I thought when I quit working that Fridays would lose meaning for me but since I have a wonderful hubby who does the lion’s share of the child rearing on the weekends, I still heart Fridays because it means I can be the fun parent for the weekend and I can take naps and sleep in if my aching hips and kicking fetus will allow it. This weekend won’t involve any sleeping in as my in-laws arrive in a couple of hours for a visit…but it might involve a movie. In a theater. With my husband. And popcorn. Without child (unless you count the parasitic one).
And because I’ve got to bath child and go to the grocery store I will leave you with a meme. Rhonda tagged me a few days ago. I did a similar one a couple of weeks ago but I don’t have anything else to share today so here goes:
Ten years ago…I was working 3 jobs and going to grad school. At some point 10 years ago, I did drop down to just 1 job. I was having a great time 10 years ago. I was out with friends a lot, working, going to the gym, going to school – busy and happy (seriously can I just have 50% of that energy back?). Then I met my ex-husband.
Five things on my to do list today…I already mentioned needing to bathe the child and go to the grocery store. I also need to do a load of laundry, sweep the kitchen (again – I am going to shave the dog bald), and make dinner for my in-laws.
Snacks I enjoy…it might be easier to list snacks I don’t enjoy right now. I always love ice cream and ice cream sandwiches, chips and fresh salsa or guacamole, pita and hummus, I’m obsessed with berries right now (because “everybody likes berries” – right Dave?), and honey nut cheerios. Basically it reads like a list of carby goodness.
Things I would do if I was a millionaire…I would invest a large portion. I would travel a bit. I would set up a charitable foundation to give grants to rural non-profit programs and make it my job to read the proposals and give away the money. That is my dream job. We would buy a modest house and make sure our families had no house payments. College funds for the kids. And I would hire someone to come and clean my damn floors twice a week. This dog hair is driving me crazy.
This has made the rounds I believe so I won’t tag anyone. Happy Friday all!
