Today I had a whooping 8 hours to myself! I know, very unheard of in "Mommy world." I left this morning around 8:00am and didn't get home until a little after 4:00. Part of me wanted to keep driving to enjoy the quiet, but the other part was wondering what was happening at home. Yes, the kids survived and no one was emotionally scarred because Mama had some adult time. What a good feeling!
Isn't it amazing how our minds work though. We Moms are so used to being with our children and attending to our daily errands with them in tow. When we do have a bit of time alone, we think about them. I guess it is just part of being a Mom.
At one point today I didn't know what to do first, I had the freedom to play my music in the car. I had the freedom to stop where ever I wished. I had the freedom to eat at an "adult" restuarant and not fast food. I felt like a free bird!
When I was stopped at a light, the people in the car next to me must have thought I was crazy. I was laughing so hard because I played a song I like over and over. When my girls do that, it drives me crazy. I guess I know where they get it from.
I hope ya'll have a great weekend. Enjoy some time to yourself. You deserve it.
