A Week of Rest?

This week has been devoted to just chilling out and getting us all ready for the next chunk of the year at school.  The boys have been in daycare (which is way more fun than hanging out with mom while she cleans, catches up, and such).  I've been busy doing all that - but I've also read 4 books, worked out 4 times, and caught up on a little TV.  It's funny that when I talk to other young (can I still call myself that?) mothers I encourage them to take some lazy time for themselves - and yet I still feel guilty when I do.  One of these days I'll learn to relax happily - without guilt that the house isn't clean and the schoolwork isn't ready....  

Our New Year's wasn't exciting - we let the boys stay up until East Coast New Year's - which is 9 here - we all screamed "Happy New Year" several times and then pretty much we all went to bed.  Woohoo!
Probably the only exciting thing to happen this week was Ethan finally lost his 3rd tooth.  This sucker has been loose since summer, but finally popped out.  He was thrilled!
We also got haircuts - but that's not too exciting, I guess.  We've spent time swimming, playing UNO, and reading - and that's about the extent of it.  I'm normally a go-er and a do-er, but it's been nice to be a much calm-er me for a few days.  Though I can feel my inner explorer ramping up for this weekend.  Can you say
"Monster Trucks"?

Good for you! You do need to do that- don't feel guilty. It can help you be a better wife and mom if you take some time for yourself. Happy New Year! Love, Donita
