I don't get a lot of "me" time. I love spending time with Joey and the kids, or hanging out with friends, so I'm rarely alone. And truthfully, I don't need a lot of "me" time. But Friday, some "me" time was sort of forced on me, and let me tell you, I took full advantage!
The kids were spending the night at my parents and Joey was at work, so I was looking forward to not doing much of anything. I tried to finish up my weekend chores on Thursday so I wouldn't have that looming over me and I would truly just be able to relax.
And relax I did!
I came home from work to a nice, quiet house and poured myself a glass of wine.
I went back and forth between wanting to just grab some take-out so I wouldn't have to cook or going home and cooking something I really loved. Ultimately I decided to cook one of my favorite meals, Skinny Taste's Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos. And I was not disappointed.
I took my wine and tacos and settled in on the couch to catch up on my DVR. Dallas, actually.
Evidently Trigger was looking forward to a quiet evening at home as well.
I didn't let him rest for too long, though. After dinner we headed out for a nice walk around the neighborhood before calling it a night.
A glorious night.
There may be something to be said for this "me" time stuff.
