Rain, Rain

I am the kind of person who gives into their own whims.


Like today.

I am also the kind of person who functions best with average weather.

Too nice or too icky of a day both have a tendency to render me useless.

Or completely lazy at least.

(Isn't getting to know me fun?)

Today I had an appointment, so I had a sitter lined up for Gemma.

And it it was raining. Lots. Ugh.

And I was supposed to have to go to this appointment. Like, drive there. And then drive back.

And then...

on a whim...

I dropped Gemma off at the sitters...

turned the car back around...

and went home.

I cleaned house all day, and discovered Dead Like Me on Netflix.

Sometimes, impulsivity is a good thing.


  1. Haha You sound just like me. I found your blog today by clicking on your button on someone else's (I've forgotten who by now) blog and I've spent the better part of my day reading it from the beginning up to this post. I'm also a single mom living at home again.... I have two daughters, I went back to college after my divorce and got my degree in March, I am currently unemployed (which totally sucks), and I'm doing my best to plug along through each day and be the best mom I can to these two little munchkins. Anyway, thanks for writing so's nice to know I'm not the only mom out there going through some of this stuff. Keep going! (and those days where you are impulsive...keep having those)

  2. it sounds like you needed it. yay for kid free house cleaning days.

  3. Sounds like me. I was supposed to drive all the way to my campus for an hour long class. Instead I left Jude with my grandma and ran errands. It felt good to be productive.
