Time Out for Mommy

I made arrangements for my kids to spend the night at their caregiver, Nouzhie's house tonight because I had a work conference in the evening and hubby is out of town on business. Nouzhie has a small in-home Montessori child care that both of my kids have attended since they were infants. Seesa is now at Preschool full time, and Milly goes to Preschool two days a week and Nouzhie's the other three days. They both have "spent the overnight" there before, and just love it. It's like a kid vacation for them.

So, my work deal was canceled, because market conditions are taking so much of every one's time and energy. Yah, you got that right.

Did I cancel the overnight for my kids? No, I did not.
Do I feel bad about it? No, I do not.

Mommy needs a TIME OUT. Big time.

What do I have planned for my luxurious night off you ask? Absolutely nothing. Quite possibly, I will simply sit and stare at the walls.

When the kids were leaving this morning, I said "Have fun spending the overnight at Nouzhie's!".

Seesa replied "Have fun...(pause)...have fun by yourself!".

You got that right baby!
