I've learned to structure my answers to include chores/errands that consume a lot of time..
Thanks Dreams.

Unfortunately, I can't get away with that. She lives with us.

What really got me was, not only did she hear me say how much I was looking forward to relaxing today, and see me settled comfortably on the sofa with a book and soda in hand, she even decided to join me (grabbing her Kindle and glasses) for all of 5 minutes before completely changing course and dragging me with her!

Luckily (I hope) tonight will be better. My mom has gone to a concert at her church, Hubby went to pick up our eldest (and a pizza), and we have declared tonight as "Reading Night"! Wish me luck!!
