Grandpa is taking the kids out to see the movie Gnomio and Juliet. He wanted to take them last week after school one day but I had to put my foot down. As nice as the quiet would've been I would've been paying for it after with a rushed dinner, showers and homework. So not worth it. My kids know how to get him to spoil them too. He'll be treating them to popcorn and soda. I try to limit soda in the house and my popcorn is the lite version. They will be in heaven.
There are so many things I could do with these few hours but I'm going to keep it simple. I just had a nice, relaxing soak in the tub while reading Kate White's "Hush". I put on clean pjs and I'm relaxing here at the computer. I have a bottle of water and a plate of nice red, juicy strawberries at my disposal. the news is on low so I can listen to anything that catches my interest. I'm blocking out all the war and violent stuff. It just depresses me and I chose not to hear it right now.
In a bit I'll make myself a light lunch, meal plan for the rest of the week since the last two days were too hectic and maybe (just maybe) start laundry and do the dishes. I could pass on both items but I'm all out of comfy pants and I hate looking at dirty dishes (since my dishwasher has been broke for almost 2 yrs).
But for now, I'm just going to kick back and relax. A nap, while tempting, isn't on the agenda because I want to be awake to enjoy the serenity of it all.
Jealous, aren't you?!
