Little Miss Momma: Home Alone and it feels so...weird

Home Alone and it feels so...weird

Home alone.

For the first time in longer than I can remember.

A list of "To Do's" a mile long--and now's my chance to cross them off without a toddler grabbing my ankles or the hubby asking me where we keep the dish towels for the 30th time this week {love you hun}.

Laundry.

Clean out the fridge.

Answer emails.

Vacuum.

But there's something oddly paralyzing about the emptiness and silence of my home.

Something that has me wandering in circles in and out of every room in my house--instead of getting to my "list".

I only have a few hours before the hubby and kiddo get back, only a few hours to get as much done as humanly possible.

But I'm lost.

Maybe I should just let "the list" go for tonight.

Maybe, just maybe I'll take some time for ME.

Hmmmm. What should I do?

Read a book, paint my nails,go on a run {yeah right}, take a bath.

What to do, what to do...

Hey I know, how about one of those green masks I used to do all the time before I was a Momma--that used to be fun!

Yep, I think I'll try that...


And then I'll take pictures of it...


and then I'll blog about it...
and then I watched Sweet Home Alabama.


 Because that's productive.
And because people really care.

Maybe I should have just done the laundry.

Ha, ha, ha. You are just too funny. I have to admit, I would end up doing something very similar. Being alone in my own home would be a dream come true but I'm sure I wouldn't know what to do once I had the peace. Good for you for having fun with it.

Green masks are pretty much where it's at.

This was great. You actually made me want to go and slap a bunch of green gunge on my face and slob out in front of a chick flick. Ah, for more days alone!

Happy sits Sunday!

Love the post! Also, I consider taking care of yourself the most productive thing a momma can do.

I just discovered your blog a few days ago, and I stayed up way past my bedtime (which is whenever my 4-month old decides to go to bed) laughing and crying my way through almost all of your posts. I absolutely love reading your blog. I'm a new mother, but me and my husband are also still in college, hoping to graduate within the next year. Even though we don't have the same exact struggles, it's still nice to read about a new-ish mom who is overcoming obstacles as little or big as they may be. I think you're an awesome mom, with an awesome blog. You have definitely inspired me to take my blog more seriously. So thank you for the laughs and tears, and I would have done the same thing if I was home alone ;)

I love your blog!! Youre so real!! I was the same way the other day when all three kids were at my friends house from 9am til 3pm. it was a very unproductive day. I was LOST.
