You just need a break
every once in a while.
It is a requirement. You don’t need a reason. But if you prefer, you can say you need a change. A breather. Someone else to do ‘things’ for a change while you put your feet up and relax. Or catch up on other jobs, let’s be honest here.
Being a woman, is damn hard. Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Cousin, Colleague… So many people depend of you for a variety of things.
So when Hubbie does the cooking, I don’t even say a word.
No pleases, no thank yous, no “I appreciate that bubs” – NOTHING. I deserve that much. No explanation.
Well, I said a few words, the night before, when I indicated to him that I wanted him to help out this evening: “You should have plenty of time to cook then!”
He pulled one of his classic ‘oops!’ caught out expressions.
What did I do instead? I showered and then set up a new train set with baby girl.
Sometimes, you don’t have to do other things. Sometimes, you don’t even want to do ANYTHING. Sometimes you need to just be. And I’m grateful Hubbie made his longed-for pasta sauce, so I could do just that.
For that, I’m appreciative.
He knows. 😉
