The staffing coordinator phoned this afternoon to cancel my shift for this evening. I was a bit disappointed but then found myself with a block of time and not sure how to fill it. Should I sit down and watch TV? Would get bored and start to snack? No and no! I decided to get a head start on my cleaning project. I cleaned out the closet, my chest of drawers and did all the bathroom cupboards, which are so neat and organized now that I can't even believe it.
I was rewarded by finding a couple of things at the back of the closet, a lovely size large Tinkerbell sweater that my sister had given me which didn't fit and a pretty size large light blue warm up jacket that I had bought on clearance at Target a million years ago that didn't fit. Do you do that? Find clothes that are too small on clearance that you just love and have to have thinking "someday." I was the queen of "someday." It turns out that "someday" is today, I tried them on and they fit. Perfectly! I'm so excited, it was like a little reward from the Universe for not squandering my time. And I get to have dinner with my husband this evening. Bonus!
So, what do you do when you find yourself at a loose end?
