I am so excited.
Tomorrow, I'm taking a well deserved vacation day. And no one knows I'm taking it. Well, actually - just my husband doesn't know. I've got a full day planned, and if I spill the beans too soon - I'll never get out of the house in time. So I need to pretend that it's a "status quo" kind of day until I'm on the road. Then, I can spill the beans.
First thing in the morning, I'm off to do a fun Walgreens run. I haven't done one of those sans kids - in I can't tell you how long. Then, I've got a coffee date with Glitter at Starbucks. We've been trying to get together and hang out since I don't know - November? And I know that there's a Peppermint Mocha just calling my name....
Then, I've got a 12:30 massage! I got a gift certificate for Christmas, and haven't had the chance to use it - so I called to see if the masseuse was available tomorrow, and as luck would have it - she was! Normally she has a bit of a wait, so I was surprised to get in so soon. I just called yesterday on a whim. Deep tissue massage, here I come! You just don't realize how sore you are until someone touches your back. I'm so looking forward to it.
Since apparently I was on a lucky roll - I booked a 2:30 hair cut with a stylist I'd been trying to get into for a few months, but never seem to be able to get in to see. She just happened to have an opening for a trim, which is all I need. So, since I've got my gift cheque from work - I figured I'd split it on my hair and shoes. Get the most bang for my buck, you know?
It's not often that I'm out of work for a reason other than the kids being sick, or having family in town - or for having a day by myself.
So, it's going to be all about me tomorrow.
I think I deserve it. And clearly - so does "someone else", because everything aligned perfectly!
The massage therapist was available - Glitter wasn't busy, the hair stylist was open.
Life is good.
