Today was my day off. I had lunch with my friend and it was so nice to be with someone I can totally be myself because all I do at my work is to be friendly and put a huge smile on my face to greet customers. It's not always easy.
Then after lunch, I picked my daughters up at friend's house and took the girls to Dunkin Donuts. They got munchkins - They love that stuff. And I got myself an Iced Latte. Let me tell you, their coffee is not bad at all. Acutally I always enjoy their Iced Latte. It definitely tastes different from Starbucks Iced Latte which I truly love, but I sometimes feel Dunkin's latte is smoother.
The weather was so nice today that I opened all the windows as soon as we got home. And before you know it, I laid on the couch watching the girls play. It was around 4:15pm as we watched Giada's Everday Italian on FoodNetwork, (my daughters adore Giada and we always watch her show together) I started to get really, really sleepy. I was fighting not to fall asleep, but I was losing it. So I asked the girls to bring mommy their blankets - they thought that I was playing.
Me: Okay girls, mommy is getting really sleeeeeppppyyyyy~~
Ju Ju & Soapy: Mommy, we brought our blankets... there yu go (and they put two warm blakets over my body)
Me: Let me take a nap for 10 mins. Just 10 mins - that's all I need!
So I close my eyes and almost drifting away, but not fully because I feel really bad about taking a nap while girls are playing. Now I hear them whispering and talking to Giada and to each other.
Ju Ju: Wow.. that looks so yummy - I want mommy to make it for dinner. Giada is a great cook, but mommy is the bestest cook. (she is so sweet)
Ju Ju: Is mama sleeping?
Soap: I dunno - let me seeee.. (She climb on top of me and gives me kiss twice on my lips)
Ju Ju: She is really tired.
Soap: uh huh
My little girls's conversations were too cute to listen ( even though I was 1/2 awake and 1/2 asleep).
Now, I probablly closed my eyes and slept for 10 minutes, but I was totally recharged. Power nap is so great. I just want to thank my girls who had let their mommy sleep even just for 10 minutes without trying to wake me up. Thanks girls - it was my perfect day off.
