So Sunday after church, Tim checked me in to a hotel about 45 minutes away from home and I got to have a 24 hour getaway by myself! I went to my room and was greeted with this in the bathroom:
I changed in to my swimsuit and headed down to the pool. I laid out for about 2 hours. During that time, I fell asleep at least twice! It was amazing!
After that, I showered, did a face mask, plucked my eyebrows, and tried new hairstyles I had seen on Pinterest. I ate sushi for dinner and went to bed at 7:30!
I woke up about 9 the next morning, ate breakfast, got ready then began heading back home. It was wonderful to get several more hours of sleep, spend a little extra time getting ready, and do everything at a leisurely pace without anyone tugging on me!
Tim said he could tell a difference as soon as I walked in the door. I could definitely tell that i was refreshed and could handle the things that normally stressed me out with a little more grace and patience!
I told him that I might need to do something like that every 6 weeks or so. After all, for the price of an "Oh, I just need a few things" trip to Target, I got an experience that is allowing me to be a better, more attentive mom and wife! I definitely recommend a night away for all of you tired, frustrated mommies!
