Last Saturday, Scot gave me the day off. Bless his heart. He woke up with the kids, got them fed and dressed, and took them out for the day.
I slept in till 9 a.m., took a leisurely shower and cranked up some get-up-and-go music while I got ready. I couldn't believe I had the whole day to myself.
With no breakfast, I ate an early lunch at this little coffee shop and ordered the best-and-only mushroom melt I've ever had. I thought I'd try something new and it was delish! I had no diaper bag, no food to cut up, no little mouths to feed. I just sat and read while I ate. It was divine.
I had some shopping to do, so I headed to the mall. I found a pair of silver wedges to wear with my purple dress for Scot's employee-of-the-year dinner next weekend.
I did some bra shopping - which I've put off forever.
I had fun trying stuff on and not buying a thing. [Anyone else do that??]
I got a caffeine hit at Sonic. Gotta love happy hour!
And ended my day shopping up and down every aisle at Target - including the women's clothing section.
It was an awesome day. Something I never would have done if my hubby hadn't planned it himself.
After today, I learned three things:
1. My husband is a rockstar. [They went to lunch at a restaurant, he let each kid pick out a toy at the toy store, changed diapers, ran errands...with 3 kids in tow. I am amazed.]
2. Having alone time is refreshing, good for the soul. Cherish it, no matter what you do.
3. Mother or not, every woman needs a day like today.
