Have you ever seen those memes on facebook. Mom’s “its time for bed” must do XYZ & Dad it’s time for bed ZZZZzzzzzZZZZ??
I just feel like a running to-do list all the freaking time.
All I want to do is relax and shut my brain off for 45 minutes to watch Netflix and drink an uninterrupted cup of HOT coffee. This actually gives me anxiety. Because I do not have the time for a break. I have limited kid-free time to accomplish literally the impossible. Bathe & brush Charlie because that winter coat is shedding and it is a freaking endless pile of fur everywhere. There is a bubbles all over the floor and a pan/ counter top 1/4 filled with pepper. There is a mountain of laundry. Not to mention my school responsibilities.
I am taking the 45 minutes– because I need it.
How do you justify me-time when the to-do list is ever-growing?
