day off!

Tomorrow is my day off =)

In our house we have a few interesting events. One of them is this: "Day Off!"
Now you may be thinking, what's so unique about that? Well, for us, a "Day Off" is really a day "Off". Not just a day off from work but a REAL day OFF!

So on my day off, I am free from all my responsibilities. The spouse whose day off it isn't, will take care of the following:
1.the house
2.the meals
3.any fetching and sending of children, parents or pets
4.keep the children, parents & pets out of the way of the one, (ME! in this case) who is enjoying the Day Off.

Extra bonus. I may use the option of being driven to any location (within reason), such as favourite spa, bookshop, garden to avoid the unnecessary stress of driving and parking.
Added bonus. If I choose to stay in my study and scrap all day, food requests will be discreetly and miraculously brought up at regular intervals. Aah, this is the life !

If you've never had a real Day Off, it's time to negotiate. ;)

Let you know how it goes.

I'm so jealous! I've never had a day off, and I don't see one heading my way anytime soon, not unless I stop breastfeeding...sigh. You're one lucky lady!
