Friday...are you here, yet!?

I'm impatiently waiting for you. I honestly feel like I have no right to complain because Nate has been a pretty decent baby. I get to stay home and in my pajamas if I want. I am not being forced to go back to work. I get to take a nap if I need to. But the past two days have been ROUGH.

I thought he was okay from the shots, but apparently not. He has been so cranky and whiny! Part of me feels bad because he feels bad and part of me feels bad for me because I'm annoyed and cranky. Then since I feel annoyed I feel like a horrible mom because it's not his fault. WTF!?

I know babies cry. Most of the time I'm fine with it. I even think it's somewhat cute. But crying for an entire day is something else entirely. It gives you a headache. You can't get stuff done around the house. You can't take a nap.

So tomorrow I am taking a half day. I'm going to get a much needed hair cut. I'm a firm believer you need to take care of yourself to take care of your loved ones. I know once I have that 2 hours to myself I will be a completely new person.

The only thing I am not looking forward to in tomorrow's plans is doing a living will. That is just scary and sad.

So, Friday at 12:30...I am looking forward to our date.

How often to you need a "break"? What is your favorite "me-time" activity?
