It’s not all work and no play. Mary Poppins had it right; have some fun while you’re doing a chore! I think I’ll put my spoonful of sugar in some coffee.
This weekend I’m taking some down time. Yes, last weekend we had a mini-vacation, but as we all know you frequently need a vacation from a vacation. And after a rough week filled with bad weather, being stuck at work for hours, and then going to a movie and being crowded out at the theater last night by Justin Bieber fans of the 10-15 year-old female variety, I’m ready for some do-nothing-at-all time.
Granted, I’m a grown-up. Do-nothing-at-all time will include some “do laundry” time and some “do dishes” time. There’s no rule I can’t jam to some great music while I do so. (Note: my idea of great music? A little Phantom of the Opera, smooth crooners, acoustic versions of classic Christian hymns, or some sweet indie pop. Hello, Feist! Nice to see you, Gomez! Where ya’ been, Sinatra? Good times, Franny Crosby! Don’t be a stranger, Mr. Lloyd-Weber!)
I might even put down the laundry and go to see The Frist. I hear it’s free this weekend! If you live in Nashville, take advantage of this opportunity!
