A Good Day

Unexpectedly, my kids went to stay with Grandpa and Grandma last night.  They're having a great time, Jim and I will have a great time, and we'll all see each other soon.

In the meantime, we got to eat take out with a bottle of Fume Blanc in peace and quiet for dinner last night, and I get an empty house and a free day, with a weekend alone with Jim to look forward to when he gets home.

We woke up like normal, he went to work, and by 8:30 this morning, I'd had a nice quiet early morning like usual- and then had time to clean the whole house as well.  Now I've gotten done with everything I needed to do today, I've showered, dinner is in the crock pot, I've chillaxed a bit, listened to several podcasts- and at 11 AM, I'm ready to go thrifting. 

I have $32 cash in my wallet and the whole rest of the day to visit my favorite spots. 

I'll no doubt stop to grab a free coffee with one of my empty Starbucks coffee bags that I keep in the van just for times like this (did you know if you drink Starbucks coffee at home, and you bring in your empty bag, you get free coffee?). 

It's going to get up to 32 degrees here, which is a heat wave, so I'm not bringing a coat, and the dogs can come along for the ride, since it's not freezing cold out.  Well, Bebo and Pippen will come along for the ride.  Bacon is staying home with a new chewie, which, he's going to enjoy much more anyway.  He doesn't really care about rides.

I've got my iPod and earbuds ready so I can listen and chill all day, by myself, in my own world, which is extremely rare.

I'm really looking forward to it.
