WE DIDN’T!!! Okay, let me clarify before your glide mouse to the upper corner and close my blog out of fear with no intention of returning. We stayed in our jammies ALL day today. No alarms set to wake us up, no appointments to keep, and no goals. Well, one goal – to relax and be bums. We succeeded, for the most part.
Ed watched his favorite college basketball team, the Georgetown Hoyas. Mags and I set my computer up and watched “Alice Upside Down” from YouTube’s free movie list. We laughed and then at the end, cried, cried, and cried. A fabulous movie with Alyson Stoner as the main character, the eleven-year-old girl who’s mother has passed away and she can’t seem to do anything right. Her father is played by Luke Perry (from 90120, sweet!) and her brother is played by Lucas Grabeel. Neither Mary nor I remember the movie in 2007 but it was a fabulous way to spend the afternoon while Ed watched “the game” in the living room.
My mother sent a bag full of chocolate and sinful treats to make our jammy day complete. One of my fondest memories from childhood, the morning my Mom announced, “Jammy Day girls. No fighting, no cleaning (not that we did much), and no work.” It was the best. A family tradition I’m passing along to Mags but with our schedules…I write them on the calendar weeks ahead. Don’t mess with our jammy day or you might see the face from yesterday’s blog photo. Lol
Anyway…Mary is putting the finishing touches on her extra-credit project and I’m going to putter a bit more on some stuff for an upcoming writer’s conference (more in later blogs, promise) and possibly finish reading “1,000 Gifts” so I can return it to my friend for her precious daughter to read. Miss A. has patiently been waiting for Aunt B to finish reading so she can delve into it. My goal was two days ago…uh oh! It’s jammy day…no stress!
See you tomorrow!
And today's musical selection is dedicated to my father! Love you Dad - Mary and I were singing our hearts out to Mr. Hank Williams Jr. in honor of our "Jammy Day", a familyl tradition! Love you Dad!
