Lots of happy sighing around here today. . .
It was my morning to drop Harper off and have three glorious hours to myself. First, I sat alone in a coffee shop and wrote for an hour -- the equivalent of a mental bubble bath and massage. Absolute bliss as far as I was concerned. Then I ran to the store and picked up a few items without stopping to look at the fish or birds or hamsters. Finally I came home, unloaded groceries, and went to the bathroom all by myself. And I didn't even have to call out, "Harper, what are you doing?!" I also listened to a little NPR and read some of my book club book.
To top it all off, Andrea said Harper was well-behaved, which means I'll get to do this again next month! (I do have to say, the three hours goes much faster when you're the one without the two-year-olds.)
Then tonight I had my last graduate class for this quarter. I handed in my final and stayed just long enough to collect my grade and leave. No class for two weeks! And between now and the first class of next quarter I'll be in Mexico for five days.
And I'm even feeling better.
Now I'm off to have very sweet, stress-free dreams.
