So, yesterday I took the day off from work to run errands. My little man turns one Sunday and we have his daycare party Friday and his actual party Saturday. I finished running errands, threw I a load of laundry and a load of dishes. I was about to sit down and work on some other things but then I looked out the window. No one was at our neighborhood pool. That never happens on a warm, sunny day. Never. So, I put on my swimsuit, slathered on some sunscreen, grabbed a towel, sunglasses, some water, our pool key, my house key, and my earbuds and me and my friend called iPhone went to the pool.
Doesn't that water look nice? Do you see the sun haze in the photo? It was warm. Really warm. But it was so nice to lay poolside for an hour, on a Monday especially, and just listen to my old school 90's music (is 90's music old school?). I only had an hour because I had to go pick up little man from daycare.
I felt guilty for not going to pick my child up early. I felt like a bad mom for choosing to lay by the pool instead of running to get my child or doing more housework. But, I let all that go. I needed to relax. I haven't truly relaxed since little man was born. I haven't had a night out in what seems like forever. I needed a little me time. And, I got it. And, it. Felt. Good.
