Break Time

Once in awhile, mommy needs a break. Not a one, five, or ten minute break. A big break. Mommy needs "me" time to keep her sanity, to maintain her calm and zen-ness.

I needed one such break last weekend.

Ben and Baby William and I spruced up the house for spring. We trimmed trees and washed patio furniture and sprinkled the yard with grass seed. I did a lot of this with Baby William strapped across my chest. I loved the closeness of Baby William, but my back hurt after hours of carrying him and it took three times as long to get things done.

By Sunday evening, I wanted to cut loose for just a bit. So, I yelled to Ben that I was outta here. He didn't question me.

I hopped into the car and floored it down the driveway. I peeled around the corner and zoomed down South Broadway toward the setting sun. I opened the windows and blared music. I swerved when switching lanes and cheered while doing it. I quickly slurped a Dairy Queen blizzard and almost returned for another.

After an hour, I felt better. Reenergized and ready for life. I couldn't wait to get home to see my baby and Ben.

Car Decals NYC are very affordable so your company budget or fund will not be affected. Aside from its affordability, you can also expect that it will last longer so you will not be required to change every week or every day. It sticks to the surface of the car without any hassle. The choice is yours if in what part of the car you want to mount your decal just make sure that it is visible and relevant to your business. Make sure that it will create a bigger impact to the extent that when people have spotted it, they will be amazed.
