Sometimes You Just Need a Mommycation!
by Jamie Hinckley on Apr 18, 2013 2
We got a phone call two weeks ago from our builder telling us the house will not be ready by our agreed upon closing date after all. Closing on the house was pushed back until the end of the month. Boo!
We currently live with my sister and her family of 5 in a two bedroom, one bathroom house while our house is being built. That is 10 people in said 2 bedroom house. Yep.
So you can imagine how I was feeling after having the closing date delayed. Ha! I decided to take a little mommycation for a couple days. Needed to get out of the house and have a little luxury alone time if you know what I mean!
At first I felt bad about going… who takes a vacation by themselves for no reason?!?! My husband was really sweet about it though and encouraged me to go and have some fun. He took over everything with the boys and even babysat my 18 month old nephew for me since I watch him on weekdays for my sister.
I had such a good time! I got a hotel in Orlando (couple hours from us) and just chilled! I slept in everyday, got some fresh highlights, got a pedicure, went shopping at the outlets, and sat by the pool to read. It was AMAZING!
Technically it was was only 2 nights, but I am so glad I did it. I came home refreshed and motivated. I think I can make it now… 8 more days until we close! We have been waiting since August, so what is 8 more days now that I am refreshed and de-stressed!
