Where Does My Time Go?
The Parent Bloggers Network in conjunction with Light Iris is holding a little drawing to send a blogger to this years BlogHer. The topic "Where Does My Time Go" fits in nicely with something that I wanted to talk about anyhoo... my time, and where the crap it has gone.
At first I thought I'd give this one a miss, but then I read the fine print and realized that this wasn't a writing contest... nope, it's a random drawing. If it were a contest then I'd feel compelled to spend some time on writing the post, and time is something I ain't got so mucha these days. Plus, I don't know if I'd be able to get away to GO to BlogHer. Time.
A couple of days ago my sister Shel, in Colorado called me. She had tried to leave a comment on this post, but Blogger ate it, so she called instead. Normally I get griped at Blogger when it does glitchy things like that, but I let it slide this time. It was a really good conversation, but the main reason and message that she had for me was to relax. Most especially, to take some time for myself. She is so very right.
I have never had a pedicure, but I love the idea of one, and I love the way they make your feet look. I had decided that this year for Mother's Day I was gonna get me one! I had cherry-red polish in mind. A girlfriend of mine and I decided that we would go together, after checking with one of the neighborhood divas as to where was the best place to go. If you have kept up with this blog, you will know that this did not happen, as I spent the better part of the month of May with my youngest in the Children's Hospital.
I commit to getting a pedicure within this next week.
My hair was overdue for a cut and color by several weeks, over a month ago! I hardly noticed, because the hospital lighting in the bathrooms made it seem as if I still had highlights. It was not till the last week in, that I looked close enough to realize that it was not highlights I was seeing, but strands and clumps of pure white sprouting from my head.
I commit to a cut and color. I have an appointment for next Wednesday.
Plus I want y'all to know that I have watched two chick fliks and consumed decent chocolate in the past few days. In that same vein... I commit to three good sessions on the exercise bike in the next week to offset this necessary consumption of chocolate.
Not positive where my time went... but I know it's not gonna just show up, so I'm going to TAKE some time and MAKE it mine. At least I'm going to try!
