I have always loved my alone time. In fact, that was the biggest struggle for my hubby and me the first months of our marriage. Since then, he’s learned to give me my space and I’ve learned not to need quite so much time to myself.
Now that I'm a mom, my alone time is pretty much zip.
HOWEVER, about once a week my hubby decides to take the baby with him while he runs an errand. It’s usually a quick trip to the grocery store. He knows I appreciate it, and he enjoys the daddy and daughter time.
The problem is it only lasts a short time.
You see, my sweet husband is not one to stock up on groceries. He rarely buys more than he needs for one meal. That means my solo time is really only about 30 minutes.
This week I got smart and asked if he’d pick up just a handful of things for me. Sucker.
Here’s the list I sent him with:
• Candied ginger
• Reduced sodium beef bouillon granules
• SoftSoap Peach Ginger refill
• Bendy straws
• Marshmallow cream
Have you ever sent your husband on a wild goose chase to get some time to yourself?
