I took yesterday off from work, Paul went to daycare, and I spent a day alone. ALONE. I entertained the first hour I was awake, talking to Maureen. Then I watched Gossip Girl, Parenthood, and Private Practice on my DVR. Then I vacuumed. Which doesn't sound that great for a day off, but can I tell you what a simpler task it is to vacuum when no one is home rather than having a small person follow you around trying to turn off your vacuum as you are frantically trying to suck up all the dog hair from your floors? Then I went to yoga. Then I came home and took an extra long shower with NO interruptions. I ran a couple of errands in record time because there was no one to get in and out of the car seat or negotiate/bribe with suckers and candy. Then for the best part of my day I had myself a little facial,
No this is not me. I wished my skin looked like this.
and pedicure. AMAZING.
Although this doesn't sound so bad either,
I came home to my little dude and husband and
then spent the rest of the evening on the couch with them, marinating in
my day off.
I think it was the best pre-baby presents I could have given myself! Happy Friday!
