Tomorrow is Veteran's Day, which means I have a day off work in the middle of the week. Wednesday is also the day Mackenzie and Addison stay with my mother-in-law, which is pretty much the only time she gets to spend with them on a regular basis. So....I decided to do something I have not done much at all since the girls were born....I'm going to have some ME time.
When they get up in the morning, I will be taking the girls to NiNi's house, then coming back home to spend several glorious hours ALONE. Am I a terrible mother for being very excited about that?? (Just so you know, I'm kidding-I'm actually a proponent of getting a little time away every once in awhile!) I have left the babies with family to go shopping or run errands, and Jeremy and I have been on a couple (as in TWO) dates since they were born, but truthfully, I'm pretty sure this will be the first time I have had a few hours to myself with no expectations of getting any sort of task accomplished and no plans to be anywhere.
What am I going to do with this blissful, unscheduled time? Most likely, I will end up back on the couch, in my pajamas, watching some tv. (Hard to believe that less than a year ago, I spent an entire day on the couch watching Bones for 14 hours straight) I might even get ambitious and watch one of the netflix I've had laying around for going on three months now. If I'm not too busy being incredibly lazy, I might pick up a long-neglected craft project that I haven't had a chance to work on since the girls arrived. That probably won't actually happen, though...I'm pretty sure I will be a couch potato all morning, and I will enjoy every single minute. Sometime after lunch, I will go get my babies and I will kiss and smooch and squeeze them because I missed them SO MUCH all morning long. : )
What would YOU do with a day to yourself??
