If just for a few hours
  1. I can't leave my Mom unattended these days.
  2. Almost every week I have the awesome Brittany come and spend some hours with Mom
  3. Usually my husband is here and is all like "what do you want to do"?
  4. I was single and living on my own almost uninterruptedly since age 18 until age 45 when I got married.
  5. Two years later we moved my mom down here
    She was beginning to show signs of dementia.
  6. So today husband had to be at work. He called in a panic, "is our Brittany coming? What do you want to do? I may not get there till later".
  7. I had an entire afternoon to myself.
  8. It was PURE heaven.
  9. I got my hair trimmed.
    So overdue
  10. I got a pedicure while I read a book.
  11. I also read a part of a magazine while at pedicure place.
  12. Then I had a two margarita lunch.
  13. And every moment was awesome.
  14. I LOVE being alone.
  15. And I realized that solitude, which I used to take for granted, is something for which I am now starving.
  16. I love my husband. I love my mom.
  17. But I think I love me alone too.
  18. Let's do this again 😀
