Today I went out alone, without the kids or John. I'm still getting over being sick, but my wonderful sister-in-law offered to give me a facial at the salon she worked in so there was no way I was turning that down. She said I was doing her a favor because she has to do some "practice" facials before they let her take clients on, but really she was the one doing me the favor. I felt so relaxed and wonderful afterward. I then went to my favorite antique shop and looked around, then I got myself a coffee and called Heidi up and went looking around in shops with her. After I dropped her off I looked in some more shops downtown and then got some food and went home. It was so refreshing to get away, thank you Kimberly for the facial, and thank you John for watching our two sick kids for a few hours, you made this mama's day.

sounds like an almost perfect day! I'm glad you got to go out and relax on your own. I know how stressful and overwhelming it is to watch two sick kids alone. hope they will feel better soon.

I know you're not doing The Artist's Way group with us...but hey, girlie, you just had yourself an artist date!

P.S. Guess where we went yesterday? To Sacramento! (Eeek...if you knew how much I avoid 'real' church, you'd know how big that is...ha!) ;)
