Kid Free

This week all three kids are going to be in summer camp. I’m trying to play it cool around the kids, but I’m disproportionately happy about it. I have quite a few errands to catch up on, and lots of housecleaning that I’ve been putting off for a while. It’s so hard to feel motivated to clean when summer is here and the kids are home.

Yesterday was my first day with a few free hours to myself. I try to maximize my time to allow for maximum kid free enjoyment. In a perfect world I would find myself reading in the sunshine with a glass of iced tea. Instead I found myself at the public library, surrounded by four senior citizens, with a pound of sliced turkey in my handbag.

Don’t ask me to explain that one. I really can’t. Today I spent a little time at Anthropologie, which is my happy place. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel so happy after I made my (much less than I really wanted to buy) purchase. That happy feeling left when I realized I didn’t account for it in my new Dave Ramsey budget. I hate Dave Ramsey.

Tomorrow I’m off to get my hair done. Because, lest you be fooled, I am not a true blonde. It’s a glamorous life folks, and someone’s got to live it.
