Today I left the house by m-y-s-e-l-f. Did you get that? Read the last two words again - by myself. I ran errands, browsed the homeschool section of the library and perused the clearance shelves at Target without having to worry about another human being.
No one had to go potty.
No one wanted a drink of water.
No one asked to go look at the toy section.
It was an hour of heavenly peace and quiet as I wandered about and thought of nothing in particular. Not answering 2,897 questions in the span of one hour was a relief to my weary brain.
Window shopping at Target = free mommy therapy. Hmmm...maybe I need to get out more.
