Christmas Break

The give-mom-a-break mission was a success. The sitter even promised to stay until 9 this morning. She is an angel sent from heaven!

Knowing that this particular person isn't too dependable I had a back up plan and used it. Elegant food that I didn't have to prepare was served to me on beautiful dishes that I didn't have to wash and all the while I was entertained by stimulating adult conversation and beautiful music played in the background. Window shopping gave way to spotting a stunning black coat (that I just had to try on but didn't purchase) reminding me of days in my previous life on Madison Avenue or evenings on Broadway. The dream coat was a cross between this (without looking like a ho) and this. It was a perfect evening.

Of couse I've had to pay today but that's ok. The battery pack is recharged.

Pretty coat! I'm glad you finally got some "me" time! Wish I could have been there!

I like the ho jacket (naturally) but the second one (from Dillards) looked like there was a holster on it and the chick was packing a piece. Glad you had some "me-time". Payment is always required ;)
