Today Is a Glorious Day!
Jason goes on many a fishing trips and camping trips with the guys. A while back I remarked how we as women don't do that and pondered why!? Is it the mommy guilt of leaving the kiddos behind? Who knows...
But today folks, is a Glorious Day! Because when Jason gets home I am heading out to "girls camp". Yup! We're doing it! Daddy's your time of duty is upon you! 10 women stealing away, one camp for three, count them THREE nights!!! That's right folks. I plan to FULLY indulge in all kinds of luxuries that one sacrifices once our blessed children arrive. Things like staying in bed as long as I dang well please...eating my food first...drinking my coffee while it's hot...reading when I want for as long as I want...starting AND finishing adult conversations with NO interuptions...going out and about not planned around naptime and not weighed down by snacks, diapers, wipes, drink, and the 10,000 blessed toys, blankets and animals my sweet child always wants in tow...driving in the car for an extended period of time without listening to, singing along with and doing hand motions to all the children's songs!
Please oh please don't get me wrong. I LOVE my little Ella. And I will undoubtedly miss Jason and her like crazy. I LOVE being a stay at home mom. I think there is NO more important, rewarding job on the earth and I feel so fortunate to have the means to be able to do that job full time. But there is NOTHING wrong with investing time in ourselves and in our relationships with other women. Oh how we need that refueling and refreshing! Oh how we need that time to remind us who WE are apart from "Mommy". Oh Joy of all joys! What a fabulous weekend this shall be!
