The Best Laid Plans – The Shrinking Jeans of Nancy


April 29, 2011 By Nancy

I took a personal day off today from work. It was totally selfish and I admit that.

My husband is on a golf trip and my daughter is at a conference. Nobody but little old me at the house for about 36 hours. That just never happens and I couldn’t pass it up. I had to take the day off and relish in the house to myself.

I got up at the crack of dawn to watch the royal wedding. I was a little disappointed. Kate looked pretty, but I was expecting a little more. Her hair looked like she was going shopping. Once that was done, I got busy. Or at least I had planned to get busy.

I wanted to clean house really well. Don’t I know how to have a great day off? I haven’t actually cleaned anything yet though. I’ve sorted, I’ve rearranged cabinets and drawers, I cleaned the fridge and took out the garbage. I cleaned out my purse. I paid some bills. I wrote a post I have due tomorrow. I read other peoples blogs. I read April’s new post here and loved it. But, I have not cleaned my house one little bit.

One thing I did that was productive is I worked out. I got on the treadmill while I watched part of the wedding. I did a little wii zumba and some weights. I guess if I don’t get anything cleaned, at least I did that.

So, now it’s 1:30 and my husband will be leaving for home in an hour or so. It’s a five hour trip. I guess it’s do or die now. I’m thinking that maybe I’ll just hit the shower and go get some grocery I’m pretty sure he’ll want to eat when he gets home.

I would have been better off not planning anything. Then I would have felt like I got a lot accomplished. Have a great weekend. The sun is finally out here.
