Holy HOT summer!

Monday, July 13, 2015

So I knew that school was over and that it meant in could put my school alarm clock away, but not really!

It feels as if we are in our car more times than while in school! Appointments on overdrive, weekends spent at friends, quick midnight runs for movie night snacks, oops I forgot to tell you I needed quick trip to grocery store, and on and on! I remember thinking how I could not wait for my babies to be grown up enough to do more for themselves, does anyone know where the emergency break for that is? I take it back.

I am not complaining, not in any way shape or form. It is so much fun watching, listening to and learning from my teens. Their individuality is simply amazing and fun to see take form.

What I am noticing is how easily I fall back into the routine, I thought, was what I needed to change in order to do more for me. It's hard to say no, really hard, to their wants and needs. After so many years of it, how do I do it without hurting anyone's feelings? I suspect it's more on my end, the guilt I feel from thinking I am being neglectful, not that it helps to know though.

I set the alarms, reminders, calendar emails and I manage to ignore them still. I've not done bad or worse, it just feels awful that I could not follow through. I miss this, blogging and sharing and getting feedback, doing for just me, I'm thinking I just need to regather strength, motivation?

Does anyone have that magic potion that allows us keep us from getting older and more tired?? Send some ASAP! *wink *wink

Hugs and well wishes,

    Enjoy each step of their lives. My son just graduated and when I do see him he is so crabby because he is so tired! 2 jobs and a GF!

    We all fall off the wagon of self care. What's important is remembering to get back on. emoticon

    You need a Me day, even if it is only once a week. Do you have a pedometer? A dog? Would be a good reason for walking. I slip every now and then too. Hang in there.

    Once a mother, always a mother, but remember you are important, too.

    For me blogging and getting feedback from others holds me accountable for my actions. It has been a huge help in getting me to where I am now. Sorry, I haven't found an anti aging magic potion yet either. If you find it before me feel free to share it!
