What a Day

Subtitled: How to Have a Kick-Ass Sunday

Sundays are the one day in our house where Hubby doesn’t have to get up and go to work at oh-dark-thirty. Sundays are the days when the girls get sugar cereal or cinnamon toast for breakfast. Sundays are the mellowest days in our house, because most other days are crazier than all get-out, and do not resemble “mellow” in the slightest.

Last night, Hubby and I struck a deal that he would get up with the kids this morning. Rock on! Of course, that meant that they slept in until about 6:45 (they never do that on MY day to get up with them… isn’t that always the way). I hung out in bed, relishing the fact that I was going to get to stay in bed. PAST SEVEN! After I finally rolled out of bed, brushed my teeth, and washed my face I decided to join the world of the living and see my peeps. Hubby worked out in the living room and me and the girls made chocolate chip/M&M cookies (aw yeah, eating cookie dough before 9 a.m. – THAT is a Sunday treat).

About 9:30, my mom started calling to ask if I would bring the kids over to her house to hang out with her today. Why sure. Take my kids. Please. Hubby and I got their winter gear packed up (apparently, they are going to go sledding), put all the cookies we made in a ziplock to take with them (or I will eat them ALL), and Hubby dropped the girls off and took in about two months’ worth of recycling to the recycling center. Meanwhile, I stayed home (alone!) and did my hair, read Post Secret, put some makeup on and rocked out to my iPod (after downloading a weird assortment of music – none of it related to each other – from Phil Collins to Evanescence).

Once Hubby got back, I took off to go to the mall and Hubby took off to take Stepson bowling. At the mall, I found an awesome athletic shoe sale at Kohl’s. My walking shoes have 600+ miles on them – they needed to be retired. I happily found some rockin’ Nikes to take their place. Then onward to Macy’s to sniff some perfumes that Kim recommended – liked the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue that she had suggested.

Then… onward to Hallmark (because I do care enough to send the very best). My mom’s sister-in-law is having open heart surgery on Tuesday, so I wanted to send her a card with get well wishes. I also got several cute cards for my friends, and an obnoxious “Survival Button” for Hubby to keep on his desk during tax season – it plays “I Will Survive” and I know it’s going to drive his coworkers NUTS.

Had a nice latte for lunch, and I meandered on home to hit the treadmill in my brand new sneaks. The boys are sleeping, my daughters are still at grandma and grandpa’s house. Right now, there is nobody who needs anything from me. It’s a good feeling.
