Paige and I are having a girls weekend. During tax season Ronnie picked up the majority of the housework. He also did a lot of the parenting while I was working late and gave up his weekends and time with friends to care for Paige. Now that tax season is over, I'm back to more reasonable hours. I worked 45 hours last week instead of the 50-60 a week before April 15th.
Ronnie made plans to go to a Sci Fi convention this weekend. Let's be honest, I would LOVE to go to a good Sci Fi convention. But this one? Not so much. It's a small one in town and is designed more for gamers than Sci Fi addicts. Now, if it were ComiCon in Vegas I would sooooo be the first one packed. Ronnie packed his bags this morning and went off for the weekend. He's staying with a friend at the hotel. That way he can come and go and be out as last as he wants having fun and gaming with friends.
While he's out Paige and I are having some good Mommy Daughter time. So far today we've been to the pet store, a great free place she loves, and the grocery store. Depending on when the rain gets here we'll spend our afternoon at either the park or the mall. She asked to go to the mall so she can get a Starbucks. I'm thinking this afternoon will involve painting toenails and having some girly time. Tomorrow she's going to church with Aunt Wii while I do some housework and curl up on the couch with a good book. From the sounds I hear coming from the monitor, my little girl is up and ready to continue our afternoon of fun.
