Being childless when the Offspring has a sleepover at the Mater and Paters has its perks, and its disadvantages.
Not being woken up at 6:30AM by tiny frozen toes is a definite plus.
However, not being woken up at 6:30AM by tiny frozen toes is also a disadvantage.
It’s a disadvantage because I’ve learned I will not be as productive and energetic throughout the day if I have a lie-in that morning. It’s much more effective (though tiring) for me to get my weary ass out of bed at 6:30, shower, dress and get ready for the day, so that by 8:30 or so, I’m kick-started and ready to go with whatever needs to be done.
So. I’ve written off my “puttering” today as my “Get out of jail, free” card day. Tomorrow, I’ll be back into more of a grind, so to speak. (Not the friendliest of descriptions, but hey…)
And in other news, I will get the CD of photos tomorrow from ye auld photographer, so I’m looking forward to that, for sure.
However, now is the time to pull stuff out of the freezer for the BBQ tonight, and go collect the Offspring. Fun stuff!
