Much needed "me" time
I had so much fun today. I was able to shop and think about what I was looking at. No kids trying to touch things that will break. No million questions about everything. No yelling "Quit touching your sister, quit looking at your sister, quit hitting each other, no were not getting that, no ...no ...no dear. Ahhhh it was just silence. I was able to enjoy my coffee. I was able to walk anywhere I wanted, no need to avoid things. I was actually able to think clearly. I even was able to stop by Whole Foods on my way home and shop a little. Finally found a deodorant that would work for me, all natural hair gel that smelled good, and even picked up some foot lotion. No words were said. Just me and my lonesome. I went home, cleaned my kitchen, and watered the garden in silence. No music or tv either. It was nice. Really really nice. And the best part was when my husband came home with the kids. I wanted to hug them and tell them how much I loved them. I was happy to see them. It felt like the really nice mama came home. I really need to get away more often without the kids. Once a month would be just fine with me. You hear that hubby? Just checking.
Don't get me wrong. I love my kids so much. But sometimes its just nice to get away from them and have some "me" time. My "me" time is not the norm. No pampering for me, no nails done, blah blah blah. My best friend and I have so many things in common. Driving around looking at old houses and property is one of them. Walking around in small shops and markets is another. Trying new food and looking at one of a kind items is our favorite thing. Today we did every single one of those things. I have many many more pictures that I want to share with you. Lots of front yards, drive ways, and front steps. Ahh it was a good day. Thank you Dulbs. You really made my day. I'm so glad we met and became best friends. You truly are my bestie. I love you.
What about all of you, what do you do to have "me" time?
