Me Time! Oh How I have missed you!!

So, at 6PM, I heard the sound of the garage door closing.  I was alone.  My husband, son, and daughter had just gone to a high school football game.  I had that moment where I wondered if I should have went too.  I thought part of me was going to regret that I didn’t go, but the other part of me–the tired part, the exhausted part, was just so thankful that FatherWinter was fine with taking Honeybee as well.  Truthfully, I had not thought of him taking her, but not complaining that he had.

It was Superbug’s first high school football game and the guys were sure to have a great bonding experience.  As they walked out the door, garage door descending, I debated about what I should do next.  Should I see a movie?  War Room was released and I really wanted to see it, but that was a movie I think I’d like to see with FatherWinter.  With a little work, I might be able to convince him to see it with me.  I thought about going out to grabsome Panda Express and some red velvet cupcakes from my favorite cupcakery.  But, and isn’t this horrid, I didn’t want to drive.  Truth be told, I just wanted to chill. And that’s just what I did.

I ordered my favorite pizza in the world that I never get because FatherWinter hates the brand. I got my special garlic cheese sauce.  I grabbed my cheese sticks.  I had it delivered, which is a no no, but I was exhausted.  The delivery guy delivered it and we had a wonderful albeit conversation about faith. Then, after eating to my heart’s content and cleaning my mess, I went upstairs, popped on the television, and watched nonsense until I fell asleep.  It was great.

The family came home about 11PM.  I didn’t move even as they settled into their respective areas.  I simply rolled over, adjusted the pillows, and fell asleep.

I don’t get me time often.  But when I do, it’s more than enjoyable to me.
