My kids get out of school next week. Since I have off two days a week (Weds. and Fri.) and they have half days the next two Fridays, I am counting the days left when I have the house to myself. As of this morning, it was two. As of 10:30 this morning, it was down to one. There was a campus wide power failure at their school and they were sent home early. I as not happy at first - not that I don't love my kids, I just also love my time to myself. But then I decided I couldn't do anything other than go with the flow and make the best of it. I was still able to run a few errands with the 13 yo DD babysitting and then got the laundry done, a bit of the cleaning and finished getting my garden in with my 7yo DD. All in all, not everything I needed to get done today but not a bad day anyway. After dinner I went to Bath and Body to take advantage of their semi-annual sale. I was able to get shower gels as teacher gifts for $3.00 each instead of paying the full price of $9.00 or more. I also stocked up on extras to use as teen gifts when the older girls get invited to a party etc. I was also able to take advantage of an on-line coupon for a free lip gloss so I made out quite well. Also got one of my favorite scents in bubble bath at 75% off so I predict a nice bubble bath in my future this evening.
