Thank my lucky stars...

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.

Isn't the man going to notice you got your hair done?

Enjoy your day. I usually have to pull a sick day for that kind of day.

*cough....actually I pulled this last week.

I would love a massage (even one without a happy ending!)

Enjoy it, girl...you DO deserve it! :)

I've NEVER had a massage. I'm jealous.

Laura said...

Enjoy it- You do deserve it!

I'm so jealous! I am going to pull one of those, but not for a while. I had to "waste" almost five of my paid days off when I was sick a month or so ago and this month I'll have to "waste" another five days to get my left foot fixed and be literally laid-up all week. Guess I'll save it all for summer!

Hey All:

Had a blast!!! ;) I just posted about it. :)

Ben: Stop - aren't those myths! ;)


Noojes - Thanks for visiting! I'll send some lucky stars your way. :)

Clew: SO ENVIOUS of you girls! Have a fun Rangoon celebration and I'll be thinkin' of you guys. ;)

Mellissa: Didn't even have time to squeeze in the shopping for boots/shoes. But I still have some money left over so I'm planning on going tomorrow at lunch. I'm thinking boots might be a thing of the past at this point in the stores, so I may have to get fun summer shoes!
