I just recently started working part time and I'm loving it. I never thought I would look forward to going to work, but it means I get a much needed break, a clean desk that stays clean and isn't cluttered with toys, and I have some space to show my talents other than being a mommy!
So, what I do almost every morning now is to stop by the Barnes & Noble near my house and take a few minutes to browse the books, order my favorite drink (iced green tea) and sometimes even a breakfast muffin and then browse some more. I leave 30 min. before work so I can do this...it's heaven!
I feel like a free adult...it's not alot, but this little "outing" in the morning makes me feel so good and starts my day off with some "mommy downtime" and some goodies...it's just a little piece of heaven in my crazy four kid circus life! :)
