I don’t know what you Americans are on about with President’s Day but here in the north, we’re getting school and work off because of Family Day.
Thus, even though it is my reading week off from university, I have not made any plans with friends and am spending the day with the fam. But unlike other families that probably have cool things planned and winter activities to get up to we do things a little differently.
The day started by not starting until about 11:30am. Missing breakfast entirely, making the cats anxious about not being fed at their usual 6:30am and being awake but not having to get out of bed. Talk about perfect.
We then had a sorting party of receipts and coupons and laundry and got all that cleaning out of the way in a social and chill manner. My sister was looking over her physics homework at the same time so I got to reminisce about those easy times.
Then we had a super important competition of who could throw smarties up in the air and catch them in their mouth the best. I can think of nothing better than watching my mom whole-heartedly participate in this.
The rest of the day was chill, we watched the movie Babe, some episodes of elementary all the while my sister consumed 2 bags of popcorn and I crocheted a shark pencil case.
It was an amazing day and I just had to share it with yall. Normally it isn’t this stress-free to be around them which is why I’m so enthused!
