I thought having a day all to myself would e fun, but it was not even near that feeling.
I guess it’s really different when you have a family of your own. Everything revolves around them. My husband told me one night that I deserved a “Me time”. So he told me he would take the kids off my hands for a day. He told me to pamper myself, go shopping, have a massage, and have my nails done. I was a bit excited at first. It’s been months since I had a “Me Time” so I agreed. He simply smiled at me and told me to enjoy my day with myself.
I went shopping, but not so much. As a mother (and I know you will agree with me), we always think about budgeting. Other than that, I found myself buying something for my family and not one for myself. My husband was surprised when I went home early. But from the understanding look in his eyes and the way I embraced him and my children when I got home, I think he knew why already.
To make up for the lost time, I made sure to make them a really good dinner. I made chicken penne casserole, which was a favorite. Making that casserole while my family was in the living room was far better than my “Me Time”.
