There are some days i just want to do nothing. Nothing being no interaction with anyone, like, lie in bed and read my book, for as long as i want, then maybe go back to sleep again for a while. Or sit on the couch in my pjs, stitch and watch boxsets all day. I reeeallly miss those days sometimes. Dont get me wrong, i love my boy and am privileged to be a mum but there are things from my "past life" i miss LOL. We have our vegging out days but its not the same you know.... it still requires interaction ;-)

Today i got some me time. Matthew took Caleb to church and i stayed home. I went for a 25minute run, i had a long shower, i bought a Sunday newspaper and sat with a cup of tea and read it. It was BLISS. I needed that. Then i got a text from Matthew to say Caleb was going to his Grans for a couple of hours after church yeeehaaaaa.....however, we're gonna make the most of that time and try and blast through the rest of the painting of Caleb's bedroom. We are in the midst of decorating to get our flat on the market. Painting everything plain old Magnolia. Its a drag. My place is a mess. But it needs done.

Did i mention the inlaws from Canada will be descending on us soon?! Yes, they are. Joy of joys.

Im very moany today but it's good to vent. Now to drag my butt into that room to paint.

p.s. so sign of my nephew yet. That's my sis a week overdue!

It's good to have 'me' time. I'm glad you enjoyed your today :-)

Good luck with the painting and renovations - its such hard work to get a property ready for sale.

Ahh me time is so wonderful isn't it.
That is my plan for today. I am "Not today and maybe - not tomorrow". Think it will help.

Here's to vegging time... even if one spends it going for a run and painting. Good luck with everything, especially the guests.

Oh poor girl, all mine were late so can sympathise. Still, gives you longer to work on the sampler. Glad you got some off duty time and hope the painting is going well. Off back to US on Wednesday to pack up the house, groaning loudly!

I understand completely!! I have those days too. I think we need them for our minds to recharge. We are just so bombarded with interactions and activities on a daily basis that the result is almost like being shell shocked. When I drive home from work there are some days I don't even want the radio on. I just want silence.
A day like you describe can make a world of difference. When I started to feel that way I used to make arrangements for a day to myself. It helped.

I hope that you are feeling better. I have had many days like that lately, but it was great you were able to have some time to yourself.
