The 12 Days of Blogmas: Day 10
I woke up this morning after a late flight from Chicago, mostly feeling pleased that I wasn't going to see any members of my extended family today.
I spent the day plotting my escape from my immediate family. Not that I don't love them, but 24/7 every day since December 22? Means I could use a little more solitude and a little less "Mom, can I have lunch?"
Between fixing meals and snacks and cleaning up same, I made a few phone calls. I'm chairing a fundraiser in June, and I need to take care of a lot of details.
But I what I really needed was to GET AWAY FROM MY FAMILY.
So I went out and did a little shopping. I bought a couple of lamps. And about a million shelter magazines at the magazine store. Country Living, Accent on Home and Garden, Romantic Homes, This Old House, and Period Living. What an orgy I had ... so many pretty pictures, a person could leap for joy.
And now, for your delectation, 10 Lords a-Leaping.
Note to self: They go back to school--and the office--on Monday.
