Crisis Averted

I did it! I finally did it! I am so proud of myself (ok tooting my own horn a little too much here). I actually filled out the online prescription form and had my Pfizer gold refilled. Of course I waited until D was home to drive me down to the pharmacy to pick it up, but that is a different story. So tomorrow there will be no sneezing fits. I must say though that the allergy attacks are quite the ab workout.

Considering the fact that the furthest I went today was the front stoop I got surprisingly little accomplished. It was one of those scattered days I have. See, I may have 3 paying jobs, but I only work outside of the home a day and a half a week. The 2 in home jobs are my own businesses and if I don't feel like working I don't. Today I didn't feel like working. So I started the day with reading my favorite blogs, followed by sweeping the floors (sooo needed to be done), then I sat down at the sewing machine to work on a project. Then the thread broke so I went to do some ironing, then the iron kinda burned the ironing board pad. Then I went back to the sewing machine, then to the dishes... can you see a pattern here? I think the pharmacist should slip me some Ritalin instead of Zyrtec.

So D and I are going on a romantic one night get away this weekend. I am sooo excited. We haven't been away for a very long time. The last hotel stay we had was on a rock hard bed in Vancouver, WA. But that was to help D's sister move, and wasn't really romantic. This time we are going to Vancouver, BC. One of my favorite places in the world. Staying at the Hyatt and having dinner at the noodle house. Of course I will just have to stare longingly at the doors of GM Place since we can't afford hockey tickets. I do plan on spending every last cent I have on a new Team Canada Olympic sweatshirt though.

I have this wonderful Roots sweatshirt from the last Olympics. But frankly it has been deemed unfit for "out of the house wear." So I have to buy a new one. The bad part is HBC is doing the Team Canada stuff. But a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

I really am way too excited about this night away. I know I don't have any kids to get away from, but I do have cats. And a night in a bed with just the 2 of us is just heaven!

I am in agreement with you...just because you don't have kids doesn't mean you don't need romantic nights away. Its a relief to get away from the house, responsiblities, all the things that usually take up your time...good for you guys!!
