Sooooo, yesterday was amazing. I love my kids, but goodness, sometimes a mom has to get a little alone time…and mine was glorious. I had the entire day. Like everyone was out of the house at 7am and I didn’t get home from dinner until like 11. It was incredible.
Started my day off with some miles.
I spent time alone…in our house…alone. No cleaning…only working on art. Be still my heart.
I jammed to loud, catchy inappropriate music which I usually have to turn because of the young kiddos typically riding in my car. Not yesterday.
I got my hair did.
Ate lunch alone. Word.
Got a massage. I wanted to stay forever under those warm blankets in that dark, relaxing room. Sigh.
I had like a 6 hour dinner and drinks with a sweet friend. Such yummy food. We indulged. Pot stickers and shrimp skewers were up first.
Next was fried okra with super delicious dipping sauce and then 2 plates of sushi.
Laura Kelley Fun Fact #401 I’ve never eaten sushi…ever…until last night. It was amazingly good. I might even have it again on Saturday night. Is my life changed? Maybe.
It was such a good day. All moms everywhere need a day off every now and then. I’m a firm believer that one of the best things you can do for your kids is to take care of yourself and your marriage first. So much easier said than done, but when a free day is presented, you grab it and run like crazy. Enjoy it. Make a plan. Don’t feel guilty, feel special and loved. Your kiddos will survive without you. And you will be sooooooo glad you did it.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
