I took today off.
For most of you, that means you stayed home from work, right? But since I am 95% Stay At Home Mom and 5% Freelance Writer Who Works in the Living Room, home is not a place to relax. It is a place to look around and fret about all the stuff I have not yet accomplished. So, today, I zigged when I would have zagged. I went to the Mall.
Yeah, ME. Christine. I actually did. Had a great time, too.
--Nice, long drive both ways. I love driving.
--I smelled everything in Yankee Candle, and bought one.
--I had a long conversation with the woman at Victoria's Secret. What is it about those women? They love to talk. And I bought some stuff. Ooh, baby.
--Unfortunately, I also got waxed. Which normally would be no big deal, or even pretty cool, from a New Lingerie perspective. But today I am covered in bruises. Who knew? So, you know, a little bit less "ooh, baby" than I might have been.
TMI Update: For those who asked, I am bruised because next week is The Most Wonderful Time of the Month. Apparently, that is not a good time to have a bikini waxing done, because, well, duh, you are full of blood down there.
--I took my external flash in for repair, with just 6 days to spare on the warrantee. Hubby's record keeping ROCKS!
--Had a long conversation with the woman selling Dead Sea Salt beauty products, while she exfoliated my hands. That stuff is awesome.
--Sat in a midrange restaurant and picked at a delicious salad while chugging iced tea and not telling boys to get their elbows off the table. Ahhh....thinking entire thoughts, to conclusion, and no one there to ask for my croutons.
--I roamed a couple of department stores, just for fun. Didn't have to buy anything, didn't have to round up the kids.
All in all, it was AWESOME.
I think maybe I will do that one again.
