Weather aside, it's been a good day for a multitude of reasons. Reason one being that the kids are in school today. And, even though it's a Monday, which is usually a half day in these parts, it's a full day of school today. It's Presidents Day and while many are off today and out shopping the White Sales at Macy's or perhaps buying a sale priced mattress, the kids are in school to make up for one of the snow days we had last month. What is it with mattress and towel sales on President's Day? How is it that celebrating such historic names as George Washington and Abe Lincoln makes people want to buy new bedding?
I'm sure the founding fathers might think we're insane, but, on the other hand, they might not frown upon the glory of free market capitalism.
It's also a good day because my couch, which was on back order yesterday, is now available for delivery. I'm waiting on a call back from the delivery people to arrange a date. So much for having ample time to second guess my purchase. After I bought the couch yesterday, I did experience a bit of buyer's remorse, but this morning I woke up feeling positive about my decision.
I wonder what I'll think tomorrow morning?
Capricious should be my middle name. Alison
Because this whole 'stay out of the stores and shop less' idea I had is a complete bust, I bought some pillows for my new couch yesterday. (Here's what the couch looks like) I have to somehow gently incorporate my green walls into the warmth of the couch upholstery I chose. As much as I like the green walls, sometimes I pretend I don't have them so I can buy things I like without worrying about the clashing potential. And then when I do, I freak out and second guess my decision.
Somebody smack me, please.
I'm not sure the pillows will work, but if they don't I'll just return them
And to top off my good day, I had a great workout this morning, including the Kangoo Jumps class (I didn't fall and bust my tailbone, hooray!) followed by a good lunch.
I like a good lunch.
Now it's time for tea (Bigelow white chocolate kisses) and mindless Internet perusal until it's time to get Caroline from school.
Hooray for a good day!
