My husband kicked me out today and told me to go do something that I wanted to do..... then he posed a very pointed question.....
"Do you know how to do that? I mean, I don't want you to go run errands and do things you need to do, go do something you want to do.". Well I sat down at the kitchen table, looked at my coupons and gift certificates that I had, thought of the things I needed to do:
- pick up a rental violin for my daughter who is starting orchestra
- pick up new jeans for my oldest girl who just seems to keep growing
- get laundry detergent at Target, since none of my grocery stores seem to stock it anymore
- figure out what to make for dinner and pick it up
- go by and pick up printer ink
- oh and pick up popsicles for the sick one
So as I hung out waiting for the new yogurt shop to open up (because that was the thing I was going to do....) I decided to just forget it. I went to Publix, bought a couple of things and took my sushi outside to eat it ALONE.
Now I probably only spent 10 minutes on me, but it was really nice for my husband to offer. I do enjoy running errands, taking care of my family, etc. I honestly wish I could find a hobby, but I like toying around on my computer, and I like taking care of my family, I should probably spend more time with my kids before they aren't kids anymore.......right now they are all on their computers, or ds's or xboxes and really don't want to have anything to do with me.
I think I will be participating in the SPARK Thursdays over at House Honcho. I have bought plenty of books that I would like to do for the kids to read one day. I am also going to start working on a memory jar to give all the grandparents so we can find out about their life. That is my goal for September. We will see how that works out.....
Anyway enough rambling.....I am off to peruse my google reader to check on the blogs I follow :)
