And on the 7th day we rest....

One would think that after a week of caring for my home, my three little blessings, all the dr appts, errands, shopping, appts and more that I would welcome a day to just sit back and put my feet up - so why can't I? I can never seem to just put my feet up and breathe. Is it because I want to "do it all", "have it all", have the perfect home, place for my kids....OR is it because I really don't know how to relax? I think it's a little of both. I am always trying to please others and make sure that everyone else is happy and taken care of, I really never look in the mirror and ask myself, What have you done for Melissa lately?" I have not been to the gym in almost 2 months (sick for a long time and now just lazy)! I do find time a few times a month to meet girlfriends out for a ladies night out. But how wonderful would it be that I could sit in my own home, on my deck, in the bath or even on the potty for that matter...without being interrupted for just 30 minutes. Ah...take that moment to just breathe in the air and let God take over. Will this be possible?

I was just thinking the same thing. My husband took the kids out for dinner last night and I had the evening alone - I really cleaned and reorganized the master bedroom and bathroom and it is my sanctuary now - I have a comfy chair for reading and my tv is close at hand! I'm resolved to get the YMCA more often, too. It is important to take care of you! I'm going to keep up with you and ask you how you're doing with that!

I have a hard time with this too. There always seems to be so much to do. When I DO take some "me time," I find myself mentally going over what I "should" be doing instead. ;)
