Today I got to run away from home for an hour. This past week was a long and hard one... two sick boys and Ki I think is allergic to sleeping at night! Yesterday I asked Michael if I could run away from home for an hour and he being very gracious agreed. This morning I was able to take a shower all by myself and used up all the hot water, all be it in a twenty minute shower but it was nice to not have anyone (Zeke or Ki) in the shower with me. I was able to get out of the shower and get dressed without having to referee the boys. I was able to blow dry my hair and brush my teeth in peace! Ahh the simple things. Then I got to run away from home. I had to take back the string cheese we got from Costco last night because I wasn't paying attention when I put it in the cart and I got the variety pack, so I took that back and then went to the library. I was kind of bummed because the book and movie that I was really wanting to get were both checked out, so I got different ones. I will say the book seems to be a decent one, I am only one chapter in but am enjoying the new author.... Michelle Wildgen. I stepped out of my comfort zone of Karen Kingsbury, Lori Wick and Nicholas Sparks and got an author I have never even heard of before. I know this seems like an insignificant thing however for me it is pretty big! I am all about my comfort zone and my tried, true and tested things (like when we go to a resturant and I don't even open the menu because I order the same thing every time... I "opened the menu" at the library and am actually enjoying my new choice!) So now I am off to read, or watch my movie - I haven't decided yet which I am going to do.
