Things that run through my head when I’m able to kick back a bit:
Where will my family and I be five years from now?
Did I leave the faucet running before leaving the bathroom?
Will I ever get my hair colored again?
When will I go back to corporate?
Will my son be this loving to me forever?
When will my husband and I go on a decent date?
How does a mani-pedi feel like again?
Will we have another baby?
Do other people find me attractive?
Am I losyang already?
When will I get new clothes?
When will I get new jeans? Or should I just have my current ones altered?
Will Timmy remember all the fun things we’re doing now when he’s older?
When will I begin exercising regularly?
When will I get 8 hours of straight sleep?
Obviously I’ve been lacking some serious ME time. It’s been Mommy time 98% of the time — the 1% being bath time, 1% being work. I work from home, but meet with my team in person a few times a month. I look forward to those hours because they help me breathe a little bit. Didn’t think quiet cab rides to meetings would be so precious too.
Moms, how do you ensure that you still have your me time? I think this is a challenge for Moms with young kids since they need to be supervised more. Any tips? Would welcome them!
