Back From My Blog-Free Zone

By

Well, I took a couple of weeks off from blogging. No excuses, I just had too many other things to concentrate on. I’ve missed ya, though :)

One thing I did last week was have an ADULT evening out. I’ve re-connected with some friends from high school. This particular group of friends are people who were in the school musicals and stage crew (like me). Our two teachers who organized (and worked their asses off) the shows and crew left our old school, and are now both at the same school. They put the show ‘Company’ on, which is one that we did back in the eighties. So, we got together and went to see the show. It was GREAT seeing everybody. We all headed out to Downey’s House after the show, and really got to catch up. We had so much fun, we’ve decided to do it again.

Being out with friends and teachers from high school gave me the chance to have a visit with my old self. Which was kinda nice. I would think that the older I got, the more I would know who I am. To a certain extent, I do. I know how I will react to certain situations, I know my beliefs, and I know that my family is the most important thing in my life. But I’ve found that I’ve lost a bit of me…and I think it’s because I’m so busy taking care of everybody else. You know, the kids need things like food, clothing, baths, activities. My third child (the restaurant) needs all kinds of stuff…a new payroll company, bills paid, ads, blah blah blah. I’m so busy getting stuff for everybody else, Heather sort of comes in last place.

So, on this Mothers’ Day Eve, I’ve decided that I’m going to do something more for myself. I’m going to spend more time with my friends. I’m going to learn something new. I’m going to teach my kids to do some more things on their own (like falling asleep!!!). So, Happy Mothers’ Day to all the moms out there.

Take some time for yourself. Although ‘Mom’ is the most important job we all have, it is not the sole definition of who we are.
