Lately I've been feeling a little blah. I know when this happens and it usually happens for one week--no matter what month it is. I hate it. The laziness. The inability or just lack of motivation. I wish so much for those weeks to not happen, but sometimes I think it's my body's way of telling me to slow it down a little.
And breathe some more.
On Sunday afternoon Leo could tell that I was in need of a little just me time. Nobody to talk to. No timeouts to be given. No diapers to change. No dishes to wash. No thinking required.
And he was right on point with that.
I threw on some makeup. Fixed up my hair and kissed the girls and the husband goodbye.
Once my car door was closed I swear it was as if that is all I needed. A little bit of peace and quiet. I sat there for a moment and soaked it all in. And to be honest? I kind of liked it. Just a little...
Don't get me wrong--I love my family to pieces. But I really needed to just be alone for awhile. To remind myself that I am still "me"--and that "me" needs to be out sometimes.
I decided to go to Barnes & Noble. I got there and it was so quiet. I got a nonfat chai tea latte and a piece of pumpkin cheesecake. Grabbed a gossip magazine and just sat. By myself. No interruptions. Nothing.
It? Was truly what I needed. After I bought a few things--to include the best cookbook ever and a book for each of the girls.
Because although they were out of sight? They are never out of mind, that's for sure.
What about y'all? Did you do anything to regroup and to get a little bit of well deserved peace and quiet this weekend?
