on Friday. Actually I declared that I needed a snow day! And no, I didn't finish the income taxes and no, I didn't start on my sermon. I just had a snow day. It was good.

Looking forward to the seaboard quit. No children saying, "I'm bored. There's nothing good to eat. Can we go shopping?"

Take care of yourself!
