Today my sister took my kids for the whole day just so I could have a "free" day to get stuff done. We switch like this every now and then.
I was so excited for my day! Here is what I imagined I'd do:
-get my haircut
-go to the bookstore
-redecorate my house
-take a nap
-deep clean children's rooms
And the list goes on and on... I'm not kidding you, I seriously thought I could accomplish all that in a day.
But in reality, I was so excited and crazed that I was, well, ALONE, that my heart was pounding insanely all day. I felt like I was on speed. I rushed around the house in squirrel mode racing to get everything done. And in the end, here's all I really accomplished:
Yep. That's pretty much it. Mountains and mountains and mountains of laundry. (But at least I got to watch tons of episodes of Sister Wives on Netflix while I folded and folded and folded. I'm seriously hooked on that show.)
What would you want to do with a day off? But what would you probably end up doing?
