me time

It was one of those days...

Something going on from the minute I woke up, one thing after another ... nothing major or time consuming- just go go go. all. day. long.

And a bunch of little things kept going wrong...for example I dropped my wedding ring in the toilet. lovely. Then when I went grocery shopping - my cart ran away from me in the parking lot. And then when I was preparing dinner, I dropped two dirty utensils on the floor on the way to the sink, my bag of rice spilled all over the counter and the stand mixer blew my milk/soup mixture all over my shirt...and the counter...and the floor... and the cupboards. As if that wasn't bad enough...dinner sucked! Really it did. So we had frozen pizza.

I needed some 'me' time. I pulled my ponytail holder out, whipped my mass of locks around like some crazy super model, grabbed my ipod and sunglasses and headed outside. Minutes later I was jamming out to my favorite songs with the wind blowing through my hair...

on my John Deere riding lawn mower. I needed some 'me' time and the lawn needed to be mowed...sweet serendipity or a multi-tasking mama? Who cares! Either way it worked...I had an hour and half to myself and the lawn looks GREAT!

And to top it off, you had my daughter for the evening...we need to do a "mommy date" soon!! No kids, no husbands!!! So I take it the chicken and rice wasn't so good...I guess now it's my turn to try a crock-pot recipe and let you know what we think. :)
