How Can You Miss Me If I Won’t Go Away?!

I got up this morning, got dressed and ready to go – only to get a text from BFF at a few minutes before our approximate departure time saying she wasn’t feeling well, didn’t think she could make it on the trip today. Waaaaaah. I texted back, “Okay.” She texted, “Going to take Tylenol and see how I’m feeling.” Text back and forth awhile. Decide instead of road tripping it, we were going to stay local, but still get out of the house.

And we did for a few hours. But, I’m bummed anyway. It’s hard when you are home every day – and there really is no break or relief from your life but to actually get out of the house. If you are a mom and are typically on “mom duty” than even when you are home and considering yourself “off duty”, well, you know that ain’t gonna happen. Mom is mom, right?

We were able to get out for awhile and Hubby took the kids out for awhile, and now that we’re all home, I admit, I’m somewhat hibernating in the office, far away from everyone. Out of sight, out of mind is what I’m hoping for. I don’t dare head downstairs before dinnertime, lest I somehow get roped into cooking it. Remember, I was supposed to be out of state ALL DAY. Me jumping in to help was not going to be an option.

Hubby sounds pretty annoyed – I can hear the kids whining from all the way up here. I’m not jumping in. Going keep hiding…

  1. Put your iPod on, and lock the office door. That’s what I’d do ! 😉
