New goal

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Still taking the bus. I actually prefer to take it to work rather than drive now. Funny. We'll see how it goes in winter.

My new goal for myself is to take time out for me. I've been doing everything for everyone else but not having me time because I feel guilty doing it. DH even told me when I wanted to go to an ADULT movie by myself that I wasn't being a very good mom by leaving son at home and not spending quality time with him. (That day I went to son's hockey game and took him to a bday party all before my dh made that statement. Awesome!) So I stayed home and went to a kids movie with son and dh, got home and played with son the rest of the evening. Same the next day while dh took off to a friend's house. GRR.

So stressed lately. DH is still looking for a job in teaching but no one is hiring. Also checking out part time jobs in retail jobs (no full time available). DH's dad is dying of cancer. 1 more treatment option and if that doesn't work he is done. Worried about son and school. Thankfully 1st day went well yesterday. Lots of kids he had been in other classes with in same class so he had a good day.

Need a vacation stat!

    Good news! Hubby was offered a job today. Whew. I asked my boss for a vacation day Monday and he was fine with it. Look forward to a day by myself!

    I agree with the others you have to take time for yourself. I wonder how your husband thinks it's ok for him to go out on his own to a buddies, but you aren't allowed the same time alone. I do hope the job situation turns around for him, I know that adds so much stress to everybody and your father-in-law is in my prayers. Stay strong, take care of yourself so you can take care of everybody else.

    You are right - one of the BEST things you can do to be a terrific Mom to your son is to take some time for yourself. You can't pour anything from an empty vessel.
