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