I love my husband.
After spending all day at the aquatic center in Trail, B.C. yesterday, I was worn out this morning. We didn’t even go to church. I used the excuse that two of the boys had the beginnings of a cold, but since Kevin was staying home with them, I could’ve gone. I opted to be lazy and do nothing instead. Well, not really nothing – I did clean the kitchen and start some laundry.
Then this afternoon Kevin decided to take the kids fishing at a friend’s house. Without me. I got to stay home all by myself. I spent the afternoon watching the Seahawks dominate the Giants, crocheting, reading, and relishing the alone-time. That doesn’t happen very often.
Time alone for us moms is important. It doesn’t have to be a lot – just an hour, an evening, an afternoon. I end up feeling rested and am so happy to see my family when we are reunited.
Even if they all smell like fish.
