Mother's Day Challenge - Day 8

Sunday is coming to a close and I have that old Sunday feeling. It's that feeling that gets me reflective about the weekend with my family, and makes me think about the work week ahead. Work and home sometimes feel like two separate lives, but Sunday really brings that separation to light.

So here it is, the start of the second week of my self imposed Mother's Day Challenge. I'm pleased with the results so far. One week of having to ensure that each day I take some time to collect my thoughts and do something that focuses on my emotional needs has really had an effect on me. Definitely a positive effect so far. I'm pretty excited to continue this and see how I feel as it progresses further.

So today my "me" time was simply some alone time. I know that doesn't sound like much of a "me" time, but it really was nice. You see, I'm one of those people who needs some quiet time to recharge - and let's face it as a mom to a 5-year old I often can't even pee alone!  On Sunday, C goes to his swimming class at our fitness club, so this morning I asked him to take The Mayor to the child play center there. It was nice because that means over two hours of me time. Nice!

And the me time today was not super monumental. I washed the kitchen floor (woo hoo!), and caught up on some DVR (huge woo hoo!!). It was really good though.  My DVR lately has been so neglected, basically I would need a lot more "me" time to get even remotely caught up. Besides, some of that DVR evidence needs to be purged; if anyone ever leaked the contents of my DVR I would be a little mortified!! Yes, I like my reality TV smut...but I'm not leaving that evidence just laying around.

I'm looking forward to a busy, productive week...and some valuable "me" time to come.I have high hopes for this week, and the coming long Memorial Day Weekend.
