There were not enough hours in the day this week. It didn’t help that I have been sick and completely unproductive work wise. I ended up getting in bed around 8pm every night which left little time to work. Don’t you hate weeks like that? It always stresses me out to tell my body to slow down but in the end it is completely necessary. Most of the time it doesn’t feel like I can do it all. I want to come up with more creative content for this site but I need more help with Charlie (but I don’t want to give up the time I have with him) and I want to chat with you guys on social media/share more but I need to be more present when I’m with Charlie (really trying to put the phone down). Overall, it feels like I should always be doing more but at the same time it feels good to just be and take care of what’s important. I didn’t cook (except homemade chicken soup, mmm!) and only worked out three times. Blah. Next week is a new week!
Needless to say I am finally feeling better after visiting the doctor and I’m actually flying to Montreal tomorrow to celebrate my sister’s bachelorette party! I am a little worried about leaving Charlie. This is the first time I’ve been away from him for a weekend without Dave. Dave and I have taken two quick trips just the two of us but never alone. I am feeling this crazy mom guilt and anxiety that something will happen while I’m away or that it will be the last time I get to put him to bed. I am the worst at that – thinking about the worst possible thing that could happen in every situation. In the end, I know that this is needed. Dave goes on golf trips, work trips, etc. and I’m always home. I am going to let my self let loose a little bit (i.e.: go to bed at 10pm instead of 8 ;)). Also, I can’t wait for Dave to experience solo parenting for the first time – ha!
Anyways, if you have any recommendations for Montreal I am ALL EARS. On a completely random note, I want everything from Rebecca Taylor’s new collection. It is so feminine and happy and beautiful. Exactly how I want to feel this spring. Hope you guys have an amazing weekend! xx
