August already! It is quite the crappy day around here so far...RAIN, RAIN and more RAIN this morning. Makes me want to snuggle up in bed with a book and some tea. Taking the garbage out this morning in the rain was something awful, but it is done. I made some yummy banana nut bread this morning and the smell is still lingering around our house. Mmmm! Although, I did not have any since it would be too many points on my Weight Watchers tracker for today! :(
Matthew is on my lap looking at a book right now just relaxing while I type this out one-handed. Jake just woke up now at 10am! Lazy bones! Actually, I am just jealous that I can't do that. He's watching Peter Pan in his bed and refuses to come out yet so I am letting him loaf in there. Alex and Nicholas are playing on their laptop together quietly at the moment, until the timer goes off and it is the other one's turn at the keyboard and then there is sure to be some arguing.
I had plans to do laundry today, scrub the bathrooms, and organize the linen closet, but instead I am thinking today would be better spent lounging around with the kids, reading some stories and reading my own books, playing online while they nap, and just relaxing the day away until I have to work tonight. So, off I go!

When it's rainy and cloudy I'm all about doing nothing. Just curling up on the couch with the kids watching a movie or reading a book.
 
Spending time with the kids is waaaaay more important than cleaning! My mom shared this poem with me to help me remember:

Cleaning and cooking can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up as we've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep,
For I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
