Is It Wednesday ALREADY?!?!?



Is it Wednesday, ALREADY?!?!?!

(Insert HUGE, EXASPERATED sigh HERE!).
 
Last week was such a crazy whirlwind of activity. Somehow between working with my organizing clients, attending community board meetinings, volunteering at my daughters' school, planning for Easter weekend company, and working as BOTH a full-time Mom and a full-time business owner, I found time to come down with a full blown case of bronchitis! I'm talking the hacking, crackly, monster of a cough variety that would send a grown man running away in terror!
 
So did I slow down? Did I take the time to take care of MYSELF for once?
 
Heck, no! It's not in the working Mom's contract. Not even in the fine print!
 
Don't get me wrong, I have a WONDERFULLY helpful husband and two GREAT girls that begged me to take a rest and reminded me to take my medicine.
 
But the GUILT! Oh, the wonderful GUILT!! I'm the MOM! I'm the business owner! I can't slow down. My family and business NEED me!
 
I know I'm not alone on this one. Why do otherwise rational and intelligent women not recognize the fact that we need, NO, we DESERVE to take care of ourselves, too. Why do we constantly, and consistently, fall into the Superwoman Trap?
 
Well, today I'm strong-arming myself to take a break, and take a "Personal Day." I'll be the one at Starbucks swooning over my Tall Skinny Latte and reading my latest decorating magazine.
 
Of course, first I need to run to my daughter's second-grade class to help with an egg hunt. And then, of course, I need to run to the grocery store after I meet with a new vendor for the business. But I SWEAR, AFTER ALL that, I'm heading to coffee-land and relaxation-hopefully it wont be Thursday, by then!!
