This weekend

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
