A wonderful and MUCH NEEDED gift!!

Yesterday, my fabulous friend Cassie called and asked if I had plans for today. I told her I didn't and so she said she and Shanah, another fabulous friend, were going to kidnap my girls for the day so I could do whatever I wanted!!!! REALLY????!!!! Could it be true...some time JUST for myself??? This couldn't have come at a better time. Both girls have had sleeping issues lately and so I've been very sleep deprived which doesn't help with all other aspects of my life at this point. It was JUST want I needed.
So this morning, knowing my girls were in very capable hands...I set off to run a few errands that were MUCH easier without two kids in tow. And then I came home and had an uninterrupted nap until these sweet ladies brought my girls home. It was heavenly, to say the least. Although, the entire time, I had feelings of guilt for leaving the girls, combined with feelings of relief for not having them with me....and then more feelings of guilt at feeling that relief. It's a vicious circle!! But it definitely rejuvenated me. So thank you again Cassie and Shanah, you both are wonderful!!

You're one lucky girl! Do they come to Tucson? I could use a day of napping and uninterrupted errands. I'm so jealous!

I'm glad you had a few hours to yourself! You should NOT feel guilty whatsoever...you are an amazing mom and every mom deserves a little break. We'll have to do it again, it was fun!!
