Mom’s “day off”

laundryI didn’t go to work today. In my world that means I didn’t report to my “official” place of employment but replaced those labor hours with things that desperately needed to be done at home. Anyone else take days like these?

After I dropped Boogy off at school I stopped by Bojangles and picked up two football shaped Bo Berry biscuits and a large Pepsi. Breakfast of Champions… check! I came back to the house where my husband and youngest son were still getting ready. Actually, Aaron was already dressed. He is four and can get completely dressed down to his shoes super quick if he knows there’s a chance he can play Xbox. So I sat down on the couch eating my sugar filled breakfast while Aaron told me all about his current standings with Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Before I was done he had defeated Dr. Doom and was moving on to find Galactus.

Once they left I sat down at the keyboard to practice. One might ask if this falls under the “desperately needs to get done” category. No…not at all. This would be categorized as procrastination Level 10. I’ve already avoided my job and now I’m playing…I mean “practicing” the keyboard. I have learned a little bit though. I can play a few chords from watching this really good YouTube tutorial. If you’re looking to learn how to play worship songs on the guitar or keyboard I’d recommend this guy. It’s under the name Acoustic Selection.

45 minutes later…

Sugar has kicked in and my fingers hurt. Moving on to the laundry. I completed maybe 6-7 loads today. Is there an end to it…ever? My biggest issue concerning laundry around here is towels. Why do boys/men feel like once they have dried off the towel is no longer going to work without being washed again? I wonder what they think the towel bars in the bathroom are for.

I balanced our checking account. That was fun.

I went out and paid a few bills and got myself some lunch. When I got back home I started working on my new organizational tool I downloaded the other day. It’s called MyDresssing app. I have an android phone so it’s the closest thing I could find to the iphone’s Stylebook app. It’s awesome! The app is a virtual closet organizer. You take pictures of everything including your accessories so you can organize all of your outfits. I love it so far! Now I can see exactly what I have and when I go shopping I have a reference guide. My pictures are not that great. I tried to follow the instructions I saw on Pinterest but it didn’t go very well. I’ll post some examples of that soon.

I went grocery shopping and then picked up the kids a little earlier than I would have if I went into the office today. I had time to prepare a real dinner and there was no stressing and rushing around to get it all done. I can’t do it often but I feel so much better at the end of my “days off”.
