Today, I have a day to myself… The first in a very long time. The Sitter came back and I went to work for my father-in-law for the day helping him with his local election… (He’s an elected official, and he pretty much does everything for their small, very poor, county’s election… And, everything else the county/city does… He is retiring this year, btw…)
Anyway, I got to sit in the Election Office (aka, the old EMT building, aka the courthouse storage building, aka an old, nearly dilapidated house…) and work on his tally board… Silence and solitude All.Day.Long. Ahhhhh…. It was heavenly. Even if there were dead roaches everywhere.
And, this evening, I have tennis (although, I may duck out…) THEN, a girls’ night. One of my friends is moving away and we are have a going away party/girls’ night at her house. Three things all for ME today… I almost feel guilty. Almost.
After yesterday, I need some time off. Fo sho. The Mister even said last night that he has no freaking clue how I do it some days. Me, neither, really… (Wine, beer, vodka, xanax, you guys… That’s how. Plus, the good days really do faaaar outweigh the bad ones… The bad ones just make good blog fodder.)
I have the kids for like an hour and that’s IT. Wow. Okay, I really think I just convinced myself to seriously skip tennis and start drinking NOW. Get a jump start on the evening… Wait… But, then I’d have to be here at home…
