Girls just want to have fun!

Last night I went out with the girls.  Alone.  No husband.  No kids.  And it was dark outside!!!!  And it was my IDEA in the first place.  I'm expanding my comfort zone and it's amazing.  I know that my kids and Superdad are perfectly okay without me being home for a few hours and even days at a time when I traveled with Vaseline. 

But me making plans and sticking to them to get out of the house for a few hours is hard for me.  Thankfully I have very understanding and caring friends that understand this about me.  *smile*

Last night we met at this awesome restaurant for drinks and yummy food.  We laughed, talked, laughed, talked and laughed a lot more. 

Sometimes you need a recharge with your girlfriends to make you whole again.  Having those drinks and amazing food recharged me emotionally.  I wasn't having to me a mom or a wife, I could just be me, Michelle.  I enjoyed my meal while it was still hot.  I didn't have to cut anyone's food but mine.  I didn't have to keep a constant eye on the kids, help them eat and make sure they didn't bother other people in the restaurant by being loud. 

I enjoyed two caramel martinis, an appetizer, an amazing burger and carrot cake for dessert (with coffee) all in one setting.  It was A M A Z I N G ! ! !

It was just what I needed.

To do:
Make more time to go out with my girlfriends.
