I’ve stared at a blank screen for well over an hour this morning.
Okay, that’s not true.
I should probably say, I opened this screen well over an hour ago. Then immediately got up to make neocitron, because at this point with my current cold, I’m basically a cold medicine addict.
Then, sat back down and stared at the screen again while drinking neocitron. Then, Mr. MPB informed me Little MPB is awake. So I drank really quickly, while still staring at the screen and mumbling that I’m not ready to start the day. Then, I went upstairs to get Little MPB up. (He demanded to wear his jammas today, so we are having an impromptu pajama day because some battles just aren’t worth having). Then we came downstairs to have a dinosaur “roaring” contest and a tickle fight while Mr. MPB got himself ready for the day. Upon Mr. MPB’s arrival downstairs, I came back to this screen.
Once again, I stared at it. Then, I decided it’s time for a shower as I have meetings outside of the house today. So, I went and showered and took the time to actually blow-dry my hair as meetings necessitate that I don’t wear a baseball hat. Then, I returned to eat breakfast with Mr. MPB and Little MPB. Of course, Little MPB promptly stole from me (Little MPB is a firm believer that whatever food someone else has is better then the food he has, even if they are the exact same) so I grabbed a piece of left over pizza, because Little MPB wont eat pizza (the kid is weird, what can I say?). Next, it was time to get Little MPB ready for daycare, which meant he needed his sandal-shoes and a snuggle. At the same time Mr. MPB ran through our plans for the day to sort out who was where when and what needed to be done. After that, Little MPB said bye bye and I returned to the blank screen.
Now, many of you probably don’t care about the MPB crazy morning dash to get everyone ready for the day. I’m pretty sure everyone, everywhere has a similar mad-dash morning routine.
But, their is a point to this:
I just don’t seem to have the time these days. Between parenting and working, I just never seem to have more then 30 seconds to myself to do basically anything I want. Hair cuts used to be every 6ish weeks, now they seem to be every 10ish weeks. Pedicures, I only made time for one pedicure this summer after my heals were so dry that they started to crack and bleed. Grocery shopping is usually a mad dash through the store with a very unhappy toddler who’d rather be doing anything but grocery shopping. Evenings, after Little MPB goes to bed, are used for catching up on work because I just don’t have enough time otherwise. Exercise, I don’t even want to talk about that. Photography, I’m not even sure where my camera is at the moment. Writing, clearly isn’t happening as much as I like/want/need it to.
I miss having a few minutes to just breath. Maybe next week will be better?
