What is your perfect day? I can think of a lot of “perfect” days that involve my husband and kids, but by myself? Not so much. It’s been too long since I had a day alone to even remember what would make it perfect. As a wife and a mother, you rarely get time alone. I mean, like in 11 years! Oh, I get moments or even evenings or afternoons alone, but never full days. This weekend I had my alone day and I’ll confess it felt a little weird.
My husband had a friend in from out of the country, so he met up with him about 4 hours away and they took all the kids to a baseball game. Guess what that meant for me. I got to stay home. Yippy!! Yep, that truly hasn’t happened for me in over a decade.
I found myself thinking of my kids and also kind of feeling guilty, but oh how I enjoyed it! I decided to go all out and make it a day of favorites. Here’s what I did.
I started the morning with my favorite drink, coffee.Felt like a hipster riding downtown in my husband’s jeep with the top off.Did a little shopping at the local City Flea with a friend.Then my favorite lunch.Relax time with this little guy.And last but not least, one of my favorite movies and a cocktail.Can you guess the movie? Yes, guilty as charged.
Ah, this is the good life. But,… I did get excited when I saw those little faces and one big face walk through that door approximately 36 hours later.
What would you do on your favorite day?
To life feeling like home!
