If by chance...

If for some reason I were in the mood to pamper myself this is what I would do...

I would sleep in. I would not get up at 6 in the morning to go run with some friends. Especially when the plan is to run hills every Monday. Instead I would set the alarm with just enough time to get Melissa and Spencer up for school.

Then I would take a shower. A nice long, hot shower. Without the bathroom fan on. Cause that makes me a little cold. You know, one day of it not on is going to ruin the paint in the bathroom. For the record, I did wipe the condensation off the wall around the shower just so I couldn't be blamed later on.

However, that is where my nice day of pampering myself ends...

My curling iron broke, and my only other two options were to use the skinny thing I use on the girl's hair, or try my hand at the round brush and a blow dryer. Needless to say, neither of them really turned out, so my hair looked like crap all day.

The rest of my day was spent just doing mommy things. I was in charge of preschool carpool. It was my turn to read in Spencer's class, I drove dance carpool, and had piano lessons and making dinner, doing homework and stuff like that. Not to mention I had a primary meeting at my house.

I do have to say that I had a couple of visits from some really great friends and phone calls as well. Oh, and I ate pie for lunch (Thanks Mom and Dad). I also have to say that the kids rose to the occassion, there was only minimal fighting. So I count the day a winner anyway!

Oh man!!!! You need to start getting pampered on your birthdays. Maybe you should get a new curling iron for your B-Day for starters!! Don't you wish you could have the old rule of not working on your birthday back? I miss it. Sorry it wasn't better.

For the record, I did have a good birthday. You can't really take the whole day off like you'd like to when you're the mom. And BTW I did buy me a new curling iron :)

I wasn't around when Michelle called to say Happy Birthday, so Happy Birthday from me.
