Every Christmas vacation, I find myself a bit stir-crazy because there’s so much family togetherness. I love being with my family, but I also realize that I’m a better mom if I get a break from all that togetherness, too.
I’ve learned the value of needing some time with my girlfriends at least once over the two week Christmas break that my kids are off school. Sometimes I just schedule coffee (tea for me!) with a friend and sometimes Mark and I will go out with another couple. This year I’m doing a Girl’s Night Out at my house this Wednesday evening. I’ll be sending my lovely family somewhere else (to be determined) and the girls will take over the house. I just look forward to the refueling conversations with some girlfriends!
What about you? How do you take some time for yourself over the holiday season? What plans have you made or will you make to schedule some girlfriend time?
