I just wanted to mention that theres nothing wrong with a little "me" time now and again ;)
While I don't need a fancy spa vacay to be fully rejuvenated, a trip alone to the grocery store can work miracles. Yesterday I perused the aisles of my local natural food store a.l.o.n.e. and let me tell you it was amazing. I stopped, I smelled, I tasted, I went back for seconds, I read labels, asked questions, smiled, pondered. It was really quite lovely.
Some days a full-time nanny sounds heavenly, that's where my new found perspective comes in handy. But ladies, seriously never feel guilty about taking a breather. A friend last night told me how her hubs had left with the kiddies for the day and instead of getting things done around the house, she had taken a three hour nap! Then read a book for an hour! I know, how dare she take a break from her sleep deprived state when she could've been cleaning something or cooking something or folding something. She felt bad about the whole afternoon and I told her not to feel bad one single bit! That may have been the last long nap she gets for the next 18 YEARS! Mamas, we are only human... which is why I am typing this and not delving into my daily chores.
Have a beautiful Sunday :)
