Thought I would share with you the awesome Ninjago party we had for my oldest! Check out the pics and hope you like them! Most ideas were from good ol’ Pinterest! So grateful to have help from my mom, my hubs … Continue reading
So I’ve been thinking about this for some time… The golden question: How do I make time for me?
As a mom and wife does that even exist? Is it necessary? Is it selfish?
I don’t flippin’ know! I have been juggling the pseudo-single mom life this past year since my hubbs travels quite often for work and the alone time is few and far between. I feel like it’s my duty to be there for the boys even more to compensate for the other half being gone. They feel it… I feel it. They are stressed… I am stressed.
Often I feel that my non-mommy friends don’t understand why I can’t hang out when they can or I can’t go to dinner because frankly I just don’t have the energy to deal with a screaming tired 2 yr old that is fighting with his older brother.
But as I type this I wonder to myself if I am doing an injustice to all of us by not taking time to myself when I can. Surely me being stressed and overly tired does no good for anyone. So I guess if I could change one thing about myself… I’d change priority for myself.
So now that I’ve talked myself into it… Where’s my nail technician with my glass of wine?!
If I woke up to $1 mil… Well I sure as heck would hope I didn’t over sleep on that day!
First thing I would do would be to pay off EVERYTHING and all debt. Can you imagine that feeling?… AMAZE-Balls!
Then I would make a very fast call to my fav real estate peeps and get a nice new house (nothing too extravagant, but new or remodeled) in Seattle and San Diego and set a record for the fastest real estate transactions ever. There MUST be palm trees in the yard in San Diego. MUST!
Then I would put any remainder if there were any on Visa Gift Cards so I could spend it later. 😉 Is that cheating? It may be. Whateva.
I’d probably also splurge on this AWESOME Young Living kit that I have had my eyes on since I started using these bad boys… Check out this beauty: Aroma Complete. Can you imagine the things I could do with all them oils! Gives me gooseybumps!
Now that I am totally thinking about palm trees and oil kits… Off to dreamland.
