A Date With Myself

Jeff is out of town until tomorrow night. It's remarkable how difficult it is doing things on my own- realizing where he fits in regularly. I miss him. Teagan misses him. Zach... doesn't notice. Teagan has been calmed by doing activities or eating meals we wouldn't do with Daddy home. Or things we haven't done in a long time. Tonight, once we get Zach to bed, Teagan and I are going to make cookies. We had dinner out with Aunt Christy Thursday. My friend Latifa spent the morning with us today. And tonight... I am taking myself on a date. An at home date, of course. But I'm feeling the need to indulge a bit. Work had me pretty darn stressed this week. Zach is cutting a molar so he's cranky. And Teagan is 4. Enough said, right? So I bought some brownie mix. And some mini bottles of wine. And I might even order an on demand movie- if anything strikes my fancy. I will put in laundry (that's hot, I know). And I might do dishes. And then I will put my feet up, enjoy some much needed chocolate, and imbibe. I might even put out!

Y'know, I don't even have kids to exhaust me, and that sounds like a pretty awesome evening to me. I'll bring the wine if I can come over!

Sounds like fun. Although you should be able to do those things with Jeff home. Especially, put out! :)

Sometimes for "me" time, I'll put my laptop on the edge of the bathtub, soak in a bubble bath and watch one of my favorite shows online.

Enjoy your date!

Put out? Mama's ready for fresh batteries!

I had a night without Adam this week (he went to Brisbane for 2 days), I put the kids to bed early, settled in on the lounge with a pot of chai tea and read my book. Was good. But I didn't get any, apparently I was too tired and I had a headache and....*snore*

Hope you had a good time. I always joke about it when people say they are "dating themselves" but I never thought that someone would actually do it. Way to go.
