You know the kind of day I'm talking about, the kind of day when you have grand plans to get lots of stuff done because the kids are in school and you have the day off. And then nothing you planned on doing gets done because other things came up.
Things like enjoying a nice lunch with your wife at a restaurant you've never tried before.
Things like taking a nap because early morning seminary has wiped you out (and it's only the second day...I am in so much trouble).
Things like taking the family out to play tennis, then enjoying ice cream cones at a place that might well be the best kept secret in Fairfax.
In the end I did get around to some of the other things I'd planned on, but the fact that I got to spend the bulk of a beautiful late summer day with my wife, just relaxing, was priceless. No better way to spend the day, actually.
