Remember to be Grateful

It’s not too late to enter the giveaway. Just leave a comment on the below post (It’s a Giveaway!!) before 5:00 pm today and I’ll announce the winner sometime over the weekend. Good luck!!

So, me and the man are getting away for the evening. One good thing about living in a resort area is that … well, it’s a resort area. Anyway, we are going to this cute little bed and breakfast

He sprung it on me yesterday and at first I was a tad bit annoyed. Why? Because he kept asking me how soon I could get off on Friday so we could get this thing started. His schedule is a lot more flexible than mine. Then I started to think about all I had to do to prepare … you know all the “lady” stuff we have to do in order to get ready for romance. Then I had to think about what the kids would eat for dinner then I had to think about how my daughter would get to her hair appointment on Saturday morning. I had to skip the gym this morning and move grocery shopping to Saturday.

Spontaneity is not my forte. Can you tell?

Then I had to stop and remind my ungrateful ass that I have a man who wants to take me away for the evening. He booked the room and made dinner reservations and I’m getting all bunched up because of details.

Everything will get done. They will eat. She’ll get to her appointment. I’ll go to the gym on Saturday and the grocery store ain’t going nowhere. I’m leaving the office at 2:30 and we are going to have some grown up time.

I can’t wait.

Spontaneity is a beautiful thing!

Hope you had a blast and left the details behind! ;)

I'm not sure if you're the award type, but I've nominated you, again [two in Jan and one this month]. :)
