Like a kid in a candy store...

Justin's at a friend's house.

Evan just unexpectedly dashed over to the neighbor's house.

Corinne didn't nap, so I parked her in front of Cinderella III to get some quiet time.

And I? I find myself with an unplanned hour to myself...
Decisions, decisions!! The plethora of choices to make loom in front of me:

Laundry, my ever-present nemesis, awaits the continuing cycles with one in the washer and another in queue. Yet, that doesn't quite appeal, surprisingly enough...

Chocolate cake, yes THAT chocolate cake, screamed for my attention. And really? Who am I to deny such a plea?

Blogs to read? True, they're always there. Yet, unlike laundry, the blogs I adore APPRECIATE my efforts. A comment here and there, a click over for the recession, etc.

Still, I find my mind not committing to any idea (tempting though those 3 choices are...) and the laundry remains in the washer, the cake was eaten without any heart (and quickly, so as not to alert the tired 2 year old of its consumption), and my attention just isn't in the reading today.

What to do, what to do?!? A horrible predicament, I know! A housewife and stay at home Mom with free time on her hands!! It's only an hour or so of freedom... A book? Watching Cinderella yet again? Nah...

Trust me, it WON'T be spent on washing the floor. In fact, I think I rather like the polka-dot effect that drippy popsicles and oatmeal give it... Sort of an abstract work of living art...

What do you do when you find yourself with a small increment of time and no plans?
