It's not like I don't know how to have fun. Some years are big party years in our house. This year just isn't one of them. I'm the family member who has to organize a celebration if it's to occur, and for whatever reason, I wasn't in the mood to throw a 4th of July barbecue this summer. Nobody else felt like it either, so a quiet day at home was spent by all. We hung out in our pajamas, watching movies and snacking.
At one point we wandered out to the driveway and shot off a bunch of noisemakers that my husband had picked up a week ago when we thought we might have the energy to clean the house and invite people over. Turns out we didn't even have the energy to get out of bed and go to church.
We may not have shown it this year,
but we're glad to live in the U S of A.
Happy belated Fourth of July!
Dinner last night: sandwiches, chips
