I showed up to work at 7am, only to be greeted with "oh, we don't need you today". Excuse me? We left Texas 3 days earlier than we had to so that I could be at work on Friday. Missed Weston's 1st birthday. Left Chicago sooner than we would have liked to. B could have checked back in on Monday and we could have left Texas on Saturday, not Wednesday. I know what's done is done, and there is no point in crying over spilt milk. But really?
I was in such shock. The kids' dad goes "You didn't come back early to be here, did you?" I replied, "ya. Kind of", complete with my bitch look. I'm giving them my resignation letter on Wednesday and will be done nannying by mid-March.
To make the best of my unexpected free day I packed up all our Christmas decorations, cleaned the first floor, organized my sewing supplies, joined our local gym, got my allergy shots, and made an appointment to get a pedicure on Monday.
I am SO excited about joining a gym! Going to workout classes is my favorite way to keep in shape, and the gym is .5 miles away, door to door! B suggested I just go to the free classes at the gym on base, but let's be honest. If I have to spend 30 minutes driving and parking, I won't go. So I am spending 41 dollars of my personal allowance (money that we both get each month for fun stuff- our date nights, coffee, etc) on my gym membership. Money well spent, if you ask me!
