So do you ever want to yell at the top of your lungs to your kids to "SHUT UP!!!!!"? No? Yeah....me, neither....totally not...ever. Just kidding, I know you do. ;) And I do, too. That's why it's important for me to leave them every once in a while. The last time I left them Levi was just 16 months, and I was weaning him.
As the story goes, Michael came home from work, and I said, "I don't want to be a mom anymore." So he sent me to Austin to a spa and spiritual retreat center for 4 days. It was so awesome...and so freaking expensive (that was pre-Dave Ramsey brainwashing). So this time we're scaling it back, and I'm going to a Catholic retreat center for a silent retreat. No spa, but I can jog to my heart's content!
I'm really looking forward to it, and it couldn't have come at a better time. When I registered for it, I didn't think I'd be ready to leave the baby, but he's pretty much weaned now (yes, I cut it early - don't hate). And I am SO ready for a break.
I'll be gone from Thursday night to Sunday, so I'll be unplugged from the internet! Yay!
