Today I am off from work today. I can't re-call the last time I had a Sunday off. It has been nice to sleep in and have a quiet day to reflect on what is important to me. To also find myself pondering upon things I believe in.
At this moment on thought that keeps coming to mind is making time for myself. A day to do whatever I want to do. A creative day to accomplish a talent that I have been pushing aside, something I really want to do. But, as it is when I do get a true day off from work, it ends up being filled with things the family needs done, errands runned, or house cleaned. Today is very different. I have no plans, no obligations, no one truly needs me to take them anywhere, or there aren't any projects for others that are a must get done. So, of course as I already mentioned, I slept in. It was blissful or at least restful. Then I told myself that I deserved to have a day off. So, I would keep myself from doing house work, and laundry, which I ended up doing 2 much needed loads anyways. I have to say it has been wonderful. Hubby (Robert) made me a really nice treat for breakfast. French Toast. I haven't eaten french toast in years, it's been like 11 years. Since learning what my food allergies are, I discovered that I am not allergic to eggs. Had a Dr. years ago tell me he thought I was allergic to milk, eggs and cheese with yellow coloring. So,I avoided milk and scrambled eggs. My french toast was made with homemade bread and covered in homemade syrup. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! Then I did something that everyone commented on, laid on the bed and watched TV. Shocker! Brad kept telling me, "Mom, you never lay down in the middle of the day, it's weird." Still smiling as I share this with you. I also did something I have been wanting to have time to do for a looooong time, re-design my blog. With all the changes going on in my life right now, it's fitting that it should change as well. I also had time today to talk with Hubby, Robert about a few things. We don't get much time as of late just to talk about goals we are working towards. Married couples should have time for this. Awe, what a blissful day!
This day has me looking at my calendar a little differently. Starting this week I will be working on a new routine and in that routine I will be making time for me. Do you make time to re-fill your tank, or giving bucket? Happy Sunday!
