I'm a planner. I like to know what's in store for today and the days to come. By looking at life a few days at a time, I can make sure we get to the things we are supposed to, we eat healthy and the kids get enough rest. When I plan, life runs smoothly.
However, we shook it up a little last night. Someone invited us over for dessert and drinks. Typically, we never go out Friday night. The kids are tired and we have a quiet night at home with a fairly early bed time. However, I threw caution to the wind and agreed to go.
We stayed way too late and enjoyed ourselves a little too much. But what fun we all had. We had a late and slow start to today. Eamon is napping. Everyone is happy. I'm so pleased we agreed to go!
So now I have a goal. Once our basement is sorted out (more on that next week), I'm going decide some Friday morning to invite people over that night for dessert and drinks.
I suspect the planner in me is going to want to pick in advance which Friday I try to have my impromptu get together, but old habits die hard.
