Much needed ME time today


Thanks to a friend, today I have had a couple hours of quality ME time. I can't tell you just how nice it has been to have some quiet time, by myself, to take some deep breaths and work in my art journal. WOW! What a difference it has made. Lately I have been sort of moping around not feeling too happy. Its very hard with the kids home from school and my little Gillian requires nearly constant attention. I sometimes feel so guilty for feeling such a need to have time for myself. But at the end of some quality quiet time I feel re-energized. I feel like I can take care of everyone better and the mood in the house is much happier :)

Are you kidding???? Any mom who says she doesn't need a break sometimes is LYING! I always say I'm a better mom after some time just for me. I'm glad you got some "ME time" and that you're feeling better! As always your art is amazing!

AMEN to filling yourself up Kristy. It is so hard to be constantly putting out energy without replenishing. We are better Moms when we can give to ourselves as well.

Beautiful beautiful piece.

This is a fantastic piece - very Kristy! I love everything about it.

And there is nothing wrong with needing time for yourself! That's what babysitters and friends are for.
