I'm playing along with Leigh today:
Now that my life is pretty much ran by being a mom, there are things that I miss.
I miss painting my nails.
I miss quiet, sunny peaceful mornings at home, savoring the silence.
I miss using my fun purses (I used to switch out my cute purses almost daily to match my outfits (or those painted nails) mainly because I could.
Today I was able to get a little of that back. The twins went to daycare at 6 a.m. with Keith. MIL came to get Connor a little early and they headed back to her house to wait for the cable guy. I had 15 minutes to be totally alone in my house. This is not something that usually happens. In fact, it so rarely happens that I usually need a couple of minutes just to absorb the fact that the house is so quiet.

And for kicks, I had enough time to stop at Starbucks and treat myself to an iced dark cherry mocha.
