|A giraffe that also plays the drums? It's just too much to handle :)|
This week I had a baby sitter come for the first time. It was so weird pulling out of the driveway. But I did it. I went and had lunch at Panera by myself. A greek salad, a turkey sandwich and a Sprite. By myself. It was a teeny bit life changing. After my meal, I walked to a bookstore and browsed, then ran a few more errands and was back before Abi even woke up from her nap. Let me repeat that: I walked to a bookstore and browsed. Sweet Hallelujah. Seeing how much I needed those two hours was wildly eye opening. I'm an introvert at heart and having zero alone time can really derail me. When I returned I felt refreshed, rejuvenated and like I had been filled with endless amounts of energy to dedicate to Abi.
In fact, after she woke up, we went on a walk... for an hour. She loved it. I loved it, and with my large Chick-fil-a tea (with crushed ice) as our only companion, we had quite the time.
Speaking of getting in the car and going... please tell me you've seen this. I cried laughing both times I watched it... Seriously. Hit play.
