Sorry Friends, it's been a week and a half since my last blog post. I had a week and two days in between auto shows after not being home for almost the entire month of February, so I decided to take that time and spend quality time with my family, my friends, and myself.
I fell right back into the grove, mom-duty in full effect. My daughters and I played princesses, read stories, practiced yoga, made dinner together, went to 2 basketball games, played school with real learning, played games, went shopping, and enjoyed the wonderful weather the east coast had to offer. We even went for family pedicures at our local nail salon. My husband and I, are always secondary, I'm afraid to admit. However, we were able to have our usual quiet time after the girls went to bed. Good conversations, NBA, and our new favorite show, T.I. and Tiny: Family Hustle. We, as a family, ate dinner together every night; which is so important to us and our relationship with each other.
I even had the opportunity to spend time with my long lost mom-friends, with a dinner at CPK. I spent time with my cousins as we supported our favorite athlete, Taylor Reynolds & Newark High School Basketball. The girls and I also enjoyed visiting with my 97 year old grandmother. I ate lunch and spent a day with my mother and my cousin Arthea (p.s. Happy Bday!).
This was a jammed pack week, but I still found time for myself. I attended my favorite BodyFlow and yogilates class at my local YMCA, plus some really good runs. I registered myself for the Delaware marathon, and had a physical at the doctors. I spent time catching up on my magazine subscriptions, and reading a new book. You already know, my local favorite Starbucks was visited, as well. I went to bed every night happy and relaxed after good meditation sessions, and woke up refreshed. I took the time to turn off technology, and enjoy my time at home with my family. My time at home was wonderful, I can't wait until April 16th, when I am off from auto shows for the summer!!
Whether you have every day at home, a couple hours every day, or a couple days a month/year... Take the time to spend quality time with yourself, your family and friends. Don't dwell on the negatives and the fact that you have to leave again, instead make the time special and positive, and look forward to more special quality time in the future. Quality time is good and healthy for your Soul!!
