I’m sitting here in the comfort of my sofa, cat perched next to me, contemplating what to watch on TV — 20/20’s behind the scenes of “The Bachelor” franchise or last night’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” As I contemplate my decision, laptop in hand, I am also organizing posts in my head. I have a lot of new ones in store for you. I keep thinking of so many posts. I’ve got a butterfly cake coming and a rocket ship cake too. I’m also trying to get together an Easter rabbit cake tutorial before Easter arrives.
I don’t want to make excuses as to why I haven’t done these posts (one could have been up at the end of November) — I’m just a tired mom trying to juggle spending time with the kids and husband with working a full-time job, and still trying to find time to do the things I love to do: The other things that make me a whole person. The person I was before I became a wife or mother. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a wife and a mom, but I also like being me. I think there are times when women get caught up in doing things for other people and they loose part of themselves. Some even loose themselves entirely. I remember reading about Lance Armstrong’s ex-wife, Kristin Richard, and how she lost herself during their marriage. It’s important to take time for ourselves. Sometimes it’s hard with a full house, but I’m trying to find my way.
I’ll get to those posts, don’t you worry, (it’s something I love to do) but tonight I think I’ll watch some famous people try to become the “Apprentice.”
