Just too tired...

This is the second entry in a series I call "El Real Momma"

The purpose is just to be completely "Real" with you all and real with myself. The internet can be a place of fear and sometimes I am afraid of the consequences and the negative results that could come from over-sharing. Don't worry, I am not going to intentionally over-share. But, I am going to share. So here goes:


Making lunches. Morning or night. The battle is on every single day. Do I stay up, downstairs after everyone is tucked snuggly in their beds and make lunches that need to be put back in the fridge until morning? Or, do I head to my cozy bed and lay down? I usually choose laying down and opt for a 20 minute earlier wake up call in the morning. I know it's probably not the best choice. Making lunches at night would probably save me time because I wouldn't be a morning zombie.

But, honestly, I am just too tired. Too too tired for words. In fact, as I write this I am too tired to finish the thought I started with at the beginning of this post. But, I digress. My point is this: we're all worn out. We probably work too hard, some of us may play too hard, maybe we spend too much time volunteering, or make every dinner from scratch or rush to get to the drive thru for breakfast, because we are too late for any other option or maybe we're just tired from every day life. Whatever it is that is wearing us out, remember to let the guilt go (if I just said "Let it Go" then, the ELs break out into song) and take time for yourself. This week, I will get a mani-pedi. That's an almost promise. What will you do for yourself this week?  The end result? A better you. And, isn't that better for all of us!

much love!

Tonight, in spite of all odds, I made lunches. This is just the part that isn't currently being refrigerated. Now, I can rest peacefully. Good night!
