If You Were Given 90 Extra Minutes

what would you do with it?

At my job today we've all been told that we're being released 90 minutes early. They've done it to facilitate as many people as possible being able to attend a local park grand opening, but it's not mandatory. I'm going to get my car registered at DMV, then going to pick up a grill that I ordered from Lowe's last weekend which will burn up my hour and a half, but it's time I don't have to spend after work running errands which equals more time to hang out with the kids this evening. So! What would you do if you were handed an extra 90 minutes today?

Happy Friday, ladies!!

What can I do next?

I would visit a local museum or browse a bookstore...or even the library! Places where I can read about something and can think about what I'm looking at w/o interruptions.

Have fun whatever you do.

Most days... long walk outside in the fresh air and then pick-up my son early.

Today b/c we're having 20 people at our house for brunch on Sunday (Happy Mother's Day to me), I would grocery shop and get everything done for Sunday so that I don't have to go tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day everyone.

Get a hair cut and color! (if i had the $) :) 4 inches of gray and two inches of extra length. One of these days I will put me first for a few minutes. Maybe.

I would probably grab the kids, head to the park with the bubbles, play until dark and go to the local pizza place. They have pizza and salad buffet cheap and 3 and under eat free. Just have to pay for me! The waitresses even know us so well that they often give the girls ice cream if they eat well! They girls love to swing and slide and they love the attention at the pizza place. Its their favorite thing to do!

Ideally, I would sneak away and get a pedicure. Realistically, I'd probably go home, let the dog out, start some laundry and set out on my deck with a magazine or book!

Today? I would have just sat outside with a book. It was absolutely gorgeous around here today.

Alas alack, I was not given those 90 minutes. Hope you felt good about the way you got to use yours!

Call my mom and give her the time she really deserves. That sounds cheesy, I have not gotten to hang out with her since my surgery! She was my saving grace while i was sick. She was there to help with my kids, be with me at the hospital several times and there when I woke up after surgery. Having to see your kid at any age sick and in discomfort is hard but she didnt let it phase her. I miss hanging out with her!! this weekend instead of worrying about what she was gonna get for mamas day, she offered to take my kids over night saturday, so that we could go out and celebrate our housemates birthday! WE have not been out in a very very long time so when she said ill take the kids...all three my jaw dropped to the floor!!

I wouldnt mind if my pop was with us for the 90 minutes. He is my Favorite person to hash out Politics with because we are SO SO very different in our beliefs! This week has been a very full Political plate so there is lots to debate to talk about!! WE can do this without getting huffy or angry either which is even better!!

I get something like that today. My husband is taking his mom out for dinner and taking our son with him soooo ....I'm going to catch up on paperwork for my business, do a little cleaning around the house, fix myself some mongolian beef (a dish my husband can't stand), have a glass of wine...hmmm...I think that will probably use up all the time I get!

HAPPY FRIDAY and Happy Mothers Day...love this post!!

answers from Lansing on

Oh my....

I would totally go home and enjoy the house completely alone for the 90 minutes. I never get to be home alone which I used to enjoy back in the day before kids! My husband gets to enjoy it quite often when I'm out doing something with the kids alone, but for me its very rare.
