Today I had a first. I went to a movie all by myself. I know, lame. After noticing that I had spent 6 straight days with the kids without a break, Chris suggested that I escape for a little while and go see the movie I have been anticipating since I read the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I willingly obliged and the movie didn't disappoint. I loved it! But, the best part about the entire day was the feeling when the movie was done and I was driving home. I felt rejuvenated and was really looking forward to spending time with the kids again to eat birthday cake and put to bed.
We all need breaks every once in a while to remind ourselves what it is we get to come home to. And for this, I am thankful.
