Sunday Surf: Head in blankets

How I want to feel.
Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

I know this is posting super late. For no good reason, I've been feeling pretty ragged the last few days. Well, there's working on taxes, and spending long hours inefficiently running errands with both kids alone, and my computer acting up because it thinks I have too many windows open, but nothing dramatic. I then stayed up till 4 a.m. working on some bloggy stuff and therefore told myself I really needed a day I could just stay in bed with my jammies on and the blankets over my head.

And then I remembered I still hadn't put up Sunday Surf. And I was planning to garden today. And prepare my post for tomorrow, too. And finish up taxes. And spend hours playing with my kids. (That last one actually happened.)

So you know? A couple hours ago, I slipped away upstairs … and pulled the covers over my head. I'm not even apologizing, just proclaiming.

Sometimes you need a day where you never get out of your jammies and do nothing you thought you were going to.

Quick and dirty and belated, some reading for you:



This short film will bring a smile to your face. Take 10 minutes to watch and enjoy when you need a pick-me-up (like on one of those blanket-over-the-head days):

It's so unschooling!
