I did NOT turn on Cars on the portable DVD player AND Diego on the TV just to keep my son happy while I cleaned. I can come up with something better than that.
I did not use Lysol instead of Pledge to clean the cabinets. And then turn around and use Scrubbing Bubbles instead of glass cleaner on the mirrors. I am not that screwed up... I can read you know.
No way did I get up at 6:30 on a Sunday to go to church with my children ALONE only to pull out of the driveway and find that a) my daughter's car seat was in my husband's car and b) that my engine lights were on. I did not have to pull back into the garage and take off my church clothes all pouty.
I did NOT fall on my arse in front of the garbage men and then literally laugh and fist bump when I found out they fell at the neighbors house. Karma anyone?
And I did NOT go out to a Thai restaurant with my girlfriends, and end up ordering 4 appetizers, 4 meals.... and then leave to go to ANOTHER restaurant to order 4 desserts. Please, no one can eat that much. *ahem*
I did not forget my really funny NOT ME and be oh so pissed that I can't remember it. Damn it, I got to start writing this stuff down.
Experiment after week 1: Sweet! I had this huge list of things I wanted to do during my nights, but you know what? I didn't get any of them done except to just enjoy my husband. To talk, drink wine... maybe a bubble bath or two - minus the husband. But I found it very peaceful. Who knew? But don't go selling your TV on my account, I still have another week to go.
