I took the kids half way to meet Jeff's parents on Friday. From that point on, I have been a new person! Is that even okay to say?
It was a much needed break, I will say that. For the first time in over 3 years it was a possibility for me to sleep in without having to get up to pee or pump or nurse. That, alone, was pure bliss. Everything else was just icing. I am officially spoiled. I need this just about as much as I need the air I breathe.
We are going to pick them up today after church, and I must say that I am not nearly as excited as I know I should probably be. That might be in large part due to the fact that they both have colds, and are a wee bit miserable. So of course I feel a small bit of guilt too for being away
I baked and cooked...both were yummy!
I blogged in peace.
I did a million loads of laundry (seriously, where do all these clothes and towels even COME FROM?!)
I watched two movies (another post entirely in and of itself)
I hung out with friends!
I hung out with a few of my small group girls.
I slept in twice (kinda)
I played Celine Dion (and is still currently playing) and sang at the top of my lungs and danced around my house in pure joy.
I spoke to about 80 young men (on a panel of course) about purity and marriage. (interesting)
I went shopping and got some incredible deals at GAP OUTLET. (whew, thanks Kara for that 30% extra off.)
I did nothing, and then everything I needed to.
No one needed me or wanted me (Jeff was gone all weekend, by the way)
I can't really think of a better way to have spent my weekend, although I am a wee bit ashamed and embarrassed about my lack of time in the Word. But, alas, I did talk with God...and I know he was with me!
