I love Tuesdays! Why? You ask? Well ever since I can remember, over the past 4 years, my gracious MIL takes the boys EVERY Tuesday (unless she is out of town or sick). This has been such a gift to me! I look forward to packing them up and getting them out of the house - is that wrong for me to admit? Oh well, I just did! HA! Most Tuesdays, I try to get stuff done that is more difficult with 2 kids running around your ankles, usually laundry or grocery shopping. Sometimes I go window shopping or head to the coffee shop to work. But this Tuesday I did something that I rarely do...
I TOOK A SHOWER!!!
Okay, okay, don't fret! I take showers regularly. But this past Tuesday, after doing the bills, I was sitting staring out of our bedroom window at the deluge of water that was raining down, contemplating the rest of my day. It was too soggy to go grocery shopping, or do anything that required actually going outside. So my thoughts headed toward doing the laundry. But unfortunately for Jeremy (since he didn't have any underwear clean - TMI?), he laid flooring down in the kitchen Monday night and I was technically not allowed to walk on it for 24 hours. And since I have to walk through the kitchen OR go outside and through our garage to get to the laundry room, I decided that I didn't *want* to ruin the new flooring ;-).
So as I gazed out the window, it dawned on me. I could take a shower. You know moms - A SHOWER - a shower "like before having kids" shower! A long, care free, hot shower. A shower that didn't require having one ear out of the shower listening for screams or thuds. A shower that didn't have little fists banging on the bathroom door. A shower that didn't have little voices in a monitor screaming your name.
An all out, CARE FREE, I can take AS LONG AS I WANT, hot, long (water wasting), stand under the nozzle until your skin is red kinda shower!!
And if that wasn't enough, after I took a shower, I jumped into bed and watched daytime T.V.!
It was AWESOME! And even better, I didn't even feel guilty about the laundry or the dishes. I just enjoyed the pampering I gave myself.
What have you done recently, just for yourself? I would definitely recommend a shower ;-)!
