Today was the first day of parents day out. Holla! That’s right, today was the first day in six years that I did not have children with me. Parents day out is every Thursday for the next six weeks. Originally, I justified it because I thought I could get so much work done if I had one day a week all to myself. That was a great idea . . . in theory.
However, when I was actually presented with a day all to myself, these are a few of the productive things I got accomplished:
** I got a spa pedicure! Woo hoo! I didn’t even have an appointment, but luckily they’re not that busy at 10 a.m. on a Thursday, so they got me right in.
** I went shopping. I went to the mall to get one pair of shorts. Except, I had a coupon. If I spent $150, I got $60 off. Dude! That’s a good deal. So I bought two pairs of shorts, three tops and five pairs of panties. Woo hoo!
** I had lunch with a friend . . . with no kids. That one was a first!
** I went shopping for chic head bands.
After all of that, I just had time to drop all my purchases off at home before picking up the kids. I think since it was my first day of freedom, I went a little crazy with excitement. Next week, I’ll stay home and work. Seriously.
