Labor day musings

On this Labor Day, we did a whole bunch of things that may not have been defined as a productive day (and why should it? it's a holiday), but tomorrow will be more productive because I helped mom lay the groundwork for it today. We didn't really work today, we didn't sit at the computer or anything like that. Mom is checking some emails now, so she's finally getting to my blog. She knows she has a lot of projects to do, both work and personal, and she tends to stress over tackling them all. Today we made lists to alleviate the stress. But mostly we didn't do today what we'll have to do tomorrow.

I know I'm usually still passed out at 8am snoring and dreaming, and mom may lie in bed with one eye open, but both the left and right parts of her brain are fully functioning. The day starts with such promise, thinking of all the things that are going to get done, going over the list of things she says she's going to do while lying there in bed. She struggles to accomplish so many things during the first few hours after we get out of bed. We may be asleep, but once mom gets up, we're wide awake and ready to help her conquer the day. We make sure she doesn't lose sight of the accomplishments she's set for the day. We can see she may get tired around lunchtime and especially around 2pm, but still the day begs her to start what she has promised herself and us during the morning hours while we're trying to get that last dream in.

We challenge her to really finish all the things she's planned for the week. Most importantly though, to schedule some playtime with us without getting too distracted.

I'm already looking forward to the weekend,
Miles ^..^
