I got to go to lunch today. I went with a group of people from work to meet our new School Social Worker. I say "I got to go" because it's just the kind of thing that I don't really get to do much anymore. Lunch out, with a group of adults and no kids. To top it off, my parents decided to take my kids to Greenfield Village, and I had a few hours to myself!!!
Guess what I did? After lunch, I stopped at the eye doctor to pick up the contacts that I ordered in January. Then I came home and called to schedule a hair appointment. I haven't had my hair cut in 5 months, and haven't had the color done in close to a year. While I was at it, I also scheduled a doctor's appointment for myself, and an appointment to have my teeth cleaned!! WooHoo! Anyone with kids, and even more so those with twins, know that this is no small feat. Now, I just have to figure out who is going to watch the girls so I can actually GET to the appointments:)
It is so tricky to run errands. When I am feeling adventurous, I can take the girls with me to do a trip to the grocery store, or to run to Target or the mall. It's the little trips, where I need to just run in quickly to get one thing, that are hard. It's VERY difficult to find the time to go to the post office, for example. Or just to run in to pick up my contacts. I can't leave them in the car, but it is SO much work to get them out of the car and loaded into the stroller just to run in then come back out and load them back into the car.
I bet it's only going to get harder. I can only imagine unloading a big power wheelchair every time I need to go somewhere. I better start working out. In my spare time...
