Mental Health Day: Part One

Oh, the guilt required to be a mom. I brought my kids to the babysitter/preschool, and both time felt incredibly guilty that I was not using this day to be with them. Then I called and scheduled the massage for 1:30. Right now I'm home, I'm going to go for a walk (self challenge is going quite well, if you don't mind the 100 dollars I spent on healthy foods, which I honestly think is a good thing) and then go buy my mom a birthday present, pick up the house and eat lunch (roast beef sandwich from said Self Challenge) and then head to the massage place.

I hope I don't hate it! :)

Mommy guilt is the worst. It's no small thing. My husband has offered to give me entire days to myself, but I almost always decline. I know that I'd just spend my hours subtly feeling bad about not doing more. Of course, that's ridiculous - all of us need time to ourselves!
