Over the weekend Roger went out of town
and my parents offered to keep the boys one night,
which meant I had a much needed night to myself.
I was a bit fried from the intensity of the holidays.
Having everyone home from work and school
for two weeks was nice in theory
but really it just means more work for Mama.
I'm not complaining, I'm just saying
that when it was time for life to go back to our routine,
I needed some "me myself time".
I did what any red blooded mama
would do when she has a night off.
I drank cheap champagne out of a tiny bottle,
ate dark chocolate,
and worked on the second draft of my novel.
It was like heaven.
Other activities not shown from my solo night....
*A trip to see the movie "Her"
where I ate buttered popcorn for dinner.
*A hot bubble bath with lavender candles
while I listened to Tori Amos.
*Reading People Magazine on the couch.
