I am a working mom and my job is kind of rough right now. But there are some weekends that by Sunday I am TOTALLY ready for the kiddos to go back to school and daycare. This was an especially trying weekend with tantrums, germs and more messes than I could clean. So I decided to give up on my to-do list Sunday evening after the kids were asleep. I did some self care and decided to call it “Self Care Sunday”.
I put on avocado clay mask goop. I found some at Wal-greens and decided to give it a spin.
I soaked my tootsies in a tea tree oil foot bath. And then scrubbed approximately 3 pounds of dead skin off of them. This was a foot soak sample I got in a goodie bag somewhere but boy howdy did it work!
And then I caught up with the Grocery Girls and a podcast I missed a couple weeks back. I paired this with some sock knitting and a spiked hot chocolate. You can never go wrong with peppermint schnapps and rich dark chocolate.
I still felt kind of guilty for not working on my to-do list. So I gave up and went to bed early. I’m curious, how do you guys self care?
I had a spot of professional frustration and disappointment this past week. While doing my best to work through it without drowning myself in mint chip, I guess my family noticed. I was grocery shopping with Jellybean this past weekend and he saw a sale bin of flowers.
I could see him eyeing the flowers up and down. After a bit he looked up at me said “Mommy, can I get you these flowers? Because I love you so much and they will make you feel better.” It took all my strength not to cry my eyes out standing in the Dillons checkout lane. So I let him pick his favorite color and added them to my cart. No matter that I paid for my own flowers, I just picked up my big hearted four year old and hugged him as tight as he would let me.
I wish you all a good week and that someone loves you as much as Jellybean loves me!
