My Tuesday/Thursday Shoes

Loving wear cuter shoes. I tend to wear my flip flops EVERDAY since it that makes it easier carrying someone around your hip.

When school started a few weeks ago I didn't realize that tow days of the week I would feel as if I were walking around in someone else's shoes. I haven't experienced the mom days that I am experiencing since I started having children. I've always had at least one of the girls with me all of the time, that is unless I have a sitter or great friend to ease my errand pain and keep them for me.

I am taking advantage of the next four months that I have Tuesday and Thursdays kid free. We all love our children, right? But, there is just something about the errands you can accomplish in half the time when you aren't lugging a toddler in and out of every store. It is rejuvinating to look back at my day and see things I've accomplished or maybe just fun I was able to have while I was free from Mommy duties.

Me leaving Maryn on her first day of school.

I meant to document about this after the first week of having my much needed break, but of course, lack of motivation and exhaustion because of pregnancy, kept me away from the computer for any length of time. So here I am almost four weeks later posting about the"new shoes" I'm sporting.

Here are some of the things that I have been doing on my Tuesdays and Thursdays...

* a pedicure
* numerous stops to HEB, Target, Sam's Club, & Costco
* chats with friends uninterupted
* lunch dates with my hubby to where else? Chuy's

* getting my hair highlighted & cut
* workouts without the guilt of leaving a crying child in the kid's room
* a couple of outings to the mall
* furniture shopping
* reading a good book
* stopping to get my car washed more than once
* finding myeslf dressing not only shoes, but clothes & jewelry I don't normally run errands in

Me all alone in my CLEAN minivan.

Even though I love my free run around time, I think I should take just one of my two days each week to stay home and get more organized. I need to still dejunk things before we can put our house up for sale. I need to go through our never ending pink girls' clothes stash and decide what to keep for the next one and what to just bid farewell to. I should allow one of my days to cleaning and laundry that might get neglected on other days. All of these sound like good things to do on my days off but, it is hard for me to think about doing them when I have been having so much fun out and about doing girl things.

I am jealous of your kid free two days a week. I guess I will be there next year. I am in desperate need of a pedicure.

I also noticed you are supporting the flip flops as much anymore and are wearing more "Allison" shoes. You should post them....they are so cute.

And two posts in one week? Okay Greg must be still at work :)

This is me. I find it easier to do my "out of the house" stuff than my "in the house stuff" that will always manage to be there waiting for me when I have an hour or two free.

Cute pedicure, by the way!

Kid-free errand running is the best! I'm so glad you're getting a taste of freedom before the baby arrives. Your toes look fabulous in your Tuesday/Thursday shoes, and a clean minivan is a thing of beauty!

I have Tuesday and Thursday free too...and Love it! I help in Noelle's class Thursday, so that only leaves me Tues., but even ONE day makes such a difference! I got a pedicure this week, it was so needed! I am with you....I really should stay home alone and organize, but I just can't force myself to be home when I can be out and about all by myself!! I love the shoes!

I am kid free everyday now from 8:30-noon. I haven't had this in 16.5 years - except for a brief year while I was preg with my last and all three were in school full time. I think sometimes I got more done with Hunter home. Good for you to get out and strap some fun shoes on and get some fun things done! (cute shoes!)
I better get off the computer and go switch the laundry! Always a joy!

Keep on doing the fun stuff. It will go by so quickly and you will be back to someone on your hip. Atleastthat is what I am telling myself. I have tuesday/ thursdays off until our baby comes in March.
