A Diner, An Icee & A School Desk

I had big plans for today: laundry & watching coverage of 9/11. That's it. I finally got my house cleaned yesterday. Completely cleaned--floors scrubbed and all; I was looking forward to a down day.

Geoff decided he needed a Daddy Date with his Lauren this afternoon, and Abby was more than happy to stay home and veg with her mom. But then she fixated on an idea.... she wanted an Icee. Of course that turned into, "I know, Mom, we can go downtown Fairborn to some of my favorite shops." Sure, Abby.

So what started out as my day of vegging turned into a pleasantly pleasurable afternoon with my gal pal, Abigail. We stopped at the little diner downtown and split a sandwich, moved onto my favorite scrapbooking boutique for a few odds & ends, then made an exciting find at our favorite antique shop--a school desk for Abby!

The laundry is almost finished, and there are two little girls relaxing their bodies late this afternoon after spontaneous quality time alone with their parents.

I love these days!
