Lots of tender mercies this weekend, lots of family.
One of the daily miracles I don’t often thank God for, is time. There never seems to be enough. Just made arrangements to add 3 extra days to my year! Okay, there aren’t really 3 more days in my year than yours, but 3 days of no work for me, limited work for my husband, and no children to take care of (my full time 24/7 job) for 3 entire days is the best gift I could possibly get for my birthday. Thanks Mom!
What will I do with 3 entire days — absolutely no outside commitments? Finish a 20 year project, put it online, thousands of dollars of home improvement (without 5 kids slowing me down) — re-paint the entire house, finish rebuilding the fence, and even put in some new carpet. Already lining up help to come work on the kitchen for stuff I can’t do. If the tax return comes by then I have a few more projects I’ll hire out also. Finish the honey-do’s? Maybe if I’m good we’ll sneak a date night in as well. 🙂 Then a 4th day goofing off in Vegas. (Did I mention I have a problem with extreme optimism?)
What would you do with 3 extra days?
