Today I went out by myself. I had a “me” time. My husband stayed home with the baby while I was doing my store visits in the mall.
While driving, I was day dreaming. Yes, I admit it…but still watchful and careful. I am so thankful for the opportunity that was given to me – to learn how to drive. I have been driving my car for more than two years now. And I am very satisfied with how it runs. It does better with Shell gasoline. I noticed that.
You know it feels nice to get out of the house by yourself once in a while. Wandering around town or go to a spa helps you unwind. In my situation, I need to or else I will be depressed. As a full-time and first-time mother, everything changed. My lifestyle, my travels, my schedules…everything. And because of the high gas prices, I do not go out as often as before. I only take my baby to the play area for at least once a week. Other than that, we just stay at home. So my husband and I talked about my “me” time. He is not keeping me from going out. Actually, he tells me “Go somewhere honey. Get out of the house once in a while. You need it so you won’t get nuts.” My husband has a good sense of humor. He’s so funny.
And so once every weekend on his day off, I go out. Sometimes I meet up with friends and have a girls’ day out. Then when I come home I feel much better.
