The Best Day Ever…Sort Of…

I love President’s Day…not because I’m all that patriotic…but because it’s a holiday for me but not the boys! I’m off work and they’re in school and daycare

Yeah, I had to get up early and get them dropped off…but I came home and took a nap…a looooong nap…longer than I intended…and then I rolled out of bed and started my day…

I took myself out to lunch…I wandered through Target (I love Target)…I went to Ross’s – the best discount clothing store around…I can’t shop anywhere else anymore because I feel like I’m paying way too much…and the best moment of all was sitting on a park bench, leisurely eating my frozen yogurt, feeling the breeze in my hair, and people-watching…a moment that was all about slowing down and enjoying the moment…

I’ve driven through town with the windows down and the radio up (I think I was a dog in a former life, with my head hanging out the window – I just love the feel of the wind in my hair)…I’ve wandered stores, feeling sorry for the parents of cranky children and feeling thankful it wasn’t me…I’ve spent time with just me, myself, and I – and loved nearly every minute of it…almost…

Today was also a day when I had to face some hard truths…I’ve fallen hard for someone…and I’ve fallen into old habits…when I care about someone, I give everything I am…I give 150%…I give more than I ever receive…and even though it hurts, I decided today was the last time I would allow that to happen…I had to accept that either he feels the same way or he doesn’t, but I can’t make it happen…it has to be mutual…so I don’t know whats going to happen now…maybe everything will be fine, maybe it won’t…but I won’t let myself go down old roads, especially when I know exactly where they lead…

It really was a great day…and I hope there are more just like it somewhere in my future…

About Michaela Mitchell

A few things come to mind easily when I think of myself - a mom, a friend, a daughter, a hard-worker. But there's so much more to me - and I just have to discover what it is.

  1. Glad you enjoyed the day! Our kids had off, but we still had to work! How does that work? 🙂
