I took a vacation day today.I didn't go out of town.
I did NOT go to a Chic Flick all by myself
I didn't go out to lunch with friends.
I did NOT go to my favorite shops and splurge on anything fun.
I did NOT blog or facebook in my PJ's all day (Just until the kids left for school)
I did NOT enjoy the sun that I haven't seen in a month by talking a long walk.
I did NOT keep the kids home and cuddle with them all day. (I tried, and they really WANTED to go to school?!)
Clean the entire house- top to bottom. For 5 hours straight!
Went to the store for boring stuff like: Soap, Hair Color (don't even get me started on this one) toilet cleaner b/c now I am FRESH out and various other things that are NO FUN AT ALL.
So that I can re-decorate the house for winter because when you have OCD, you can't just do that. You have to start with a clean house, then decorate AND clean as you go, then clean again when done. (It's my quarterly BIG clean/overhaul) So it will be Sunday night before I get to relax and I'll be back to work Monday with a REALLY clean house til the family that I do this all for messes it all up again. (That would be Monday night).
You know what else? No one seemed to think it was odd that I had to take a day off to do this. They think I LIKE taking a day off of work to do stuff to the house. (WHERE DID THESE PEOPLE COME FROM AND HOW DID I GET HERE????)
Great Party right?
I know what you are thinking - I should have taken a SICK day, because that is what I am.....
Party's over people.....
