OPERATION: change of plans

My most favorite thing about being a stay at home mother is my flexible schedule, we can do when / what / where /  how - whenever. For the most part. Especially since the girls are young and haven't built a schedule of their own.

Today, for example: 
I constructed my grocery list
Got myself dressed & ready
Got both girls dressed
Got the girls loaded in the car
Ran back inside for the deodorant swipes I forgot earlier
& started down the road

I got to the second stop light before I said to myself
"What am I doing? I don't want to grocery shop today!"

But I knew the girls would lose their if I just turned around and went home, so I made a totally legal lane change and headed to Subway for lunch. I figured we could kill 20 minutes easy with a quick and dirty lunch stop and then head home where I could unload my crazies and not deal with Saturday afternoon judgmental looks from strangers.

As I drove home I couldn't help but think about how much I love my schedule *or lack of*. I can grocery shop tomorrow, or hell I can go Monday or Tuesday probably need to go before Wednesday if I want to feed my children. But you get the point.

I know soon enough our days will fill with school drop offs / pickups, ballet, t-ball, birthday parties and whatever non sense activities we end up in, but for now, 

I'll do what I want.
