Griffin is spending some quality time with his Dad. This weekend, he gets to spend some quality time with his grandparents, and I get to spend some quality, adults only time with my husband! Wahoo!
An entire week without my baby is a LONG time, the longest we've been apart...I'm going to miss the hell out of him, but I feel like this is going to be a good thing for all of us. I feel like I come home from work and give ALL my spare energy to the wee one. I have nothing left for me, and nothing left for Steve either. Missing a little bit in the balance department maybe. (Ya think??)
We ALL needed this holiday. Griffin especially needs a few days to learn that he can in fact, despite all evidence pointing elsewhere, survive an ENTIRE EVENING without his mother. I need a few days just to breathe......
So, I'm breathing. I'm blogging. I'm doing crazy things like SITTING DOWN in Starbucks to drink my coffee, instead of hitting the drive through. I haven't driven my car in over 24 hours, and won't...until Friday. I am watching the trashiest of the trash TV that you ever could imagine. (Seriously, have you SEEN this show? It's like a train wreck that you JUST. CAN'T. STOP. WATCHING. Plus it's interspersed with trailers for my boyfriend's newest movie [yes, that's him, right there on the splash page.])
I feel good.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, and to seeing my boys again...right after a few more lattes!
