Time for me

One of the great things about vacation is the extra time you get. Sure we were busy with things, life happened, but I had some time to do things just for me.

I had lots of time in the car last Saturday by myself (J and I took two cars to the wedding and then the cottage which worked out perfectly) to think and make myself mental do-to lists. I spent the time at R&M's wedding after J and Baby J left just talking to my new and old friends. I got to sleep in a few mornings at the cottage thanks to family helping out with the baby.

And when we were back in town but still on vacation, I got to go shopping by myself. I got a hair cut and new earrings. We spent time rearranging the office-that-will-be-the-new-baby's-room and the basement. We saw family and friends and ate and laughed.

Two posts ago, I set a goal for myself: to floss. I'm happy to say that I've been putting aside those extra 5 minutes before I go to bed, not every night, but often, to floss my teeth. I also got to the prenatal yoga drop in class that I wanted to check out. This was early Sunday morning after J went out Saturday night so it was completely unexpected but completely awesome. It made me feel energized and happy, though I am in nowhere near the same shape I was before Baby J. But that makes me even more excited to get back on the horse and get in shape.

And that hour and a half Sunday mornings is just for me and this new baby. Taking care of myself has moved up the priority list and I couldn't be happier.
