I'm Back


Monday I got back from visiting my mom, and let me just say that I had a great time. I didn't realize how much I could use a little retreat until I actually got there. It didn't take long for me to relax and settle in. I'm really grateful to my husband for staying home with the kiddos so I could do this.
So...details. I'm sure you'd love to hear details. I'll start off by saying that my mom really spoiled me rotten. Seriously. I was expecting to just go and have some time away and chill out but, I wasn't expecting anywhere near what we did. I was treated to a mani/pedi, a hair cut, some shopping, and an a deep-tissue massage! The Massage Therapist actually came to my mom's house and did the massage there. It was amazing. It was really special because those are things that I don't normally do. In fact, the last time I had a mani/pedi was for my birthday from my mom. I felt really special and loved. It was also great to get some one on one time with my mom. Since we moved, we haven't gotten many chances to see one another so, when she called and said she'd like to fly me home, I jumped at the chance. I'm really thankful for the time we spent together, and I'd love to do it again...maybe annually but, I told her she didn't have to spoil me like that every time. It's enough to just be together. (even though the pampering was fun).
It would take a massively long post to tell you about all that we did over the weekend but, I'll be nice and keep it short.
I was glad to be back with my family on Monday and I think (hope) they were glad to be back with me. So, it's back to life and hopefully some more regular posts.

Have a great weekend!
