An Almost Perfect Day Off

I woke up too early, but I can't complain too much. I HAD to take the kids to school... the state tends to frown upon NOT taking your kids to school. After dropping them off I made my way back home, snuggled into my favorite chair, popped my feet up and wrote for a good portion of the morning. Hubby slept in while I caught up with my work. Such a quiet and blissfully productive day. Eventually it was time to pick up the kids and hubby FINALLY rolled out of bed, though I didn't mind because I was productive remember. We drove over and sat waiting for the kids to appear from their "incredibly boring day" and brought them home, sending myself out like a madwoman to try and make it to my tax lady in under 10 minutes.

In the "olden" days we used to be able to drive from one end of our city to the other in under ten minutes. Now, simply going 3-4 miles is mind numbing. Due to either my masterful driving skills or the fact less people got in my way I made it with a minute to spare. Oh yeah!!!! Life is good. Meeting with the tax lady went well and after I fax over the mound of paperwork I forgot she should be able to get underway.

I returned home to find my formerly quiet haven has now become a madhouse of kids and hubby running all throughout the house screaming, laughing and our general carryings on. The rest of the night was blissful and somewhat quiet. I caught up with an old friend IM'ing across space and time through the web.

And now...it has begun. TUESDAY...My tuesday is your monday. Ugh! The thought of going back to work is not my most exciting moment. The store is taking her last breaths these days as we are planning on closing in the next couple weeks. it will be sad to see her go, but it is time. I will also spend much of the day praying the young men who came in to view the property will come back with an offer. Now THAT would make my day go sooo much better.

Sounds like a wonderful, relaxing day. You needed it.

My husband's family owned a hardware store for nearly 100 years. When the store started, it was a rural town. When his Dad finally had to shut down the relic in 1988, it was hard. That place was a landmark but all things change. Good luck to you.

I'll be keeping you guys in my prayers. Hope the right people turn up real soon and buy the place.
Tuesdays are my Mondays too. How about that?
