Sometimes you just have to drive to the liquor store the next town over just because it’s going to take longer. That’s exactly what I did tonight.
My house was full of FIVE boys. Five boys ages 11 to 6. Five boys! Wait, actually it was six boys. How can I forget the man-boy husband? Six boys in my house. I was completely out numbered and it was so LOUD. I don’t do loud. Sure we have a busy house, but it’s not super loud. My insides were crawling. I just needed a moment of silence.
I told my husband I was going out to get a bottle of wine. I got in my car and sat in the driveway for a moment. Three deep breathes. I then drove right past the local liquor store and kept driving. I drove to the next town over and pulled into the parking lot. I just sat there in the dark silence. Ahhhhhh. So needed.
Then I got a text.
Back to the battleground.
Sometimes we just need to take a minute. Where do you go hide out?
