Mother's Day Challenge - Day 9

There are definitely days when I wish I could stop time.  Days just seem to go by way too fast and it feels a little overwhelming.  It seems like one minute I'm waking up and the next it's time to start getting ready for bed again.  Today was just one of those days.  Sadly, those are the days that are so hard to fit in any "me" time.

When I set out to do this challenge, my goal was simple - do one thing each day that focuses on me.  Make sure that in the hustle and bustle of the day I'm not losing sight of the need to take care of myself so that I can be the best mom, wife and employee. 

Today just feels like a miss.  Wow, that kinda stinks.  I have even gone back through the day to see if I can snake something out of it.  Reality...with the exception of this moment, sitting and writing this blog, I've got nothing.  I woke up extra early this morning and was at my desk before 8am, I went on an errand with a friend at lunch time, ate a quick lunch at my desk, and ran out the door at 5:15 to pick up the Mayor.  Throughout the day...there was no walk, I didn't drink enough water, I forgot to take my vitamin...I didn't even get my Pinterest fix with my lunch.  Argh.

I'm going to regroup and salvage the rest of the evening though.  I'm going to head to bed, try to get in a little of the book I'm reading and get some sleep.  I will however, share an article that I read today on Modern Mom.  Making Yourself a Priority, Doesn't Make You Selfish, by Leslie Morgan Steiner.  The article starts off with an interesting quote:
“Women, after they turn 40, often hit a point when they decide the world should be all about THEM. They just get tired of taking care of people and go through a selfish period. It doesn’t matter how wonderful a man is it. It is just where women are at this stage.”
Don't worry, once you read the article the quote will make more sense.  It was interesting to see an article that touches on exactly why I took on this Mother's Day Challenge.  Take a read, and if you're so inclined, leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

  1. You can reduce sheet metal in several ways while using instruments similar to snips or even powered shears. Since most sheet metal fabrication requires giant, heavy machinery, a lot of the work needs to be done off-site earlier than it is introduced over for development. Once end-product requirements have been determined, the final store drawings shall be drawn and sent out to the metal fabricator for preparation. Like most contractor jobs, the project first starts with the drawings and blueprints. As the best baseball hats for men specialty contractor or project manager, that is additionally the place you would acknowledge the necessity for a sheet metal fabrication expert. The blueprints developed by the engineers will decide the sheet metal specifications necessary to create the preliminary drawings that shall be sent to the metal store or metal supplier.
