Rest, Relaxation, Rejuvination, & Retail Therapy!

Whoo hoo!!!  For the first night in six weeks, I got a FULL night's sleep.  I did not have to change a single diaper, make a bottle, change bed sheets after an accident, scare a monster from a closet, or wake to a snoring husband.  What a night!  I feel refreshed.  Many thanks to my fabulous MIL & FIL who have my children.  I tell ya, without them I sure don't know what I'd do.  My MIL is my angel.  She has no fears when it comes to keeping her grand children.  She loves 'em and I love her for it.  What a lucky girl I am.  Now, I think I'm going to brush my teeth (yes it's 1pm and I haven't done so...gimmie a break I slept 'till noon), get dressed and do a little bit of shopping.  I need to get the kiddos some winter clothes.  The days are getting cooler and they're bigger than their clothes!  What's on your agenda on this beautiful fall Sunday?!

How wonderful that you had an opportunity for some much needed rest and relations! Kudos to your MIL and FIL for giving you this break ;--)
As for what I'm doing today ... I'm trying to 'catch up' a bit with everything that got neglected last week.
Hugs and blessings,

I'll give you a hint as to my Sunday activities: it starts with an "L" and ends with an "aundry."

That sounds wonderful. No kids, no diapers, lucky you.

I shouldn't complain. That is a plus of being divorced your kids go visit their father on Saturday nights.

I wish I had some shopping therapy. I NEED some winter clothes. The kids are set but I'm lacking.
