Weight on Your Shoulders
I never know what exactly triggers it. Most of us haute moms are busy because, well, we are haute. We juggle our roles of employee, mother, child, cook, creative soul, wife, sibling, and whatever other roles we choose to fill in our daily lives. Usually it is effortlessly and with style. Sometimes, however, those balls we are juggling all come crashing down into a useless heap on the floor.
As a woman, some spa time, a drink with the ladies, or a quiet night at home is enough to rejuvenate us. Now I find that some of our roles (like being a mom) don't offer any time off and finding that important time is next to impossible. The hubby asked me today why I needed any time, especially when he never gets any time off. You can imagine where that conversation ended up. Tonight I am struggling with finding my place, and picking up all of those balls that have fallen. To be honest, some I would rather just leave on the floor. While there once was a day I could steal for myself when times got rough, I know that tomorrow, the alarm will go off, Stella will be up, and I will be forced to deal with my twelve hour day. I guess I need to find a new way to rejuvenate; one that is a lot less time consuming. For now, maybe I will just go by a really hot pair of heels online.
