Wait? I’m the Mama of two, it’s three weeks before Christmas, I’ve started (and stopped) a bathroom reno, and am trying to invent a cure for snoring. There is no such thing as a “Me Day” is there? Okay, so we scrapped that idea, and as a family decided it was time to declare a “We are going to do nothing day” Perhaps we can thank the uber catchy “Today I don’t feel like doing anything, I just want to stay in my bed” la la la song. So how does THAT day go?
Managed to sleep in until 9am. (might be because I had a complete temper tantrum at 2am, grabbed my blanket and pillow “Linus style”, dragged it stomping feet and all down the hall to the spare room. My Husbands snoring is making me CRAZY!) Deep breath.
Watched some quality HGTV and dreamed about the possibility of flipping a house. Oh, but then I looked at the bathroom reno Hubby and I have started and pretty much agreed not to talk about for a couple of days cause it is a DISASTER. Can someone send me an interior designer please? I can’t even believe I’m going to show you these…Yuck.
Encouraged the kids to go play some more games on the Wii. You know, because I am such a good Mama and wanted to get them out of my hair and for some reason today they WON’T STOP TALKING.
Went out and grabbed some muffins and fun coffee’s from McCafe. They really are bringing back the break! My fave, the Latte with the freshly ground espresso and a shot of vanilla. Hubby is more of a Mocha Man, uh, might be the chocolate syrup and whipped cream? Of course for my girls, it’s the Deluxe Hot Chocolates all the way. Yum.
Stole some true Me time and checked out Facebook, said hello on Twitter and even wrote a blog post! Social Media addiction fed, I could move on.
Flipped through some travel magazines and marvelled at all the places in the world I will never see.
Compared myself to Old Mother Hubbard, nothing in the cupboard for supper. Why didn’t I pick up a couple of things when I went out for McCoffee? Oh right. Me Day.
Started to nag about homework and piano then remembered I was not going to do that today.
Laughed very hard at Hubby getting frustrated and spazzy that he “just can’t get past that level of Wii Star Wars Lego”.
Ignored the laundry, the dishes, the floors and the groceries.
Decided on take-out for dinner and a rented movie for night time entertainment.
Verdict. Truly thankful we slowed down, if only for a day. I have a feeling it might be next year before we can do it again
