Sometimes all I need is quiet. I don't get to experience that at home. Given the events of the last few weeks, compounded by some other things that I'm not wishing to detail publicly, I NEEDED quiet. So what did I do with my quiet time? I slept (a lot), read, watched a few movies and shopped. I didn't think about my problems. I made it a point to completely shut everything else (90% of the time) and it was fabulous.

What did I learn during my "quiet time"? (That kinda sounds like I gave myself a time out. Ha!)
  • No matter how crazy I feel at home, I miss my kids when they're not with me.
  • I have an amazing husband. From Thursday evening (when I left) to Sunday evening (when I got home) he played Mr. Mom and took a vacation day Friday for me.
  • I love New York City. It is AMAZING. Prior to the weekend my favorite city was Denver. Yeah, I'm leaning more towards NYC now (no offense to my Colorado-lovin' friends cause Denver ROCKS!).
  • Sleep is NOT over-rated.
  • My children truly are my world.
  • And finally, I love my job. It's the hardest job in the world to parent but truly the most rewarding. Money doesn't compare to the dinosaur hugs (as my son calls them) and kisses galore from children that adore you.

    I think me time makes us better wives and mommas. And it also DOES make us appreciate what we have more.
