David had to stay late at work today. It doesn't happen often, so I don't complain. But it sure does make a long day for a mother. A mother's work day is so much longer than the father's. David drives about 30 minute each way to work. How I would love to have one waking hour of meditation a day.

I got a phone call from a high school friend today. I hadn't talked to her in over a year. My children love to take advantage of the fact that I am on the phone. Today Emily asked me for a glass of milk while I was gabbing and I granted her permission to stir in the chocolate syrup after I poured the milk. While still on the phone, I walked into the kitchen and the kids were massaging chocolate syrup all over the kitchen table. It's no wonder why I don't clothe my children most days. Less laundry makes for a happier mother.
