I feel a little guilty

I'm taking the day off school tomorrow.
I get 4 personal days a year, and I never use them unless it's to go on a field trip with one of my kids.

So, I've decided....there are some sales I want to go to tomorrow, and I would like to go to the grocery store, in the middle of the day, without kids. That will be a pleasure for me. Really. I know it's only groceries, but there will be no reason for me to say, "Leave your sister alone." "Stop teasing your brother." "Get over here, I want to go down the next aisle." "I mean it!" Plus, with our schedule this week, and softball practice EVERY NIGHT for someone, there is no time for me to get groceries this week.

I've never gotten to experience a day when my kids were in school, and I was at home, or running errands. My husband had me going back to work as soon as both kids were in school. I've never had the joy of an empty nest in the middle of the day.

I'm feeling a little guilty that I'm going to get to enjoy the day while my co-workers are at school, but I'm trying to get over it.
I'll take some pictures and after ball practice tomorrow night, I'll post them.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, enjoy the sunshine they say is coming.

I'll leave you with a conversation Evan and I had on the way to school today. For some reason it seems like in the 8 minutes it takes us to get to school, we have the strangest conversations.

Evan: I wonder when the new Sonic 4 game will come out.

Me: I don't know babe, I don't know about the game at all.

Evan: I know mom, I was just saying it in my head.

Me: Yeah, but you said it out loud!

Evan: Well, I had to hear myself!

Makes you wonder exactly what was going on in his head.


  1. What a beautiful day to have off!!! I hope you're enjoying it!!!!! No guilty feelings!!! :)

  2. That sounds perfectly logical to me, Evan! Hope your off day was great.


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
