I'm back..with my smile

It's funny what three hours alone in Wal.mart and Mei.jer can do for the soul.

  • No "bench" carts (aka grocery store semi-trailers)
  • Leisurely viewing of the all the aisles, not just the ones on my list
  • Return to previous aisles for forgotten items without protest from said bench cart passengers
  • Did you know how relaxing it can be to pick out greeting cards?  Alone?  Usually, it involves all of the new-fangled sound cards being opened.  At one time.  Accompanied by loud laughter.  
  • I actually was able to fit all my groceries in the cart. Not on top of children.  Or strategically placed around, under or behind children.

Although I usually balk at going to the grocery store at night, it was one of the more pleasant trips I've had in a long time.  I think the Hubs knew I needed to run away for awhile as soon as he got home.  He walked in.  I ran and hugged him and said I was so glad he was home.  He looked at me with those beautiful blue eyes a-smiling...."Need to get away?"   l love that he knew. I love that he let me go.  And now I'm back.  A bit more refreshed, ready to visit family, the lake and hang with my kiddos.

I'm with you, girlfriend. I'm with you.

It's gotten to the point where an ob-gyn visit by myself is a treat. And that's just wrong. :)
