Ok, I got it...

Today Friday May 18, 2007 my "five" minutes were buying myself a nice "cheesecake" ice cream and having it by myself in my porch while my kids were inside...

Believe it or not, my kids don't like ice cream, so it was a looong time ago I hadn't focus on buying some. Took me 20 minutes instead of five and surprise... They both survived! Your wisdom surprises me, very therapeutic...


Yes, I agree with the FEMALE SWEETPEAS... The bouncing thing doesn't help...

Well, I did a break.   I sat down and watch a tv show without anyone by me. I had a big old bowl of popcorn and turned on the show.  I was able to get away for 30 mins.  Don't ask me how I did that without someone coming and asking for somethng, but I think everyone know that I needed a break for once.  I am going to try again really soon.

     Well, last friday I was in a wedding and had to spend the night just me and hubby in a hotel!!  We haven't been alone like that in 14 years.  The last time was our honeymoon!!  We had a blast!  The wedding was beautiful and we had time for ourselves!  We had a nice hour ride home on Saturday and got home by 2 pm.  The house was in one piece but more inportantly my SIL had surived the night and 1/2 the day with my son!  lol So much so that she told me to let her know when Norman and I are ready to have another night out she'd watch the kids!!!  Waahoo!!  So, I'd say that I'm caught up for this week.  But, yes taking time for yourself is very inportant!  Right now is my time.  At night when the kids are in bed and Norm won't be home from work until 10:30 pm most nights. 

Take care,
Barb

Hmmm, does having my first appointment with a counselor for ME count? I took that step hesitantly, but I must say that I felt better at the end of the hour. It was nice to have someone focused on just me for a change, without judgement or blame. Her first suggestion to me....fins time everyday to do something for myself and I will be a better Mom. Good advice and similar to what this post challenges us to do! Thanks for that! Kathleen
