Those days of being a Supermom are supposed to be over, right?
Then why do I still feel compelled to do everything and be everywhere?
Exhibit No. 1: My daughter has a soccer tournament coming up in Myrtle Beach. We were planning to leave Friday night, but I have to work that evening. I thought well, I'll just drive down Saturday morning. I really do want to see her play.
My husband suggested I just stay home and take a free weekend. Did you hear that? A FREE WEEKEND! (I love that man!) It makes total sense. I wouldn't have to drive a total of seven hours to spend just 24 hours there. I would save gas, mileage on my car and the cost of pet boarding.
But, I still want to go. Look out, crazy train coming my way!
I start thinking that all of the kids will be out of the house in 10 years, only 10 years! I need to get it all in because they'll be gone quicker than that last brownie!
I know one missed weekend won't kill me. There will be more. I need to imagine a quiet house, MY shows on TV and MY wake-up time.
Feeling better already.
