Nana, do you know what Monday is?
This was the first thing Kenz asked when I picked her up from Montessori on Friday.
Before I had a chance to answer, she blurted out, Nana, it's Labors day!
Yes Nana, it's a holiday when people don't work and I don't go to school. It's Labors day!
Labors. It sounds so cute. I hope, at least for this year, she won't stand corrected.
In celebration of Labors Day, I am doing no labor. I didn't even make my bed, which for me is a big departure from the norm. I am not cooking (not that I do too much of that sort of labor) and I am not child caring. Unfortunately, today Kenz and her mom are sick with something upper respiratory. ( I visited to read a story, but they are better off resting, so I left them to commiserate together.) The new baby is not born yet, any day now.
Today, I am doing nothing in the work category. It's not like me to not be doing something that produces something as a result, i.e. laundry=clean clothes, vacuuming=clean rug, wiping off surfaces=less germs, Swiftering= less dog hair. (Oops, forgot, I did Swifter my daughter's house. I'm on automatic when it comes to the cloths which collect dog hair.)
As a matter of fact, after I finish this post, I will go back to my couch, to my book and to the Weather Channel. I might even fall asleep.
Tomorrow may we all be rested people because today was Labors Day.
