I had a super lazy weekend. I didn’t cook. I didn’t clean. I didn’t go to the garden. I did absolutely nothing, but finished two novels, Cowboy Pride by Lacy Williams and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. (The latter I recommend reading with your middle or high schooler. There are some deep topics worthy of discussion related to justice, racial discrimination, interracial dating, etc.)
Last night, I began to feel guilty for not cooking or cleaning, but I just didn’t have it in me. I’m still trying to figure out if this lack of energy has something to do with my impending menses. You would think after 25 years, I would know by now, but….I don’t.
This morning I was in a funky mood. I was frustrated because my grand-parenting role becomes blurry at times. More of this topic, another day. As I become older, I treasure and value my me time. Sometimes, I wonder if guarding my me time is a result of having children at a young age. I had my first child when I was 18.
Today was a telecommute day, which is always a blessing because it allows me to catch up on reading work materials, its a change in environment, and let’s be honest – flexibility is a work perk!
I crafted a chore chart for the kids because a couple of them forget their responsibilities and I’m tired of reminding, asking, griping, and yelling. Speak less, mama.
