As it turns out, I did have to leave town. Eric Snowden didn't offer to hang out with me*, but I did get to hang out with my hubby and kiddo, at the beach!
I've noticed that I tend to put the kiddo first--not in a way that spoils her, but in ways she's not aware of or doesn't really appreciate. You know, like buying foods that she will agree to eat, that don't happen to be crap, when sometimes she wants the crap. Anyway, while we were on the beach, I took some time for myself, put my chair right at the edge of the ocean, and meditated. I'm not very experienced at meditating, but what I did was relaxing, so it works for me.
The kiddo was getting frustrated by constantly getting sand in her bathing suit (I totally get it, I don't like chafing, either), and repeatedly
*because I didn't try to contact him! Duh!
