I Have a Confession

I'm not a morning person. I hate getting up. In fact, I take awhile to wake up and prefer to lounge in bed, read a book, and just enjoy the morning (for awhile) from my bed.

Growing up my parent's would point out how I "slept the day away" when I got up around 9 or 10 on a Saturday morning. Now that I'm a mom I've always felt a little guilty about sleeping in on Saturday mornings. Once our family got up and moving I look out at our neighbors and see that they have probably been moving since early that morning. I wonder when I'll mature a little more and stop sleeping my Saturday's away. I've thought all that, until today.

It is OK. It is OK I didn't roll out of bed until 8:30/9:00 this morning. Hubby didn't start making pancakes until 9. The kids watched TV from about 7 until breakfast was ready. And, I'm still in my pajamas. Well, maybe the latter is taking this new found realization a little far, but there you go.

The kid's watch next to no TV during the week, so they are making up for it on Saturday morning.

We have many a Saturday where we are up and moving at an early hour. The lazy Saturday's we do enjoy are truly a luxury.

Everyone is up and out the door at early hours every morning, including Sundays. We are a family who will enjoy lazy Saturdays when they come, because they come far and few between.

And with that all said I'm off to take a shower.

Good for you! Your family is hurting nobody by having your "lazy Saturdays." More of us should do the same!

You asked about my strawberry smoothie recipe. In a blender, I add milk, vanilla, and frozen strawberries. Add more fruit as desired. With just the strawberries, it tastes a LOT like homemade strawberry ice cream... :)
