Work

April 5, 2010

I do need a bit of a break. Benjamin has been in full blown terrible two mode for a few weeks now, and it’s been tough – really tough. I’ve reached my breaking point way too many times. So, if she really can make it until Friday, this will be the longest time we’ve ever been apart.

Not sure if I can make it until Friday, but I feel like I have to … have to allow myself a guilt-free week of fun dinners out with friends, shopping and sleeping – lots of sleeping.
