I loved today.
For one, I had the house to myself! ….Ahhh….
For two, my piddle and play time were equal. Let me explain. For every little thing I did, I got equal play time.
I was on the elliptical by 6am, and had the kids out the door with no arguments by 7:15am. That deserved a big reward. A cup of coffee and my usual, awesome breakfast of oatmeal, a banana, and yogurt while checking emails and reading blogs.
I didn’t really have a plan for today, but suddenly I felt like baking. (Surprised, aren’t ya). Instead of cupcakes, though, I baked two types of cornbread (savory and sweet). Both are new recipes and incredibly tasty. Afterwards, I needed a break, so I played my favorite computer game, Word Racer. Then I put in a few loads of laundry and sat down to read “After Ann”. (Awesome book by the way) Then I did some toning exercises, followed by lunch and more reading.
What to do next… Well, my cornbread needed a meal to go with them. So I cooked up 4 pounds of ground beef – half for chili, half for sloppy joes. Whew. That deserved a soak in the tub.
After I was cleaned up, I cleaned up my cooking mess, loaded the dishwasher, and played more Word Racer!
Can it get any better than that?
The entire day I had Pandora playing in the background. How could I not be in a great mood with ALL my favorite songs playing? I love that I can plug in Nora Jones, Adele, Christina Perri, and Sara Maclachlan and it knows exactly what I want to hear. It even plays songs I didn’t know I wanted to hear.
Finally, I was scheduled to bowl tonight, and most times I would try to find someone else to bowl, but weirdly enough, I didn’t dread going tonight. Although when I started my first game, I wished I hadn’t gone. But I made an adjustment, and started throwing strikes, and the rest of the night was fun! I almost felt like the old me – bowling well and feeling competitive.
And now, I have my ice cream, my laptop and House Hunters on TV. The perfect end to a perfect day!
