Having Mom's Day Out feeling guilty
OK, so I've planned a mini vacation for myself. I am driving to a town 90 miles away (the town holds a lot of nostalgia for me) and spending the day there. I am getting a hotel room although I am not staying overnight. I will use it for the pool and hot tub and maybe to take a nap. Including driving time, I think I will be gone 10-12 hours.
My problem is I feel guilty. I feel guilty spending $70 for a room I will only be using a few hours. (Although my husband just spent that at a casino last week). I feel guilty that I work full time, only get 2 full days a week with my kid, and I'll be leaving her. I feel guilty about how excited I am to spend the day alone. I worry that she'll miss me and I know I will miss her.
Can anyone relate?
