Rearranging the "To Do List"

Tomorrow we have family arriving for a brief visit. Grandma and Grandpa haven't been here for six months, so it's a visit my girls are eagerly awaiting. I had a huge list of things to get done today: grocery shopping, cleaning the bathrooms to name a few. Then life got in the way.
First, Hubby's car had some major issues and we spent nearly three hours at the dealership this morning hammering out a deal for a new vehicle. Then, it was time for lunch. After lunch I set the "To Do List" aside. A week ago today we were getting blasted with a massive snow storm. Today? The snow is gone and it's 80+ degrees. Why in the world would I keep my daughters cooped up in the house? So we went outside, drew with sidewalk chalk, played hopscotch, played jump rope, took a walk and ate popsicles. I might be able to clean the bathroom tonight after their baths. They're covered head to toe in chalk and popsicle slop, so the tub is going to need a good scrub! Tomorrow morning I'll have to wake up early to do the grocery shopping and be sure I get to the airport in time. It's a small price to pay for an afternoon of big fun!

I think your girls' grandma and grandpa would MUCH prefer you to spend you day doing what you did today with your girls rather than the "To Do" list to get ready for them. Good job for knowing your priorities....I need a lesson like that from time to time that is FOR SURE!!! :) Have a good visit!

Usually I opt to go with the To Do List, and I know I'll be kicking myself tomorrow, but it was just too much fun to resist!

Hurray for fun! My own to-do list for tomorrow evening is off, in service of an almost spontaneous neighbourly potluck.

Enjoy Grandma and Grandpa!

You made the right choice. Later, when they're older, they can help you get ready for Grandma's visit.
