I took a bath.


On Friday night, I took a bath. I took THAT much time out of my schedule to actually take a bath. I took a bath with a BOOK, none the less.

I needed some me time. Something I rarely do for myself is take a bath. I don't think that actually sitting down and relaxing in the tub is that much fun when you have kids knocking at the door telling on each other.

MAAAAA! He won't get out of my room!

MAAAAA! I want a snack.

MAAAAA! When are you coming out??


This time the only knock that came to the door was followed by I LOVE YOU.

How can you get mad at that?

But my point is, with Hubs deployed, this is maybe the secong time that I have actually taken an actual bath in the actual bathtub. I musta been in there for over an hour. And you know what? It felt REAL good to say, "FORGET about the kids!"

Good for you! I think the last time I took an actual bath was when I was pregnant with Lily, 3 1/2 years ago!

Oh how the little things can seem like everything! The live of a wife and mother. I wouldn't trade it for the world though. Glad you took some time for YOU!
