My mother-in-law had recently begun to pick up my son from the babysitters on Wednesdays. It started as a way for my husband and I to both be free for an evening together to work on the new house. Now, there’s little left for me to do at the new house. Even so, she seems to want to keep her Wednesday night date and I am happy to let her.
Tonight was the first night that she did it that I am took the time for myself. I had a hair appointment, and then I had to stop at the small specialty grocery store. The rest of the time was spent cleaning the bathroom, doing laundry, and prepping the guest room for our weekend visitor. It wasn’t exactly a thrilling evening, but a little alone time was nice for a change.
