It's Tuesday so it's time for Virtual Coffee.
Or as you know it here on my blog...Virtual Diet Coke.
Only one thing.
I'm trying to cut out soda.
I'm a leeeeettle on edge. But I'm trying.
I'm working on drinking just one soda a day.
Wish me luck!
If we were really together right now we would be under a cozie blanket on my couch.
It's cold here in my house.
Celebrity Ghost Stories is on the Boob Tube.
Today I took a 1/2 hour and just dumped my brain onto a piece of paper.
Everything that is constantly rattling around in my head that causes me some sort of stress that I feel I have to remember because it is important.
I just dumped it all.
It wound up being a sort of Resolutions list.
Little things like
*take wedding ring in to be cleaned*
*redo vision board*
*clean out car*
And big things like
*be more present with G*
*be kinder and more respectful to Hubs*
*consistently write down achievable goals*
I'm a list person.
I make lists everyday.
For chores at home.
But rarely do I make such a personal list for myself.
I should do this more.
I need to keep reminding myself that
I MUST FILL MYSELF UP TO FULLNESS FIRST
IN ORDER TO OVERFLOW ONTO OTHERS.
Such easy words to type.
Not so easy to live.
Especially when you are a Mama.
One of my smaller items on the list was
*get regular pedicures*
Guilt sets in when I want to leave to go get a pedicure.
But when I get back, I'm calmer, happier, ready to take on life again.
Anyone else have issues with Momguilt?
Knowing that you need a respite, a retreat, a break but feel weak for needing that?
I know you're out there. Let's talk about it!
Thanks for the virtual talk.
I'd love to hear from you!
For more Virtual Coffee head over to Lucky Number 13!
I have to post this picture.
Is there anything cuter than a toddler in jeans?
