See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
It is so easy for HS mom's (and most mom's for that matter) to get stressed out. It's so easy to forget our sanity is important too. I mean think about it - we spend 99% of our days thinking of our families and providing everything they need. But if I've learned one thing in the last 10 years, it's that it's important for us to not forget about ourselves. No matter how busy our day, or how tired/overwhelmed we get, we need to be a little selfish once in a while or we'll end up completely burnt out - then we're no good for anyone. It doesn't have to be complex or expensive, just take a few minutes to do something you enjoy for yourself.
What do you do for your YOU time?
I read in the evenings. Once the kids are in bed - at about 8 pm, my DH settles in to watch all those competition tv shows (Idol, DWTS, Voice, etc) so I go outside - no matter the weather - and read. I don't care if the house looks like it was invaded by crazed elves, I think I'd go a little crazy without that short time to read a brainless book (my guilty pleasure are paranormal romance novels....cheezy I know!).
