Do your ears ever get tired? Mine do. Sometimes I crave peace and total quiet.
People seem to think that because Sam is an only that we live a quiet life. Not soparticularly in the summer when were home more. Because my house isnt always squirming with kids, Sam needs someone to talk to. Usually that would be meand Im fine with thatbut sometimes I need quiet to recharge. I dont know about you, but yelling take me away and heading for the bathtub isnt likely to happen in the middle of the day at my house. However, I have learned to carve out me moments right at home.
One-on-one focus fills his tank so if Sam and I have quality time doing something fun, then we can both get busy with our own agendas for a while. My best strategy starts in the kitchen. We might make something like these Peaches and Cream Cookie Cups. Sam is a super little helper and taste-tester extraordinaire!
When weve finished visiting, baking, and tasting, usually Sam is satisfied to busy himself with his favored toy-of-the-moment. Thats when I clutch my glass of Snapple tea and sink into my highly valued chaise. I know there wont be a long enough stretch to read a book and when I want to recharge I purposefully avoid reading on my device. However, a favorite beverage and a favorite magazine can transport me to Someplace Else almost immediately. A glass of Snapple and a few minutes in that alternate universe does a world of wonders!
You can find the Snapple Teas at Walmart. They are offering 18.5 ounce Straight Up Tea and Premium Glass items on Rollback for just a $1.00 in-store, beginning on June 3rd. Another benefit of shopping at Walmart on a hot, humid day? Its gloriously air-conditioned and comfortably cool. You can dawdle down the aisles and fill your cart with all kinds of needful things. You love Walmart. Walmart will love you!
