break day

thursday pj day


after three days of sick kids hacking up lungs around here, two of the days being confined to the house with no car and rainy weather - i was going a little crazy. thursday and friday, tim wasn't even home for dinner/bedtime so they felt like the longest days ever.

yesterday, i went to a tupperware day-long conference and left tim on his own with the kids. while i would have loved to be spending the day away from the kids doing something more fun than sitting through training and such, i never would have willingly left them just for fun. but i'd paid for the conference so i went. what a difference in my mood when i got home at 6pm. i didn't think i was that grumpy or anything but after being gone for 9 hours, i was so happy to see them, felt much more patient and happy to play. it's amazing what a difference getting a little break away can make. but i'm happy to be getting a family day in today. :)

Sometimes a change is just as good as a rest, hey? I'm glad you got a break from mommy/nurse duty for a day. Hope those kiddos are feeling much better this week!
