I'm going anyway ...

I’m tired.

I’m emotionally spent.

I’m physically worn out.

I haven’t showered since yesterday.

My good jeans are speckled with Baby’s white antibiotic from when she spit it all out.

But, I’m going anyway. I’m going to my book club meeting tonight.

I haven’t finished the book. But I am going anyway.

Because, well … this mama needs a break. And a glass of wine. And, an opportunity to have a social life and maybe make a friend or two in this town I’ve lived in for two years.

So, I’m going anyway.

Hopefully the concoction of lotion, deodorant and hair spray will be enough to masque the spit up and yogurt that I can’t seem to fully eradicate.

Perhaps my charming and witty personality (aka the red wine I’m bringing to share) will sufficiently hide the dark circles under my eyes and the peas in my hair.

Even if it doesn’t, I’m going anyway.


  1. Go, relax, socialize, and enjoy it. You deserve it (I need to take my own advise huh?)

  2. I think they will love you either way! :) Have fun! It sounds like you need some you time! Have a great weekend!

  3. I hope you had fun! My book club meets at the end of the month, and I still have not bought the book! But even if I don't read it, I will for sure attend for great wind and awesome friends.

  4. Good for you! My best friend is having this same problem right now. Totally stressed with trying to figure out how to balance work, being a new mom, husband, work...etc.

    Good for you for getting out and taking a break.

  5. You go, enjoy your time...and take the break. I'm thinking that is exactly what I need.

  6. I hope this was the fix you needed! As I sit here on a Monday morning fighting with the kids to hurry up and get ready for school I feel like I could use the same sort of break. ;-)

  7. Hope you had a fabulous time! You deserved a break!

  8. Mamas need time outs and wine, lots of wine! Have fun!
