Of course...of course...of course!
Of course, my first real day of freedom never happened.
Yesterday, I took both boys to school and Logan seemed fine. So after about 15 minutes I left. Ah, freedom! Finally I get that precious 'me' time! Of course, I went grocery shopping. I followed that up with putting away the groceries, of course, and cleaning the very dirty kitchen. All of this good fun was followed by laundry, of course. And then it was time to pick the boys up.
So, today was supposed to be THE DAY. I had gotten some chores out of the way yesterday so that today could be filled with endless 'me' possibilities.
Today I could exercise.*
Today I could get a pedicure.*
Today I could go shopping for some new clothes.*
Today I could get a haircut.*
Today I could read a book on an outside patio while enjoying a way too expensive drink.
Of course, none of those things happened.
Of course, the boys stayed home sick.
*I haven't done any of these things in years (well, except the haircut which has been more than 9 months). So, have I painted a pretty good visual of what I must look like? Overweight, scraggly-toed, out-of-date clothed, hippy-haired old me!
