Today I spent the entire day preparing for a young house guest - vacuuming up a whole winter of dust, scrubbing, shaking out linens and making lentil soup with kale from the garden.
Did I long to be working on the Highlights Reel? You bet I did. Did I feel pangs of guilt for being so far behind with email, facebook and twitter? Oh YES. All day long I had to keep reminding myself that being a part of this family is the rock of my life, that from time to time I have to put my schedule aside and do what needs to be done. Today was one of those days.
