Actually, screw that. I don't apologize. I had a week off from motherhood. An ENTIRE week.
Yes, it's true that I promised myself that I would get ahead on blog posts and catch up on networking and the endless household to-do list.
Yet, I did none of that.
What I DID do was: I slept in. I drank far too much wine. I bought shoes and Victoria's Secret items that I don't need. (REALLY don't need). I cleaned practically nothing. I cooked ABSOLUTELY nothing. I took walks in parks that look like this:
So yeah, I don't apologize.
In fact, this last week was probably the first time in many, many years that I've been able to just BE. I was able to focus on myself with NO guilt for doing so.
It was virtually stress free and virtually drama free. (Ok, I'm lying. I totally flipped out at my ex, but what can I say? Stress free or not, I'm still me. Deal with it.)
But I digress...
In short, it was amazing and it was exactly what I needed.
And I really, really wanted to share it with you all. I did attempt to sit down and blog on several occasions and I just could not do it!
Whether it was too little stress and therefore not enough pressure or just too many pairs of shoes calling my name. Or possibly, and maybe the most likely, too far in to a bottle of wine to compose a rational thought. (I know, I know. Who am I kidding with the "rational thoughts"? The irrational, drunk-off-my-ass ones would have been far more fun. For you.)
But regardless of the reason, I could not think of a single thing to write and could not find the discipline to sit down and try until my kids came back and I was forced back in to the daily routine of things.
But fortunately (or unfortunately) for you, they are back and so am I.
AND this is exciting because I'm going to be launching a new series on this blog on Wednesday and I am really, REALLY going to need your help!
This new series is inspiring for me and I think it will be for you as well.
So don't forget to check back here on Wednesday.
I'm seriously, really, REALLY gonna need your help.
For real. :)
