My closest girlfriend (friends since before we could drive) and I, have a date this weekend.
We’ve been talking of doing a girls day for a few months, just the two of us. No husbands, no kids, just us. Usually when we get together with our families we have a ton of fun but it only happens a few times a year because we’re separated by a few hours drive. What to do, what to do….
We decided we need to shop. We need cocktails. We want at least one meal we don’t need to cook or clean up. We want to wake up, when we wake up.
So this is the big plan: We’re going to THE CITY for the weekend. We are meeting for lunch, we are shopping, we are having cocktails, we are staying in a hotel room together and we are not setting a wake up call.
I’m really looking forward to it. I’m pretty sure I’m also really going to miss the little hugs and kisses and book reading to my 2 and 4 year old in the evening and my friend will miss her 3 kiddos too. However, it will be rejuvenating in the way only a little personal time can be. Please, my only other time alone is a 5 minute shower every day and even then I hear tiny voices of ‘mom, mom, mom!’ through the door.
I’ll miss it, but I’m really looking forward to the weekend. Maybe we’ll read each other Goodnight Moon.
