My Silent Retreat

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!

  1. Awesome! I hope you share how it went. I went on a silent retreat to a monastery a few years ago and it was life changing for me!
