I started off with a nice run by myself, then used a birthday gift card to have a facial at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Spa. It was heavenly. The Spa has a remarkable view of Tubbs Hill, and it was so nice (and QUIET, yay!) to sit and enjoy a coffee in my bathrobe while watching all the folks out walking and enjoying the sunshine.
When I finally dragged myself out of the Spa, I went to the library, checked out a book for myself and skimmed The Atlantic. I had lunch at Bakery by the Lake. At that point, I felt sufficiently rested and refreshed, so I spent the afternoon running errands that I otherwise wouldn't drag the boys along: The Well-Read Moose (my favorite bookstore!), Ulta, Kohls, Target and Costco. With both boys in tow, I typically max out at two stops for errands - they can't handle much more, or we run out of time before I have to pull over and give baby J a bottle. So, I got a lot done and enjoyed some quiet time; so it was a great day. And I was so glad to get home for dinner with these three sweet smiling faces, runny noses and all.
