Yesterday Weston came home at 12:30 so that I could take a half-day off from my job as a mom. Which was much needed. Wednesday night was rough... Sawyer basically spent the entire night climbing on me and crying because he doesn't feel well (his nose is stuffy) and he is still teething (I think, he won't let me look in his mouth) PLUS he is getting ready to walk. The perfect storm.
The first thing I did was run to JoAnn's and sign up for a cake decorating class. I've been wanting to do that for a while, and the dates (in December) worked out with my schedule, so I went for it. I also picked up a few things to finish up stuff for Sawyer's party.... then it was off to my massage. I had never had a massage before. Weston had given me a gift certificate for one for Christmas, and I just got around to using it! It was SO worth it! I loved it. I wish I could do that every month. (But, at $80+tip, it is a bit out of my price range!) So relaxing and a nice break....
After that I took myself to lunch and just enjoyed some time alone. It was nice to eat a meal and not have to pick anything up off the floor or have to listen to banging utensils, etc.... There was a baby there that was a bit younger than Sawyer, and seeing her made me miss him... so I headed home.
So I enjoyed my mom break. I am going to try and take more time for myself, even if it doesn't include a massage... I find that I am much happier to spend time with Sawyer if I get a break. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
