This morning I made myself tea. My delicious and gourmet Davids Tea.
I sat down on the couch with a magazine in one hand and my steaming cup in the other.
I read that magazine.
My kid and my husband fought over what to have for breakfast. He won by the way. Then she threw a tantrum and he told her to sit in the time out corner. She didn’t She ran up the stairs, making a big show of it, and went into her room. Her very own act of defiance. He followed her up in a huff and closed the door to her room. She freaked out because the door was closed. He came down and cooled off. She calmed down after a while. He went up and she apologized. They came downstairs.
Then a fight erupted over the laundry he was folding. Honestly, I stopped paying attention. I was trying really hard not to pay attention. I sat there and read that magazine. I don’t know what it was about, but I read it. From front to end.
