Today I get to take my girls and the doggie over to my mom's house. I will be feted with shrimp fajitas and maybe a glass of wine while the kids eat grilled cheese sandwiches and Mom coos over everyone for awhile. Did I ever mention that I have 2 twin 6-1/2 year old brothers? They adore Sister and she'll be happily out of my hair for the afternoon.
Then tomorrow night, Husband and I have gotten a babysitter to come LATE so that we can go out to a show together. Let me assure you, THIS NEVER HAPPENS, so I'm totally psyched. We're going to see this band at the Cat's Cradle. I may even have a cheap beer while I'm out--the luxury!
On Saturday, I'm going to a day spa, courtesy of 2 gift cards from my stepfather that I'm finally getting to take advantage of. Here's the package that I'm getting:
R E J U V E N A T E & R E N E W Experience the essence of the spa experience — relaxation, rejuvenation, and renewal. We’ve combined some of our most popular treatments into one visit so you can truly have it all. Relax with a stress-reducing Instant Ahh shoulder, neck, and back massage. Then you’re cocooned in a rejuvenating and detoxifying Herbal Body Wrap, where you’re further relaxed with a scalp massage. Finally, refresh your face with a Skin Balancing Facial customized for your skin type. Simply and completely renewing. 125 minutes.Don't you love all those gerunds? I'm also getting a fancy paraffin pedicure after all that. I can't wait! (Squealed in an octave higher than my normal voice.)
And finally, Husband has agreed that he'll work on cleaning up all the crap that's currently cluttering up our bedroom and living room. Boxes of things from his parents' house are still just sitting around and are becoming invisible to him, I think, while they're just annoying me now that he's been back relaxing at home for coming up on 2 weeks. After all that, I'll be like a contented, quivering bowl full of happy jelly. I'm so thrilled.
