I have to tell you that my big boys were out of school Thursday and Friday for parent/teacher conferences. And my husband is out of town with the military. So by last night we had all been in the house with no breaks from each other for 3 days. I tried to work on projects and my boys tried to "help" with those projects.
I was talking on the phone with my sister last night, and I think she just recognized a mother who needed a break. She said "hey, why don't I come get the boys and we can have a sleep over!!" At first I thought "No, I am fine" (shhhh don't tell anyone but, I have a hard time accepting help...don't tell) Then I thought "hey why not".
I used to spend time alone all the time. I like it. I have been surrounded by my little people so long that I have forgotten how much I enjoy being alone.
I did a little shopping (for more projects), I finished a quilt that I made for my niece yesterday, I watched TV, it was great.
I think that it is good sometimes to let someone else take the reins and just do me for a minute. You know what else... I miss my kids!
Spending some time alone made me a better me!
Thanks for coming by and looking, feel free to leave me a comment. I am just hanging out!!
