A Night for ME

When I read that title aloud I realize just how self-centered, selfish, and (forgive the term) "yuppie" it sounds. I am a MOM, I LOVE being a MOM, and furthermore I love being a Stay-At-HOME-Mom. The truth of the matter is, that being called to the vocation of a SAHM does not automatically give you all the strength you will ever need to never be by yourself again. We all need our "recharge" and I have seen lately where mine has been lacking. Hence my post seeking good reading material for some quiet time.

Well Friends, I did it! On Tuesday evening I went out right after dinner all by myself to Starbucks with book in hand. I resisted the urge to announce to everyone, from the barrista to the women's book study beside me, that this was my first night out in a long time, and that I have a wonderfully supportive husband at home with our Baby. I ordered a fancy-schmancy drink, settled into an over-sized chair, and read for almost 3 hours! Pure bliss.

*Hint for Starbucks Fans: Buy a gift card, go online and register the card with your info. That cheap refill I talked about then becomes a FREE REFILL! No Joke! You can refill any beverage as a coffee, tea, or iced of either (normally 50 cents) as long as you're sitting in the store. Also, when you register by July 14th they send you a coupon for a FREE BEVERAGE of your choice. Check it out! I'm always on the lookout for free stuff, especially in the form of treats!
