Sometimes work makes us do weird things. And forces us to get out and do something, we normally wouldn’t.
Like today. Sure, the beach is fairly close and accessible to us. But getting up early enough to get there, in the AM, just never happens for this lover of sleep (and a certain baby girl who follows in her Mama’s footsteps).
But because I was due to be working tonight, thereby losing my Saturday night with the fam, and the weather was going to be hot, I thought…
“let’s sneak a cheeky beach visit in early on.”
Hubbie was working so it was just baby girl and I. But a working woman’s gotta do what a working woman’s gotta do… grab that opportunity by the horns and run with it! Don’t wait for anything! Enjoy the moment NOW.
Which is exactly what we did. 3 and a half hour of cheeky beach fun. The weather was actually perfect. Not too hot, and yet somehow, hot enough. No wind. So still. And I reckon they were generally locals around, since it would have been more packed than it already was if the Long Weekend touros were onto us…
But just imagine. Imagine I missed out on perfection with my daughter, just because I was waiting for the right day. When Hubbie was around. When I wasn’t working. When we had MORE time. When we were all well-slept.
It was heaven, it was bliss, and sitting here at work now, I am soooo glad that we did it.
Here’s to more beach mornings, and early rises 🙂
