Oh joy! I was dreading fighting the Saturday hordes at Lowes just to get a begonia and some Osmocote. Then it occurred to me: I DON'T HAVE TO GO ON SATURDAY. I CAN GO ON MONDAY.

Yep, and you'll love it even more when Monday comes around and you don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn and get going!

DH used to say he loved sitting in his hammock on the porch on Monday mornings and watching everyone going off to work.


Congrats OP!!!

It is awesome to be able to run your errands during the week

But sometimes when you are out and about, you will wonder if anyone works!

And remember, when school is in session, do not go to the grocery store during the time when they are dismissed.

The moms/dads usually go to the grocery store after they pick up the kids. They can be packed!

Congratulations.
Make your own way, do what is good for you, this is not a competition.

I go early in the morning.


In fact, my schedule is more or less "inverted"... my "noon" is midnight.


Works pretty well for me.


Thx

Congrats! No more rushing around to get things done on weekends or before or after work. In fact, best thing for me is no more rushing at all!
