taking the day off

As I sat staring at my computer screen a little bit ago, Gabe asked me if I was blogging. No, I said, and I don’t feel like it tonight. It feels like a job right now, and I don’t want to do it.

Take a vacation day, he said. An unpaid vacation day.

Don’t mind if I do, I said.

If you’ve got a moment, I would love your prayers. I’m feeling grouchy and depressed and angry and moody (and redundant) for no good reason. And I don’t like it.

Thank you. And thank you, sweet Jesus, for your new-every-morning mercies.

    A day off?

    Well… I don’t know about that, young lady!

    Oh, but since I blog maybe three days a week at the moment, I guess I can’t complain. 🙂

    Rest, recover, we’ll wait as long as you need!

    I wanted to post something cute or catchy or brilliant, but my daughter refuses to sleep through the night so I’ve been a walking zombie for 9 months.

    Let’s hang soon.
