I've hit total working-parent* levels of boring while totally trying not be so completely boring. Last weekend was a little rough, a little Mamma-Pic strife. This week, we decided to have a Mamma-Pic day.
On the schedule for today: some business, some fun.
Business: Library (only one late book - we've been working on it), bank, grocery store, dollar store, pay a bill, buy cat food.
Running errands! How very grown-up fun! (See above: note about boring.) But it was nice to just spend time with my kid.
(Actual) Fun: Sleep in (!), eat lunch, art supplies store, walk, paint nails, watch movies.
Now Pic has rainbow nails, and I have The Stone Reader to look forward to.
We watched Anastasia (I haven't seen that in a really long time). Um, perhaps Pic and I will schedule some Russian history at some point. Because I'm pretty sure that there are other views of the 1917 revolution than the poor royal family being cursed by an evil magic man (and now I'm singing Heart). I believe there's a Stuff You Missed in History Class episode or a Stuff You Should Know episode on Rasputin. We might start there.
Pic asked for one more movie. We were going to watch some '90s teen movie called Wish Upon a Star, but it was just too bad. We couldn't get through with it. So we went with Girls Just Want to Have Fun (which, admittedly, is probably kind of bad in other ways, but I can handle it).
In other non-news, that scritching and preening thing...my hair was so ridiculously, incredibly oily last night. I washed it this morning (was scheduled for a wash today) and it's pretty nice right now. I think I'll hold off on messing with my regular regime for the next three-and-a-half months. Then I can scritch and preen all I want as I binge on Grey's Anatomy. (Scritching and preening. Makes me think of birds. Parakeets and cockatiels. Not my favorite.)
Now to finish off the night: Wash laundry, clean the bathroom, read. And then six more days of work before another blissful-mundane day off.
* Working-parent. What is the acceptable terminology? Because I've been a parent who doesn't have a job and stays home with my kid. I've been a parent who works very part-time outside of my home but mainly stays home with my kid. I've been a parent who works way too much at home and outside of my home at the same time and tries to still be a parent. I've paid attention (more at some times than others) to the "Mommy Wars" conversation. I get the debate about the language. But I don't know if anyone's come up with terminology everyone's happy about. (Is that possible?)
