Weekend Promises

I promise to sleep in on Sunday, and urge my sleepy children to do the same.

I promise to watch a lot of sporting events caring little of the score, but the playing in between.

I promise to relax a little, and encourage my family to do the same.

I promise to stay up late on Saturday to watch SNL past the first musical act.

I promise not to think, talk or otherwise engage in politics except for the SNL vow.

I promise to clean out another dresser, although if I don’t get to it, I promise not to be too hard on myself.

I promise to cook something comforting and delicious.

I promise to take one really great picture of one of the kids doing something they enjoy.

I promise to push J-Dog on that bucket swing every time she goes to the door and says, “Go.”

I promise to kiss my husband square on the mouth for no good reason.

I promise to make bacon for Matty on Sunday morning.

I promise to write the next chapter in my novel, even if it’s just on the pages of my mind.

I promise to breathe. Deeply.

Those are some great promises. I hope you keep them!

I want to see pictures of your kids because they are SO CUTE I cannot stand it.

We'll make some bacon over here too. My daughter lists it as her favorite food whenever asked. :-)

I, too, want to see what Tina Fey makes of the debates.

Mmmm...I do adore bacon. But, the most charming thought here is "Go". A child swinging is amazing. Such delight from the most simple motion. We adults could learn a thing or two, eh?
