I’ve been ordered by my family to go one week without opening the laptop, starting tomorrow. Thought I’d share a funny moment from this afternoon before I go.

I was sitting at the breakfast table, panting and sweating after mowing our STEEP front yard, when Laney (6) asked if I could play catch with her.

“Aw sweetie, I’d love to, but you know what I just did?”

“You mowed the lawn.”

“And if I juuuust finished mowing the lawn, then I am…what?”
