That's right. I've got my Lindt chocoloate truffles, my favorite blankie, and a slew of '30 Rock' episodes waiting for me on Hulu. Tonight's dinner? Mac n' cheese.
Boy, do I feel naughty.
As for my weekly post? I'll catch you next Thursday. Until then, thanks so much for following me. I hope you've had as much fun reading as I've had writing.
Ciao for now!
UPDATE: A lot of advanced planning and work went into ensuring I would get the stress-free 'me' day I so wanted today. That included me writing this post yesterday morning so I wouldn't have to do it today. Since that time, I've received a letter in the mail informing me I never turned in some mandatory dental health form for one of my kids, so now a good portion of my day will be spent downloading the form, running it over to the dentist's office, then sitting and waiting while it's filled out. Plus the folks over there are going to nail me because it's been eight months since my kids' last dental appointment when they should be having them every six months. As if I don't feel like a bad enough mom for the whole didn't-turn-in-the-form thing. Plus the cat just threw up on the rug. That shoots another half an hour.
So if you haven't already guessed, the Lindt truffles I reserved for today are almost gone and it's not even 8:30 AM. We're talking six truffles in a half-hour period. Still, I refuse to calculate how many calories that equals because this is MY day -- MINE! Do you hear me?
Okay, I know as I write this there's an Ethiopian farmer on the other side of the world beating dry, dusty earth with a hoe with the hopes of growing something to feed his family. My life could be worse. Still, is one day too much to ask for?
I'll quite whining now and just stuff my face with another truffle --- See? Even THAT comment smacks of Marie Antionette. Stopping now to count my blessings....
