Finally the house is quiet. For a few moment anyway. All the kids are napping, or at least quiet in their rooms. I am so tired. I just want a break from mommy-hood for a day. I seriously need a day away. 24/7, 12 months a year for the passed 4 1/2 years... I'm tired. I'm figuring I've acrued alot of overtime and vacation days by now. *wink*
I have a question for you ladies out there. How do you find time away to regroup and recharge? And what on earth do you DO with that time away?! Please tell me! I am seriously thinking that I need to begin scheduling this away time into my month. I hate leaving my kids. I feel guilty about it. I wonder if they will all be ok while I am gone. However. I am beginning to realize that I am not operating at full capacity when I do not get that time to recharge. I am just one worn out mama that just barely scrapes through the day!
I want to do some fun things! Some days it feels like life is on hold or something. I wonder-where did all these kids come from so fast?! I want to go on some adventures-see some neat scenery. Take some great pictures. Hike some fascinating trails. Stick my toes in ice cold water. Find some out of the way place to eat and sleep. Try something new. So what do you think? Do you just go and do these things anyway? Three small kids tagging along? Or do you schedule them in for you and hubby? Or do you throw it all to the wayside til the kids are a bit older?
So here I am. Nice home. Nice yard. Nice kids. But I'm feeling sort of worn out, weary and frazzled today. Maybe it has to do with turning one year older tomorrow. Ya think?
