Where Do The Days Go?

September 21, 2015

The days since school has started for my kids are passing me by in a blur. Each one has been over scheduled, with things to do and places to be from 8 am to 8 pm. I’ve been going at a pace that is unsustainable, and it can only go like this for so long.

The truth is, I need to do a better job of taking care of myself. Of saying no to so much. And saying yes to quiet times. My family relies on me to be there for them, and I need to take care of myself so I can take good care of them.

That’s why I’m giving myself permission to chill.

Last night I ran a hot bath, grabbed my Nook and a glass of wine, and soaked for a half hour. Let me tell ya, it was good for my soul.

The plan for today is to get the kids ready for school, then volunteer there for a few hours. In the evening I have kids’ activities to get to. But in the afternoon? Nothing.

I am actually scheduling in a few hours to do nothing. Nada. I’m going to sit on my couch and read a book.

And I’m going to do my best not to feel guilty about it. We’ll see how that goes.
