When the opportunity arose for me to be able to work Tuesday – Saturday, I jumped all over it. It was going to be an extra day home with my little guy, and I work from home on Saturday. Like how much better could it get? Not much – so like I said, I jumped all over that.
But yesterday was my first day off. And you know what I did with it? Whatever I wanted. B was sweet enough to tell me to just take a day, and to not feel guilty about Sheffield being in day care. He even took the car seat to work with him (instead of leaving it at the day care), because he knew that I’d feel guilty and end up going to get him. Just a reminder that even us working moms need a day every now and then – and yes, of course I missed him. But having a sane mommy is probably good too, right?
Anyway, with my morning, I went to a coffee place in Homewood I’d been meaning to try, called Seeds Coffee. I got the nitro cold brew, and this stuff was strong, and I mean STRONG. I jittered my way through a solo trip to Target and through doing dishes when I got home. So good though.
When I got home, I caught up on Pretty Little Liars, and then texted B to see if he wanted to do lunch. Luckily, he did and I got to try out another new place, Trattoria Centrale, downtown. B is a pro at ordering lunch downtown, so we both got the two slice and mixed green salad combo – we each had one piece of salami, and one piece of pepperoni pizza, and my mouth was in pizza heaven. If I ever had to choose between pizza and tacos, I’m not really sure what I’d do. They also have daily specials, and B said I need to come back on Thursdays – ok, twist my arm.
I rounded out the day with a viewing of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and a sweet ass nap. Of course, these Mondays to myself will not be a regular occurrence, since the main reason I took this schedule was to have more time with little boo — but today, today was really good and really needed. If anyone knows of any super fun things to do with kids on a Monday, please let me know – I’d really like to get him out and about since *fingers crossed* the weather is about to get awesome around here.
