Hubby home sick = good day!

I know it probably shouldn't work this way BUT whenever Edward stays home sick from work, which is not often, my work load is lighter. You would think I would have more to do with a sick and helpless man around but NOPE!

Listen to my day... I got the kids to school on time and Connor accompanied us as usual while Edward got some sleep. Then Connor and I returned home. I took a shower and got ready for my haircut appointment. I had planned on taking Connor but, woohoo, no need to have squirmy toddler on my lap during my trim. I got my haircut like a civilized person... alone. And then.... *trumpets blow* I got solar nails! Yes! Solar Nails! Ooo I feel sooo pretty!

Tuesday I got my eyebrows waxed... so between the haircut and shapely brows I feel better than I have in a while. But then the nails... goodness!

Then when I got home all purdy'd up the boys (Edward and Connor) were sleeping again! So I got 20 minutes on the computer before they woke. And just in time too because I had to leave to go to a parent-teacher conference at Cullen's school. Again, without a toddler in tow. *skipping* I got a glowing reports on Cullen. His teacher reported that he is a very happy boy in class which is a turn around from when he started "big kid school". She said he is very well behaved which is a blessing since she does not have many boys in the class that are.. bless their little hearts. She said he is very tender hearted and that he is a ladies man... the girls seem to love him. haha. When I told Cullen what Ms Sharp said he scowled and said none of it was true. (Oh he is humble too.. so cute!)

I left the school and picked up Avery and we went and got the car washed. Which made me feel even prettier! And went back to pick up Cullen. We got home around 2:30pm and I got to sit at the computer making this scrapbook page with my new nails smiling up at me.

The page is of Avery and Cullen right before we moved to the new house. Avery was 17 months and Cullen 3 years old. The journaling on the page says:

Siblings are the people we practice on,
the people who teach us about fairness
and cooperation and kindness and caring-
quite often the hard way.
Ain't that the truth.

What a wonderfully magical day! Too bad Edward is feeling a bit better.

Like father, like son, in so many ways. :)

Glad your day was so glorious. We all need days like that.

BTW, what are SOLAR NAILS? You'll have to post a photo for us because I'm totally clueless on what they look like.
