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.
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!
