I had a layoff week from work and today is my last day off before I start back. The week was good. I had so much that I planned to do on my week off, but I didn’t get to any of it. The one thing that I did do was spend a lot of quality time with my kids. We snuggled and watched movies and played games...it was great and much needed for all of us...and pretty much all that was accomplished all week and that is ok. It is so hard to balance work, kids, homeschooling, housework, and personal time. By the time I get to personal time, I feel guilty that I am not spending time with my kids. It is a constant struggle. Today, I woke up and didn’t feel well, so I spent the whole day in bed and slept most of the day. Luckily, my husband is great and took care of the kids so I could rest. He also took care of me and brought me lunch and dinner in bed. I started to feel a little bit better by late afternoon and decided to do some doodling to relax. I tried not to put too much pressure on myself to make something, I just wanted to doodle and this is what I came up with. Make time for yourself and relax. Do something fun and creative.
