Deep breathe in and deep breathe out.
Do you hear that??? Shhhh
It’s the silence that is in my house right now.
Mommy has a day off!!!
And it’s not even a full day off. Never is. It’s not just me myself and I. DH will be joining me soon because he gets off early. But for this short time, it’s all me.
I have been in desperate need of time to myself. My little buddy boy has been very much on level 10 each morning. When I get home I just want to fall in the bed. It’s like I’ve just been existing but not really living.
As a Mom we need days just to recoup. I have a lot to do in the house and I want to pray and meditate, do some cleaning, catch up on the dvr, blog…many things to do, most of which probably won’t get done. The good thing is… I have three days to get things done instead of two. And when one of those days is a school day for the kids it’s an added bonus.
I have my coffee in hand, buddy boy’s clothes are ready and in a few short minutes I’ll wake him up and get him off to preschool. Then I’ll head to Sam’s Club for a few things and come on home and RELAX!
I’m going to relish in these hours to myself : )
And then I’ll enjoy my time for just me and DH before it’s back to reality.
