..."sleeping in" being later than 6:30am.
...taking a mid-morning nap, to wake up just in time to go out to lunch.
...going out to lunch.
...my biggest decision of a Saturday afternoon being the choice between shopping or getting my nails done.
...watching a ballgame in live time, in its entirety...
...not making scrambled eggs every.single.morning. of the world.
...eating popcorn for supper if I wanted to.
...watching meaningless stuff on TV in the middle of the day.
...end tables and lamps.
...reading my last-minute travel deals email alerts with interest, as opposed to disdain.
...my bathtub being a sanctuary, and not a corral for various plastic turtles and assorted neon cups.
...not having to run the dishwasher every day, lest I run out of assorted neon cups.
...not having to share my ice cream.
But if I still had all these things, that would mean I didn't have this...
...or I wouldn't enjoy hearing, "Moooooooommyyyyyyyy!!!" in stereo...
And of course that's worth more than all the naps, manicures, end tables, popcorn, and ice cream in the world, combined.
(But I hope it doesn't make me sound ungrateful if I'm hoping to sneak in a manicure soon...and stop by for some ice cream [alone!] on my way home.)
