Brand New Woman

Can you hear my sigh of relief?  I needed that little vacation even more than I realized!  

Normally, I'm a planner.  Especially when I'm going to be away for any length of time...I'll write down every schedule, snack preference, and activity.  I'll have meals planned and stacked in the fridge and freezer.

But this time?  It was more like "Gotta go now.  Bye.  Love you.  Good luck!", and I was out the door.  And they all did just fine without me.  Better than fine, actually.  Made me wonder if they needed me at all.

Everyone needs a good whack with the humility stick from time to time, I guess :)

I had a wonderful time with my family in Wisconsin.  We haven't spent time like that without husbands or kids since any of us were married...12 years!  It was so peaceful.  And quiet.  And relaxing.  Ahhh...

And now I'm back ready to do all sorts of laundry, housework, paperwork shuffling, photo editing, hugging, reading, snuggling, and playing.  And now, instead of feeling frazzled and frantic, I'm actually having FUN doing all this stuff.  My wonderful little family...what an incredible gift!

Wow, that is great! I would love to get away....I am afraid my husband would resent that. Has your husband done the same thing ever? I am sure you are a better mommy for having a break!

Isn't it so true that if we don't take care of ourselves how can we take care of our kids? Now I need to follow THAT advice.;-)

SO glad you had a good and renewing time.
