It's a quiet day in the neighborhood

DD is away on retreat today... coming home tonight! DS is away working at the Irwin's. DH is in his office working. And yours truly is playing on the internet. Life is grand. :)

So today I walked on the treadmill 20 minutes. Yuck, but I did it. Got the car detailed and now it smells like new. YAY! And... *drum roll please* ... I am going to the salon for a new 'do. Cut, color, the works. Which means another couple of hours by myself pampering me!

This may just be the best day of my vacation except I miss my kids and the pollen is getting to me. *snort*

I may not be practicing solitude in the spiritual sense but I am liking the quiet.

So, excuse me now while I go to my big comfy chair and do a logic puzzle before my makeover.

For those of you new to internet lingo:
DD = Dear Daughter
DS = Dear Son
DH = Dear Husband

Somehow I missed that you are a HS math teacher. I have a degree for teaching HS English, but I never taught full-time. Started having babies, and it just never became a priority after that. My husband was a math major. It's a wonder we ever got together! I hope you are enjoying your day to yourself, and you MUST post the new you.

Ooo girl...me too! I'm going on Thursday for the cut and color! Can't wait - I'm waaaay over "do" (get it?) I took all the wallpaper down in the kids' bathroom yesterday and today and hopefully, I'll be able to start painting tonight or tomorrow - wanna try and get it done by Friday before the cleaning lady comes. I haven't exercised but I have been watching the intake - I've done worse today than yesterday but not terribly awful. Thanks for the "key" I never knew all the D's.

Thank you for clarifying your internet abbreviation for those of us who are of the internet challenged generation (not a spring chicken like yourself) I was beginning to think I had lost my mind, not a far stretch given the current state of my hormonal fluxuations. I was seriously beginning to wonder if you possible had lost your mind as well and would be joining me in the padded room. So here goes my DD is returning from a retreat today, my DH is on vacation and catching up on some yard work, my DS (AKA: My beloved the Unemployed Idiot) is helping him in hopes of raising some much need gas money and me (do we get initials????) I am enjoying myself as I have spent the whole day posting to various blogs and working on several post of my own. I even found on blog with similar views for my attest Oprah tirade. We do love a day off and having nothing to do but what I want to do. YAAAAAAAA! Can’t wait to see the new do as well.
