When I was a kid, what was the first thing I did when I heard my parents would be out of town? Mom, if you’re reading this, the answer is Picked up my room, Asked for extra credit homework assignments, Rested, Told my friends no parties when my parents were gone, Missed You! I’ve heard of an unspoken rule that you wait 15 years until you tell your parents the truth about things you’ve done. I personally enjoy my position as the eldest that means, for the most part, my siblings don’t have much dirt on me because they were too young to be tattle-tales when I was a teenager having fun. I relish in my “shining example” role so in most cases, I’ll never admit to anything. (I guess we’ll see if my parents read the blog!).
Perhaps this next statement will be more telling as to what I truthfully did back then, because I still do it now! My kids will be out of town next week so with evenings all to myself, I am planning ways to have fun:
GET CAUGHT UP! Life has been so crazy lately that I need to get caught up with paperwork, housework, friends, blogging, etc. I will dedicate 1 evening to do what I have to do before doing what I want to do – catch up with friends! See kids, I lead by example!
SEE A MOVIE! Whether it’s at home or at the movie theatre, it’s a great excuse to not cook, just eat popcorn for dinner like I did in college and be entertained!
READ A BOOK AT THE BEACH! This is my new favorite to take a book to the beach and not leave til I’ve damn well finished it! Next time I’ll be sure of more accurate coverage with sunscreen.
BE CRAFTY! Pinterest is my new favorite toy! I’m going to make 1 meal completely from pinterest recipes and do 1 craft project inspired by something I saw on there. Give me a link to propose your favorite ideas in the comments below and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest! (Button to the right!)
Well, tell me what you would do!
