3 Me Mornings!

Logan is starting school after winter break. He'll be going to the same preschool as Jack and in fact, will be in the same classroom as there is only one. Since the school is a co-op, I'll now be required to work there at least two days a week (since I'll have two kids attending). But what all this really means is:
I'LL HAVE THREE MORNINGS A WEEK ALONE!

Here is my to-do list for my three mornings a week:
  • Catch up on all the sleep I've been deprived for the past 3 3/4 years
  • Become fluent in Mandarin
  • Get in shape
  • Shop for new clothes (preferably after I get in shape)
  • Get my wedding dress cleaned and preserved (as it's been hanging dirty in my closet for 5 1/2 years)
  • Waste time surfing the web
  • Take advantage of all the farmer's markets that my city has to offer
  • Go to the bathroom without anyone else in the room with me
  • Read a good book
  • Buy new makeup (something I haven't done for at least 2 years...yuck!)
  • Clean and organize all the catch-all drawers and cabinets around the house (of which there are about 147)
  • Get a haircut
  • Drink tea at a sidewalk cafe while soaking up the sun

In reality, I'll:
  • Buy groceries and put them away
  • Do several loads of laundry
  • Get a haircut (well, it has been 9 months or more)
  • Run random boring errands
  • Clean the kitchen
  • Miss my boys terribly and count the minutes until I can pick them up from school

  1. Love the first list and as I was reading it I thought...in reality...she will blog. That is what I do Stunt Man is in school two days a week. LOL
    Best of luck with the first list. It is no fun grocery shopping when it is supposed to be "Me" time. HUH? I totally am in the same boat:)

  2. Oh how I cherished those Me mornings when my kids were in preschool! I love your first list but alas, I followed list two also. But hey, it's much easier to go shopping without the assistance of short people.

  5. Shosh,
    I have to say that I love, love, love my kids' co-op nursery school. I know all the kids really well. I know every mom and sibling of the kids who go there and nearly every dad. It has such a community feeling which is saying a lot because we live in a huge city.
    We do pay tuition but the cost is about 1/3 the average cost of a preschool in our very expensive city. It's so cheap because we only have one paid employee (our director) and don't pay any rent because we are housed in part of our local rec center. However, the parents have a lot of responsibilities to make up for the cheap fees (but that's part of the fun). Feel free to email me if you have any other questions.

Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
Thanks!
