My sister is so awesome. She agreed to take my kids for me Friday evening and Saturday. It will be so nice to have some time to myself. Friday evening I plan on going to my friend's house for a girls only get together for her birthday. I haven't had the chance to really hang out with my friend in a long time, so I am really excited!!! It took some work making arrangements for my sister to watch them, but I don't have to pay anyone for babysitting. My sis is going to pick them up after she gets off work, which is somewhat on that side of town, so I don't have to spend time and gas driving them all the way out there- just to turn around and go back within a mile radius of where my friend lives. My kids love hanging out with their Aunt Taniah, so they will have a blast.
As some of you might not know, I don't get too much time to myself since I am a single mommy. Going out or hanging out (without kiddos) usually manages to cost quite a bit. Babysitters charge a pretty penny now adays. And frankly, since I work I like to spend time with my babies on the weekends or when I am out of work. So this will be a much enjoyed experience or at least I hope so ;)
And this also goes hand in hand with my motivation blog. With the kids gone, I will be able to clean house and declutter Saturday morning!!! :) YAY!!!!! I am planning on going to my parents' house and borrow Daddy's truck to take 2 huge trips to DI. I am just sooooo over the clutter. Way too over it. I don't want to deal with the hassel of a yard sale or I would do that. I would rather get the tax receipt from DI to use on my taxes when tax time rolls around. This year I have donated so much stuff to DI, so I hope that will come in handy. ;) Here's to making a better effort at getting things in order.
Again did I mention how excited I am to have Me time??? *grin
