Here in the Sara Rose household, the month of March has been shockingly, mind numbingly busy and overwhelming. From ear infections, weird sinus infections, allergies galore to cars deciding to mysteriously drain our bank accounts to overwhelming amounts of deadlines with school, writing, life and you know being a mama and wife and HUMAN . . . . I could pass out from exhaustion and I may very well do so.
I am so grateful for a two week break before classes and deadlines get heavy again. I'd like to get caught back up and, maybe perhaps, A BIT AHEAD for once. But as I sat decompressing in a hot bath with a huge mug of tea and a face mask, I thought "I am so not alone here. Every mama and daddy has moments where they want to hide in bed for a week just to feel human again!"
|The best place of all, a big comfy bed, waiting for you!|
|Sometimes, mama needs some bubbles and some time to breath.|
-A pile of magazines with a steaming mug of coffee or cocoa.
-My kindle with a piece I've been dying to read, and again a hot mug of goodness or a glass of wine.
-A long walk with the pup, focusing on nothing but enjoying the scenery and taking long, deep breaths.
-Yoga and a bit of meditation where I focus on calming and centering myself through deep, cleansing breaths.
-Cooking up a delicious dinner or baking a yummy treat.
-A movie in bed or on the couch with my hubby.
-Sketching, knitting, or journaling.
-Catching up on things that need done (weirdly, this relaxes me deeply, because I know I haven't got pressing things to attend to).
-A cuddle with my children and hubby, ad a moment to just enjoy being with them.
(I don't think I can say 'just sitting and staring occasionally', can I?)
|Body Luxe salts, lotion and scented oils.|
Now, I have a goodie bag of a BUNCH of Body Luxe products that I want to giveaway very soon. BUT, I want to see ten people respond and let me know how they pamper themselves. If I get 10, then I'll be doing a very special gift in a giveaway!
