A day to ourselves

Last weekend my husband and I had a full day to ourselves and it really was much needed. We dropped the little guy at my parents and hopped on a train to NYC. We went to the Rangers-Flyers game which was fun. It was the first Ranger game I had gone to. After the game we went to Chelsea Brewing Company for lunch. The beer was great, the view was beautiful, but the food was just ok. It didn't really matter though. We talked about all sorts of things and it was nice to do it uninterrupted.  We then took a stroll down 14th street to Union Square and talked about how we need to come in when the weather is warmer with the little guy. We strolled right to Heartland Brewery where I had the most delicious porter. The name was even great "not tonight honey porter"  Yum.  I did miss my little one, but it was nice to have some grown-up time.

More time

Lately I have been feeling that there just is not enough time in the day. It isn't a new feeling for me, but it seems multiplied lately. First, I want to take the time to be the best mom that I can be. That, it seems, takes up the majority of my time that I am not at work. Work is the necessary evil that takes up so much of my day. Do not get me wrong, I love my job and the people that I work with, but maybe if it were three days a week or if the commute was not just about an hour.  It takes a lot out of me. Sprinkle in the daily and weekly tasks and there doesn't seem to be much time for anything else.

I am very lucky to have a fabulous husband who does everything he can to help out. This is huge!  I certainly could not pull off parenthood without him. We are working together to keep it together.

There are a few things I will be working on. I will keep you posted.
