We could have hopped in the car and drove to Boston!
This sunday, we didn't use 9 hours to do any of that.
Instead, we stayed in our jammies, didn't answer the phone, didn't answer the door. Sean, Jonah and I got under the blankets and we played this game - Super Mario Galaxy - for the very first time. Needless to say, we LOVED it! Jonah thought it was so much fun to stay in our jammies and just play the game. We all took turns and laughed the whole day. We play for 9 hours!
So yes, the laundry is still piled up and yes some things should be cleaned up, but those 9 hours of laughter, smiles, giggles and family fun time was just not worth giving up.
