One of those weeks...

My 6-year-old daughter has been sick for almost one week now. This week has been rough. I need a break. Anyone ever had one of "those" weeks? 

Tomorrow is Thursday, and Heath is usually home on Thursdays for 3-4 hours before he leaves again for band practice.  So, I asked him today to check his schedule and make sure he didn't have anything going on so I could leave for a while when he gets home tomorrow afternoon. I told him, "I don't know where I'm going or what I'm doing, but I'm going to leave when you get home and I'll be back in time for you to go to band practice." 

He knows from time to time I just need out of the house. But, not just out of the house, I need to be ALONE!!!!!!

So, maybe I'll go to the library and then to Starbucks to get a warm cup of goodness and read my newly checked out book. 

When you get some alone time, how do you like to spend it?

I am right there with you on a trip to Starbucks with a good book. I know I'll be ready for a trip like that by Tuesday night. Seth is gone every night this week, has the National Guard this weekend, and another meeting Monday night. Tuesday is the first chance I will get to go be alone. I think I might just do a trip to Starbucks then, if I'm not clinging to him for some hubby & me time!
