I have to admit that when the kiddos went on vacation and I was left with a week solo I would know what to do. Now the issue is trying to fit it all in! Great problem to have....blessed problem to have. Friday it started and included an awesome art class and then drinks with friends.
Saturday was about working in my studio and then tackling the much over-grown yard work. More help from friends! Thankful for that because Tracy on a ladder cutting palm trees is a recipe for disaster.
Sunday I took time for a pedi, more work and then our annual trip to Coronado for a concert in the park. Rockola was playing so Jacqueline and I packed up our coolers and with Marilyn hosting it was so much fun! Then slumber party at Marilyn's which overlooks San Diego! How lucky am I!
So to say that I wonder who I am when I am not Mom...I am a friend, adventurous, busy, working, landscaper, music lover, independent, and appreciating the time. Not all of us can have this time but we can all make "me" time no matter how short/long it is. This week I plan to make the most of the time as it truly is a gift.
I kiss my kiddos, miss being Mommy in demand. I pray for my Grandma in the hospital and her 98 years of time taking a toll. I miss my family but have talked to many. I have been gifted some time to live, laugh, and ok, lounge just a little more. I am not going to waste it. Time is a limited gift we have.....time in my studio, alone, working, with friends, etc. is a gift. Time as a Mom will return and the rush for school will be on!
Make the most of your time!
