Well guess who climbed out from under a rock…or should I say a mountain of work and life changing events.
I have wanted to start blogging again for a while, but it was hard to figure out where to begin. I stopped blogging when I got pregnant with my second child and my work demands became much more intense. I was too tired to do anything after work except take care of a two-year-old and grow a baby in my belly. Then I gave birth to my baby boy, J.J., and I had to go back to my demanding job way too soon after he was born. So with a toddler, a newborn, and a job as a lawyer, I simply had no time or energy to write…or to continue with my unfinished and never-ending house renovations. *sigh*
I thought about coming back here so many times, but my schedule wouldn’t allow it. I work and when I get home after 6 p.m., I feed kids and pets, bathe kids, put kids to bed, unload work and school bags, do laundry, clean up the kitchen, make lunches for the next day, plan dinner for the next night, take care of some bills and financial matters, kind of pick up the house, go through the mail for the day, update my to-do list, get myself showered and ready for work, and go to bed (fingers crossed that I can get this all done by midnight).
It makes me sad that I haven’t had time to write for me in such a long time. I write all day for other people and I do all day for other people, but I really don’t do anything for myself anymore . . . until last week.
So last week I got a facial. That was a big deal because I actually left the house sans kids and did something that didn’t involve errands (other than depositing some checks). Guess what? For once I didn’t feel guilty. Not one bit. I decided while having my face massaged and cucumbers placed over my eyes that I wanted to take some time for me. If that means that I’m selfish, so be it. I think it’s time for me to start being a little selfish. I think moms deserve to be a little selfish sometimes. I even set up another facial two months from now. Hooray for me!
So hi again! I am back! And more selfish than ever.
