Well, I've been MIA for a while. I mentioned to my blog friend "The Mrs." that I've been feeling quite overwhelmed lately with life. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I like to do everything as best as I can and a lot of times this leaves me exhausted and frustrated because sometimes I just can't do it all. Well, I'm happy to report I'm fine now, better than fine actually. With a little help-I had an Oprah "Ah Ha" moment and I know that asking for help and maybe not ironing the bed linens 100% of the time is fine and taking care of "you" should come before laundry. So, I'm trying this approach and it's working for me. To all of you super moms and just plain super ladys out there doing a great job of taking care of your family and friends don't forget to take good care of you!
On another note, I read this today and I thought I'd pass it along. I think I'm pretty good about this but it never hurts to hear these steps again. We should all make sure to cherish precious moments. If you don't they'll slip away and might not become part of the wonderful memories engraved in your heart.
