I just can't decide whether Wednesday or Thursday is my favorite day of the week. I treat myself on Wednesday evenings to some serious scrapbooking time. Usually after I put the kids to bed I tackle something on my list of 'big' cleaning projects. (It's hard to tackle the really tough dirt while making sure a toddler doesn't take off with the cleaning supplies!). My list of big chores is pretty long as our house was quite a mess when we moved in. I am happy to say it is getting shorter each day though. However, on Wednesdays I put the kids to bed, tidy up the living room and kitchen, grab myself a snack and settle in for an evening of scrapbooking and tv. Some weeks I do a lot of scrapbooking and some weeks I get a little scrapbooking done and a lot of tv watching. The shows I enjoy run from 8-11 and once they're done I pack up my stuff and head upstairs to bed. It's a good way to end a day. Plus knowing that I am going to treat myself makes me less irritable on tough days and is great motivation for accomplishing a lot during the day.
Then there's Thursdays. I get up and head to the church for LMO. Then I come home for lunch which we get to eat as an entire family! In the afternoon I put the girls down for a nap and if I want to I can leave the house kid free to run errands, go the library, hang out with Ange or whatever else. Or I can hang out with Nick or take a nap. Then we get to eat dinner, again as an entire family! Dinner is followed closely by our bedtime business. I tuck in the girls as Nick returns home with the baby sitter and we head out to Bible Study. It's an easy going day because I get to share the load of child care with Nick and I get to spend a lot of time with other adults. All things that make me quite happy.
I think maybe they are both my favorite, because they are together. Being an intorverted extrovert I get my energy from being with people, but I also need to have time by myself to do things for myself. It's great to have balance.
