Before I was even all the way awake this morning I was thinking of a way to get out of the house and procrastinate some chores.
Who else might possibly be awake this early with kids? So I texted Brandi, my partner in crime with things to do with the kids.
Me: Wake up! What are u doing today? I got a shit load of laundry and haven’t showered yet, but I think I’m gonna throw my hair in a pony tail and put on some clothes and take the kids to the park. Wanna go? Supposed to rain later. So we gotta hurry.
Brandi: Ur text just woke me up.
Me: Haha! Wake up. It’s nice out and prob not for long!
Me: I’m just jealous I can’t ever sleep in past 8.
Brandi: I don’t have any kids here. lol.
Me: How that happen?! Lucky!!
Brandi: I made it happen. lol.
Me: Can I borrow your magic wand for next weekend?
Brandi: My magic wand was a birthday party and my dad. lol.
Me: So does that mean u don’t want to go to the park? haha
I would have loved some other adult company, but the kids and I made it anyway. It wasn’t too cold, considering that it is November in the midwest. But it was windy. We had a great time. I let them run loose and wild. AND I knew that they would take a good nap when we got home and I could probably get some “chores” done.
Sometimes you just gotta get up and go. Forget the weather forecast. Forget the makeup. I can wash my hair later. With all these kids, if we don’t just go….we will never make it out the door. And I just wanted to get out before it rained on us. What a great morning! Love the spontaneity of it all. Those are usually the best times.
