Sometimes, you just want to get away from it all. I don’t think you should feel bad for it either. One day, as I hid in the back of my walk in closet, stuffing a Chik Fil A chocolate chip cookie down my throat as my 6 year old wandered around the house looking for me, I decided I needed to get away from my family. For
their safety my sanity. If you remember from my Thanksgiving post, I decided to “take a break” from my family and dined with my mother for Thanksgiving. And then spent the night at a hotel. It was a nice experience. Not something I’d like to do every holiday, but it was a good change of pace.
After having my 4th child in March, I decided that I needed to have more frequent escapes from my lovely family. So, my mission (if I choose to accept it) is to get out and enjoy life. How good can I be to my family, if I am no good to myself. Shuffling kids all over, breastfeeding a newborn and keeping my marriage intact is a lot. Not to mention I have a full time job. So, I’ve put my girlfriends on notice and the word is out. We’re getting away from it all.
Join me as I try new restaurants, museums, and other local attractions. Some excursion may be as little as an hour, while others could be several days. Hey, I may even let my husband tag along on some of these, but NO KIDS! That’s the catch.
