Do you ever just feel like sneaking away for an hour or two? Just to get out of the house, gather your thoughts and clear your head?
Sometimes, once little E is in bed, I find an urgent reason to get out of the house. I'll spend hours just browsing a store just to have some quiet time alone.
We are all out of rice milk! I just have to whip up to the health food store! I'll be right back!
I think I need one of those tonight. Maybe I'll visit some home decorating stores or just go to a hardware store to get some painting supplies. But I'll make it last and I'll go up an down the aisles dreaming about all the big ideas I have on a tight budget.
I'll need to execute a sneak attack where I rush out so quickly that Hubby has no time to even think about intervening.
Before the Christmas break, I snuck out of the house to pick up some craft supplies and told Hubby I would be in an out in a flash. His response was, "This isn't going to be one of those - I'll be right back - that turns into an hour is it?"
Darn, he's caught on to me!
Like I said, tonight is going to require a serious strategy.
