Sometimes even if it's a vacation day, it doesn't mean that there's nothing to do. And just because it's a vacation day, it doesn't mean that everything will go smoothly and easily.
This is exactly why God created ice cream. More specifically, this is why God created ice cream sundaes.
Jus take a nice bowl. Add a scoop or several of your favorite ice cream. Top that with some (leftover) macerated strawberries. Top that with some chocolate sauce. Top that with some roasted peanuts. And finally top that with a smothering amount of whipped cream.
Then be nice and get a second spoon for your DH so he can share some too.
Really, it doesn't make the day better or anything like that, but it sure tastes good. And you just can't top that.
