No, not a blogging break, I think I’ve had enough of those….
My kids are giving me a break by going to Grandma’s for the weekend. I enjoyed a blissful night of quiet last night wherein I refused to do anything. (Well, I made supper, but that was it)
I didn’t realize how desperately I was in need of some ‘alone’ time until last night. I couldn’t even get up the desire to go for a run, sweep a floor, fold a shirt….nothing. I was even too tired to play on the computer. (Now that’s exhaustion!)
I’ve got a huge “task list” to accomplish this weekend and I’m hoping to have a big city runaway too. Might be possible, but if it seems like it will be more stress than it’s worth….I guess I’ll just stay home. The fact is, I don’t really need anything. A new pair of runners, since the new ones I just bought put my feet to sleep…but really don’t need stuff.
The children however………..need everything. 2 pairs of shoes each, adjustable waist pants for Eric, socks, t-shirts, winter clothes (I know it’s August, but I bought a Columbia winter parka in Minneapolis on July 1st), boots, school supplies and on and on.
I know I should take them. I should. But I fear there is too much to get in one trip & I need to think about each item. I don’t know about you, but my guys are more the “grab anything” shoppers, not the “let’s carefully choose each item” shoppers.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. This break is just what I needed.
