Oh my. This sounds soooooo lovely. Especially since I've been home with children full time since James has been out of town for 2 1/2 weeks. I definitely need a break, and my birthday is coming up. I think this would make a great birthday present for myself! Hmm. . . just think of all the things I could do, think, dream, enjoy for a day without worrying about everybody else! Thanks for the inspiration and I really hope you enjoy your day off!

My husband has twice taken our children to visit his mother alone. She and I are not close, hence I received a double blessing of time to myself and avoiding some fraught interactions with her. The first "vacation" I worked crazy office hours most of the time, but it was still refreshing to feel a release of responsibility at home. The second time I had a five-week-old baby, but it still felt like a vacation, because I cleaned the house and it STAYED CLEAN, thus freeing me up to do all sorts of other things besides feed, bathe, clothe, clean-up-after, and entertain little bodies (much as I miss those tender, little bodies now).

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
