I got home from work and sat on the couch. I didn’t rush to daycare and I didn’t have to make sure dinner was put on the table. I freshened up and went over to my friend Mack’s house. We had wine, Thai food, chatted about everything and only talked about Isla a few times. I was very proud of myself. I still was home and in bed by 10:30. I can’t be too crazy now. I still had to work in the morning.
I woke up at 7:45am….say what?! Yes, I woke up with just enough time to throw on some makeup, down a cup of coffee and brush my teeth. Oh and put on a nice blouse and a pair of pants so I could at least pretend like I was put together. I didn’t have to worry about looking after anybody but myself. I am pretty sure that when I left, Dana was still in bed!
After work, I picked up some groceries, made myself dinner and then sat in the back yard most of the evening, sitting on my swing and reading my book….did you hear that?! Exactly! Nothing but my own thoughts and a good book. I won’t get use to it but damn it was nice!
I managed to get my butt out of bed a bit earlier, shower and I sat down at the table and drank my whole cup of coffee while watching the “Today Show”. It was heavenly. Our dog Marley even got a morning walk!
