I don’t know about everyone else, but I certainly feel like I have been insanely busy since the beginning of December! Today marks my son’s 14th birthday and we just finished a weekend birthday celebration with family. I’m exhausted, to put it mildly, with getting the kids back to their school routines, keeping track of schedules and trying to organize my own projects, I feel like I’m treading water. 2015 is in full swing with birthday line ups quickly coming up. I’ll be celebrating at least one birthday every month for the rest of the year.
Birthdays and trips to plan, budgeting and purchasing food seems to be my norm these days. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love celebrating birthdays and such I just feel like I haven’t been able to come up for air. Being a mom of 6 and having them all under one roof is definitely a balancing act, maintaining relationships with each one as well as with extended family and friends sometimes leaves me completely exhausted.
At times like these I opt to retreat to my studio, listen to some R & B music (Anita Baker and Mary J. Blige 😀 ) give myself a mani/pedi and try to calm and clear my mind. I scroll through destination getaways and dream about being on white sand beaches enjoying the sun.
I watch through my window as the fluffy snow floats down and I am reminded how this tension will soon pass. I exhale my stress and focus on getting through my lists while keeping myself sane! Whew!
Forward and onward we go!
Much love y’all wish me luck!!
