Tomorrow might feel like a vacation

I spent last night at Mom and Dad's. Mom is in a walking cast from her recent foot surgery, Dad is out of town, I wanted to be there to help her out with the dogs and whatnot.

I was up at 9:00 am, which is a really glorious sleep for me.

I fed the dogs.

I fixed us Zucchini Breakfast Casserole (with a recipe I found at Simply Recipes).

We ate. Read the newspaper and drank coffee.

At 10:40, we packed the dogs up in my car and went on another adventure to the dog park. Lucy and Wolf met us there. The dogs were wild and happy. Mom ran into two people she knew. And also got peed on by some random dog.

We left to go back home at noon.

At 12:30, I learned that Heather and her sisters were working on cleaning up her dad's house.

I offered to help.

But first, I needed to make (boxed) brownies to bring with me.

I got to the house at 1:30. I cleaned, the kitchen and The Most Disgustingly Dirty Light Fixture In The History of the World, until 4:00.

When I got back to Mom and Dad's house at 4:15, I had my rather late lunch. Packed up my things. Got ready for soccer. Helped Dad (who had since returned home) fix something in the garage. Well, sort of. I held things and he did the fixing.

I left for soccer at 5:00.

Played soccer from 6:00-8:00.

Went to the grocery store.

Unpacked my groceries, my soccer bag and my overnight bag.

Made a mango smoothie.

Paid bills.

Took a shower.

And now I'm blogging.

I wonder if there will be a time when I miss having days like today. Days that are packed so full that I barely have time to sit down.

I wonder if there will be a time when I allow myself not to have days like today. Days where I'm so precisely focused on helping others - the dogs, my mom, Heather and her siblings - that I don't even feel the fatigue.
