I couldn’t help myself

For the first time in 7.5 years I had a night off AT HOME. I have plenty of nights out, but I have never-since the birth of my oldest son-had a night off and got to stay home.  My husband openly admits he enters a full “lock down” when I am gone.  No one comes in, no one goes out.  The boys are getting older and he is beginning to lift his self-inflicted isolation.  Even venturing out with both of them when I am home (gasp!).  Another perk to my boys learning to ski…..night skiing with dad on Thursday night!   “Party rock is in the house tonight!’

What did I do with my time, you ask?  I couldn’t help myself.

First stop, manicure/pedicure.  I totally splurged and treated myself!  Usually I just have them shape and buff my finger nails.  Not tonight.  Check it!

Spring has sprung.  At least on my nails!  Color me happy.

Next stop, take out.  Picked up Pho soup to enjoy at home.

And finally I got to watch Season 1: Episode 1 of Downtown Abbey.  Reminds me of a Jane Austen novel. (Love.) Totally indulgent and worth the chatter.  Can’t wait to watch the next episode.

Can you appreciate my enthusiasm?  If I am granted another night, it most likely will be filled with dishes, laundry, and tidying the house.  Since nothing in life is guaranteed (including nights off), I lived this one to the fullest!
