Mothering Annual Leave

on May 31, 2014

I’ve been struggling a bit recently – being exhausted one day, insomnia the next – and I really feel like I need a holiday.

In the past 12 months, hubby has gone away for the weekend for his 30th birthday, had at least 3 big nights out with recovery needed the next day and been away on a handful of football day trips. 

What have I had?

I had one night at my mum’s where I was home by half 7 in the morning. I’ve had three nights out where I was home by 10 (one with hubby) and one day at a spa (which was bliss).

I want to run away.

Hubby is currently sleeping off a work night out, he came home at lunch and took a half day. I had no sleep last night due to insomnia, but I get no half day. I stopped breastfeeding over a week ago, but bedtimes are still all me. In about 6 weeks I’m having a day away to attend a signing convention, I’m seriously considering staying there the night for an obscene cost just to have a day off.

Does that make me selfish or normal?
