I let my cape air out some days

I mentioned about a month ago right after school started that I was going to do my best to not get overwhelmed being a busy mom and wife. I sometimes say these things and do not always follow through. Well I am proud to report that I have stuck with my decision and couldn't be happier! There are days that I leave some dishes in the sink until the next day. I might give myself a break by not cooking a made from scratch meal and throw something prepackaged on the stove (shocking for me). I have even taken a break from always saying "yes" to everyone. It's been good. I feel so healthy and mentally happy. I know I can't do it all and I make sure I let my cape air out from time to time. Overwhelmed woman does not live here anymore :)

  1. I'm so glad to hear that! We really do deserve a break from being Super Woman all the time! Good for you - nothing wrong with buying that bag of frozen okra from time to time, instead of always washing/snapping it from scratch. Hehe!

  3. Good for you! We are expected to do so much. Sometimes we have to say NO!
