Well, we had two days out of school last week for snow days, but today was a balmy 70+ degrees and a sunny sky. Such bliss! It's supposed to be fairly nice all week, but I know the cold will return before winter is officially over. Still, just this one day did an amazing job of lifting my spirits.
I got a day out on Saturday with a friend of mine - no kids! It was so wonderful, even though all we did was go to Target. I found some cool things and I picked up a copy of "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert that was recommended by our own Kenju over at Imagine What I'm Leaving Out.
I am only on page 107, but I am enjoying it immensely.
I've had a bevy of interesting things to read lately and that makes me happy. Even if it's just a magazine in the mail, I love stealing a bit of time to myself to take myself out of my head and get into someone else's.
Tomorrow and the next day, I have some time off to myself. I'll have Sissy here, but as of today, The Evil Twin is back at work (after 16 days off!) and it'll be Buddy's first full week of school after the holidays, snow days, etc. I have many little things I need to work on.
I love my family, but I am a loner and always have been. I enjoy my "me time". Having the baby around doesn't count because she's no bother really. Either she'll help me do my stuff or she'll find a show to watch or a toy to play with and stay out of things.
I love having little projects!
