Retreat




















I love my Little Dude more than ANYTHING in the entire world!  Buuuuuuuut  I would be lying if I said that I didn't look forward to and relish every second of the 48 hour break I get (two times a month) when he goes to stay with his dad.

Of course it doesn't take too long for me to miss the presence of his charming self (the messy array of toys around the house, the owies and the bandaides, the tantrums, the hugs and kisses and the 700 questions a day), but I also realize how important it is that I take a breather for a minute and just be me. Two days.... twice a month.... equals a perfect retreat and I feel rejuvenated already :)

Whatever you're doing, I hope you are HAPPY!!

  1. I used to have those same conflicting feelings when my kids had visitation with their dad. Nice to have quiet, but hard to be in the quiet alone. It's a great time to rejuvinate the soul and a way to be *that* much more there for him when he's home!

  2. Sadly I only get those rejuvination times sporadically since their father lives out of state. It is exhausting trying to be "everything" to my two children, but when I get that break, yes!! It's glorious. I love my mini staycations!!

  3. What will you do during your two days? I can't imagine how hard it must be to have your little guy gone - but you're right - sometimes you really do need a breather just to re-set your buttons.

    Lots of relaxation your way-

    1. Kendall...

      Usually I spend time with my manfriend... golfing and doing fun stuff like that :) Oft times I will try to get caught up with my errands and cleaning too. It's taken me a while to get used to Little Dude going away, but since it is what it is, I've learned to embrace it ;)

      Thanks for the relaxation... lol... I used it :)

  4. I get this luxury either once a month or once every six months (depending on when his dad can see my little guy) and as guilty as I feel to relax... It's refreshing and feels nice. This year I'm hitting Florida while he's with his dad for two weeks and I'm kinda stoked!
