Much Needed R & R

Friday was a day that will go down in history as an exceptional day in the life of this hard-working mama. My parents had been desperate for some solo Lucas time so Abel met them half-way between our house and theirs on Friday morning before going into work. That left me at home alone all day Friday.

Let me repeat: home alone all day! Is there anything a mom dreams about more? (Well, yes a few things, but this ranks pretty high up there!)

Obviously there were 101 things I could have done around the house to be productive but I decided to give myself a much needed pass. A pass on the entire day. What did I accomplish between the hours of 10am and 5:30pm when Abel got home? Well, I read more than 400 pages of the 3rd Twilight book, ate lunch and took a nap. What else? Hmmm...absolutely nothing. Seriously. I don't think I've been so relaxed in, oh, 3.5 years.

When Abel got home we ate dinner and went to see The Hangover. We laughed like crazy. What an awesome day.

  1. Good for you! I ended up having an R & R day on Friday too. I took the day off, intending to work on house projects, but I ended up spending the entire day finishing book #2 and starting book #3. I couldn't remember the last time that I laid on the couch and read a book ALL DAY LONG. It was heaven:).

  2. sounds like my kind of day! Wasn't Hangover absolutely HILARIOUS?!

  3. Good for you for relaxing on your day off! You can work any day. :)


Comments make my day. Thanks!
