And So It Begins

Last night, when HBL got home, he brought in the mail and I saw that I got two magazines. Immediately, I got excited to read them, but then shot that thought down in the next second, remembering that I don’t ever have time to sit and read a magazine, let alone two.

So I went about my business, pricing out water heaters (ours decided to bust itself over the weekend), pricing out the delivery of a water heater, then pricing out the installation of a water heater. Ugh.

Anyway, as I was sitting there, researching my heart out, I noticed that no sounds were coming from either of the XY’s living in my house. So I looked up from the computer screen and scanned the room. I noticed two things:

1. Monkey wasn’t in the room – I forgot that I put him down for a nap in his crib
2. Football was on TV and my husband was watching it

HALLELUJAH! Football Pre-Season! That means some football game will be on at my house for the next six months! Mommy Time begins!

*Commence singing and dancing*

What the heck was I doing on the computer researching boring, old water heaters?! I should be sprawled out on the couch, eating bon bons and reading my new magazines!!! Oh the possibilities!

Hmmm, let me see, shall I read about fall clothing trends? What about the latest in baby snacks? Actually, maybe I should start reading that book I purchased a couple weeks ago…

Decisions, decisions.

  1. Now, I've been reading lots of posts about the upcoming "football season", but I don't think I've heard anyone refer to it as the return of "mommy time!". That is great!! ;-)

  2. Go for it!!! I hope you did!! I have a stack of magazines I just received last week and I have yet to read them!! When I took the kids to the library last week, I picked out 2 books for myself. Tim laughed and said, "When do you think you're actually gonna be able to read those??". A girl can dream….

  3. oh the possibilities… couch and magazines sounds great. I ended up canceling my subscription since my little one was eating most of my fashion trends :)
