The girls had to clean their room before ANYTHING ELSE this morning (except breakfast) and I am SO glad to have that out of the way. They did a pretty good job with NO help. OK--I may have offered incentives. I had a new book for Sweetheart and Grandma and Grandpa had a new outfit for Little Bit's doll. The hope of a "surprise" kept them going strong.
So I decided to start with what I was dreading too and updated the checkbook this morning. Now, on to other things.
S mows on Saturdays (and most weeknights too) so we take him lunch on Saturdays and eat with him. It's a nice way to get to spend some time with him.
After that is sewing class.
I need to procure groceries for my family sometime today as well.
I remember a time in our marriage where we went fishing on Saturdays. Or washed the car. Or ran errands together. Or just woke up and said, "What do you want to do today?" Maybe we shopped at the mall. Maybe we just ran around. We were married for 6 years before Sweetheart came along. Saturdays are very different these days.
What can I say? We're 40.
My 20 something year old self didn't do laundry all day on Saturdays. But, I did get bored.
And honestly? I don't remember what that feels like.
