Weekend Off

My husband and Charlie went out of town for the weekend. I had the rare luxury of a free weekend. Every minute was used wisely.

I did all those things that were part of my pre-baby life. I slept in, read for hours uninterrupted, took a long shower, cleaned the house at my own pace, visited the neighbors, went for a walk, star gazed, and ate really delicious leisurely meals. I enjoyed having time and space to myself.

However, I must admit… As enjoyable as these couple days were, I do miss Charlie. I am ready for her and her dad to come home.

What do other moms do with their alone time?


A picture from Charlie dozing off earlier today, sent to me from her dad.

    Yesterday I realized that my life has drastically changed even from when Stephen was a young ‘un: I went by myself, thanks to my husband, grocery shopping for a handful of items…and I was able to browse in the wine aisle for 15 whole minutes. And it was a treat.

    I think I picked a couple good ones! 😀
