Last week was a rough one for me physically- I guess getting older means that monthly visit we get takes over my body and doesn't let go until its done. I was in PAIN for 5 days straight before IT actually came and then it was a fricken roller coaster for everyone in the house. I would say/do things and in my head yelling STOP because what was coming out of my mouth wasn't really me. My family bless their heart for dealing with me and thank goodness each month isn't like this (just every 3 months).
Then the kids had a four day weekend. They are 9 and 6 so they want to do everything. It's like if we don't have plans for the day they go on protest and just make my life crazy! They were actually pretty good. We went shopping, birthday party, friends over (2 days), movies, so they we busy but by Monday afternoon I could tell they were done spending time with each other and they needed to go back to school. I needed them to go back too...just being honest!
So yesterday when they went to school I looked at the house and said "I'll do it later" got my book and curled up in the comfy couch and READ for 4hrs. Finished the book! I did ignore all phones calls/emails and it felt good. What's 4 hrs right....geez do you know how much blog reading, blog commenting, facebook/twitter time, talking on phone, and the list goes on that I could have done in that time...LOL! But I know I need these breaks to keep me insane (opps I mean SANE LOL!). Reading is a joy of mine and so that will always be my first choice of ME time.
What do you do on your ME TIME or do you even take ME TIME?
