Every day I wear many hats. I am a wife, daughter, and mother. These roles are a big part of who I am and I love each one of them but as a mom and wife it is easy to neglect an important person. Myself. I do for others and I don’t always find the time for myself to put make up on, wear anything other than yoga pants, and I surely don’t often do my hair. I decided that it was finally time for some me time.
I won’t lie, sometimes taking time out for myself includes getting snacks that are just for me so I took a trip to Walmart to get some. I chose Skinny Cow Salted Caramel Ice Cream Candy bars and Milk Chocolate Dreamy Clusters.
This past weekend while my husband was home I planned to have some much-needed quiet time. I was going to have a leisurely breakfast, a hot cup of coffee or two, and I planned to spend the rest of the morning on the deck with a book. I haven’t been able to finish a book in months so some reading time is long overdue.
It has been so hot here for the past few weeks. I’m talking mid to upper 90s hot! To beat the heat I found a shady spot on the deck to read and took a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Candy Bar to snack on. Is there a better way to stay cool than with ice cream? I don’t think so either!
After relaxing for a while with a good book I went inside for lunch with my husband and kids before doing some much-needed garden maintenance. When it was time to head down to the garden I brought a snack outside with me where I wouldn’t have to share. The kids and the husband have their snacks and I have mine so I don’t feel bad about keeping them all to myself.
After having a few hours of alone time and peace and quiet I felt recharged and you know what? The children bickering didn’t even bother me anymore.
What do you do for a little me time?
