Mommy time

  So today I had a Mommy time day planned. I get these about once a month, which I realize is absolutely nothing to complain about, because I know moms who don't get a day to themselves that often. Well, it didn't exactly turn out the way I was planning, but I was without hubby/child, so I guess it counts.

   I needed to go into work for about 1 1/2 hours. No biggie! I could knock that out without it hardly effecting my day at all! Well, that turned into me being there for 3 1/2 hours. And I still have at least an hour's work to do first thing Monday morning. Oh well. As we say around the office...job security.

   After that, I ran a few errands. Had the windows rolled down and the radio blasting. That was nice. But I had to go grocery shopping, which can ruin any wind-blown high that any woman has. Blech. Can you believe I used to love grocery shopping? It seems it's the bane of my existence nowadays.

  To finish off my time alone, I plopped my butt on the couch and watched stupid, mind-numbing TV that I had recorded. Very predictable sitcoms with pretty people and canned laughter that did just what I wanted it to. Let me relax. Made me laugh. It was pretty damn good.

  Then my babies came home and I was so glad to see them. I swear, after just being away from my daughter for 9 hours, she seemed to have grown. When their this age (3 years and a few months old) I think they truly can visibly grow in that expanse of time. They're quite amazing.

  So to wrap it up, I had a good day. Maybe not as awesome as I wanted. I did NO scrapping. I didn't do any catching up with all the online stuff I needed to do. I didn't clean anything (which is good. Hubby always tells me NOT to spend my days cleaning when I have a Mommy day). But it was still time to still my brain. Which every Mom needs now and then!

Thanks for stopping by friends! Love to all,
