I’ve been having a hard time of late. The children’s constant attention and needs are very demanding so I was released from my motherly duties for two hours yesterday afternoon. My hubby came home earlier from work and volunteered to watch the kids. So. . . where did a mother of five go when she had two free hours to spare. . . . ALONE?
I went to a local coffee shop to read. I sipped coffee and read an interesting book on adoption. . . . . ALONE.
After some time I got hungry so I walked next door to a Greek restaurant to eat some Greek food and watch a little bit of Greek music videos. . . . ALONE.
Even though I don’t understand any of the spoken words since “it’s all Greek to me,” (please. . . laugh with me. It’s a pun) Greek music videos are as ridiculous as American ones. After a while it was just funny to me. By the way, did I mention that I was all ALONE?
Finally my ALONE time was up because I needed to return home to nurse my four-month-old.
When I finally got home, I was surprised to see two good friends having dinner with my family. After the children went to bed, we had a good time chatting and catching up with life.
I really needed that break and it was indeed refreshing to be able to go out all ALONE. I think I can make a habit of this time ALONE.
