Where do you hide?
I have no idea. We are so cramped in our house. I don't really have a special place to hide. When we lived in Fort Wayne, I loved to go down the street to a locally owned coffee shop. They had an awesome turkey/guac sandwich. Some coffee and I was a happy mama. But here, well we really do live in the middle of fields.
I don't really get to take off and do too much stuff just because. I do get to run errands on my own usually. So the grocery store, or hobby store even. But I try to hurry back, because I know how much of a handful our house gets when you are alone.
I think my only alone time is at 5 am when I drag my butt onto the treadmill. I am usually ok, unless one of the kids wakes up early. Then it's a constant watching out into the garage to see what mom is doing. Or requests for hugs....or asking what I am doing.
Some days I wish I could hide a bit more, but I remember that this is the lifestyle we chose. And even when I am exhausted and barely able to stand anymore.....I still love them all. And look forward to the next time I feel like getting on the treadmill!!!
