Seriously, this was the outlet, the method to my madness. My ability to escape through words from my far too busy, 4:30am to 10pm-ish life. And I have neglected it far too much in the past year.
So, beginning yet this week I shall commit to one thing for myself that doesn't involve making certain my 5 year old can say his memory verse without fail in front of his teacher, cooking at least 4 meals a week where we actually sit together and partake of it, having the newly done laundry folded at least within 24 hours of it coming out of the dryer, planning out our weekly grocery shopping trip (trust me, this couponing thing can be a burden) and the other myriad of other things that consume me each day that drain the living spirit from my bones. Perhaps I will then hear more often the words dearest to my heart these days.
"Mommy! Look! I did it all by myself!"
Unplugged in my life sometimes means the opposite it does for most.
Go my children, and become. Mommy has some becoming to do as well.
Stayed tuned. (And if you don't see something in the next 5 days, better text me. I may have forgotten this moment of self indulgence already).
