twiddling thumbs

happy weekend, sweet friends!
max is away for the next few days and it always leaves me feeling a little out of sorts. 
i've changed clothes 15 times today for no good reason at all...i missed my exit while driving and instead of turning around i just kept driving aimlessly for 30 minutes and found myself in line at a thrift store buying a dress that i've already worn and changed out of.  
 it's funny being a mama and daydreaming of weekends all to myself...and when i get them i'm completely helpless and uncomfortable in the skin of such a quiet house.
i guess it's a sweet little reminder of who i am deep down.

the weather is bucking up around here and i'm planning on digging in my garden this weekend! i'm bound and determined to make the most of my time.

let us to the weekend!
i hope yours is full and wonderful. 


  1. I know exactly how you feel. I miss my husband so much when we're apart. I'm a new reader to your blog and have been enjoying it immensely. Can't wait to see your garden "after".


  2. right now my son is sleeping over his grandparents and as much as I love time to myself, all I want to do is wake him up and bring him home.

    have a lovely weekend!

  3. i understand exactly what you mean. i yearn for 'me' time, and when i get it i am so lost!

  4. i know what you mean! the last time my hubby took the boys to his parents for an overnight, i got nothing done from my "to do list", just watched bad tv, and then cried tears of joy when they walked through the door. i thought i was crazy...glad to know perhaps i'm not!

  5. So happy to read this! I thought I was the only crazy Mama. I even go as far as signing my girl up for Parents Night Out at the local YMCA...totally affordable and centrally located. I daydream about dreamily sipping on a latte or cappuccino, while drawing, reading, or wandering in a shopping area aimlessly without her tugging, "Let's go Moooom." And then what do I do? I don't send her. Same thing with summer camp. I have come to accept that I can only accept being without her in small doses. And that is okay for now. It won't always be this way. And yes, it is who I have become...since she was born. Blessings and hugs to you. Enjoy the gardening and some down time.

  6. you take such beautiful photos my dear.
