Time For Mom
I’m pretty much convinced I have no idea what I really need. Here I was all week whining to B how I needed a good solid 4 hour block to leave the house and go do some lesson planning. I was looking forward to just hitting up a Starbucks or Barnes and Noble and curling up with my laptop some spiral notebooks and 4 separate grades of Waldorf….sounds like heaven to me.
Then I facebooked my status ya know like most of us do and within a couple seconds I had a fellow homeschool mom offering to meet up with me. GASP human interaction outside of the frat house? Alright let’s go for it!
And so I did. I still took all of my planning stuff just in case I got to that.What it turned out though that I really needed though was not so much time alone to plan,but time with another similar mom to refresh myself.
We sat there and talked for close to three hours. The lady behind the counter had to give us the 5 minute warning that they were closing.
I came home happier and more relaxed then I have been for awhile. I thanked B,who had nicely waited up for me,for helping me take time for myself. Then I went to bed.
When’s the last time you got out to just visit with a friend?If you haven’t for awhile I strongly encourage you to take some time to reconnect.
