A Whole Night To Myself.

Last night my DH took my boys to a motorcross event of some kind. They invited me, but I politely declined. As cute as the boys are when they are excited about mountain biking/dirt biking/bmx biking, I had a much grander idea for my evening alone. LOL

I made them an early dinner, packed their backpacks, gave them a kiss goodbye and then closed and locked the door.

I had an evening of being completely and utterly alone. I had a bubble bath, lit candles and had a robust glass of red wine. It is amazing how relaxed I felt, I felt like I was floating on a cloud. I put on my cozy jammies and came downstairs. I made myself a chicken sandwich and read a book.

I was lazy. I did nothing. I had a mental health evening. I watched The Notebook and cried like a baby.

When they returned at 10:30pm, I tucked my little babies into bed and gave my husband a big kiss. I needed that evening. I feel refreshed. I feel ready to do battle again.

Once you become a mother, I think it should be mandatory that once every couple of weeks, you get a night of complete and utter relaxation. I think it would make for much happier mommies.

That sounds great! The Notebook is evil. It was made just to make women cry. Sometimes if just feels good, though, doesn't it?
