I had grandiose plans for today. The boys are at their grandmother’s every Friday so that I can have an uninterrupted day of work. It’s wonderful and those days are 99.9% reserved for my passion, MilitaryAvenue. I had a whole to-do list of things I wanted to take care of.
However at 11am, this little bug in my ear kept saying “You need groceries!” (or was it my stomach?) I tried to ignore the bug but thoughts of strolling through the aisles without children running, fighting, grabbing, whining, wanting … the list goes on… were followed with the thought “Wow, that would be great!” So at 11:30 my grocery-list was in hand and out the door I went. Yes, it was as great as I thought it was going to be! What an ‘un-fun’ way of spending $150 though. Sigh…
My husband had also sent me via email a list of things he ‘needed’ which was going to complete my ‘box’ to him so I picked those up; came home and sealed the box; and then I headed to the post office. (By the way, did you know they offer a military discount for mailing to APO / FPO? “Postal Service offers first-time military discount“)
So somehow I killed four hours today … at least it was a ‘productive’ four hours… just not in my original plan.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
