I love Tuesdays.
I love them.
Each and every Tuesday my husband comes home at 12:30 p.m. and stays with the girls until I pick Jacob up from school. I leave the house ALL ALONE. I go wherever I want. I drive in a car ALL ALONE. I get a cappuccino to drink ALL ALONE. Did I mention I am ALL ALONE from 12:30 until 3 p.m. every Tuesday?? :) My amazing husband is so thoughtful. I am blessed. I never do anything spectacular with "my" time....usually just browsing at the library, or walking through a store with many breakable things. Those kind of things are so much easier to do without baby hands reaching and wanting. It is enough to deal with MY hands. :) Yesterday I had errands to run....the post office to mail eBay stuff......the CAP office (our 'goodwill'-type store) to drop off a load of outgrown baby clothes and then the scariest stop of all --- WAL-MART just a few days before Thanksgiving. WOW. It was crowded, but it didn't matter because, did I mention I WAS ALONE???? :)

Now, some might read this and think that I don't like my children. Every MOM reading this, however, understands EXACTLY how I feel. I adore my kids - most of the time I just want to kiss them to death. :) I love them MORE after I have some time away from them. Make sense? I knew it would.

Happy Thanksgiving.....isn't God so good to us?
