After a crazy day at work where my emotions were up and down, I was so relieved to have such a nice, stress-free evening at home tonight. I don't know what it was about me today...but I know that my poor kiddos sometimes saw the "not so nice" side of me. That probably is still pretty nice compared to some teachers...but I was off, so therefore, as you other teachers know...they were off. Tomorrow will be better. I'm determined. It must be.
So a perfect evening was exactly what I needed...
Grocery shopping that I dreaded turned into a great trip where almost everything that was on my list was on sale, most things I also had a coupon for, and I purchased three items for free.
I came home to a clean living room including a vacuumed floor and my sweet hubby had pulled out some of my artwork today and found a spot for it in our living room. He's too sweet.
We had an amazing dinner of homemade chicken pot pie. Yum. (And there are plenty for left-overs!)
While dinner was in the oven, I cleaned the kitchen. (Yes, cleaning makes me happy when I have the time and energy to do it.)
Our dessert (which isn't a common occurrence around here) consisted of these yummy little things that yep, were on sale too! Dessert for less than $1.50? Yes, please!
Paid a stack of bills including tuition for this semester. (The happy part here is just checking it off the to-do list.)
Now I am relaxing on the couch, with a moment to blog, and looking forward to sitting still.
What does it take for you to have a perfect evening?
