Ah now this week I actually have something for you ladies. Or for me I suppose. I made time. I grabbed that "no boys allowed" sign and held it high. Oh was it ever needed.
So, as you may know, my sister was over this weekend. USUALLY because it's the weekend boys are with us at all times. If not both then Son, but I needed to do a little birthday shopping for Husband so he dropped Sister and I off at at Freeport shopping center and we got to work!
On drinking lots of coffee and talking.
Nada shopping was done. We gave up after reaching the 3rd shop and realizing we couldn't recall what the two shops we'd been in previously were. You know when you are so into a conversation that you are on auto pilot and you do the motions (in our case, browsing) but aren't there? This happened, so eventually we retired to Starbucks where we talked, caffeinated ourselves and chain smoked.
It was one of those talks that needed a cigarette to go with it. One of those deep emotional talks about childhood and now being an adult. For me it really helped and it felt good to talk to someone who understood.
I'm glad we did it. I though now, of course, am constantly worried for her. But she is strong. She is like me.
So success for my Theta Mom Thursday! Since Theta Mom started this though it really made me realize how involved I am with everybody else. It's shocking how hard it is to find 1 selfish hour in a week... 1 hour out of 168.. I didn't manage to make it for the last 2 weeks and it just made me realize how although super that is for everyone else in my life, it's not so super for me. 1 hour! Must try harder.
I would have never thought I would have to push myself to be selfish. The things kids do to you.
