Yesterday I was at school from about 6:50 am til 7:35 pm. On top of being already exhausted, there was a massive car crash on my commute home and it took me 3 hours to get home.
Keep in mind... I go to bed around 9 pm 😂 sooooo I woke up today and was completely dying 😴
Breathe again is not only helping me right off this horrible cough going around school by supporting my breathing but it’s also waking me up on this crazy morning!
Hopefully it doesn’t take me 3 hours to get home today... because of ❄️
“Don’t forget that you’re human.” • Sometimes in life, Murphy’s Law of ‘anything that can go wrong, will go wrong’ comes into full effect. Over the past week I have struggled with a double ear infection, strep throat, sinus issues that I need to see an ENT for and a fall down the stairs. Add to that my mom being taken by ambulance to the hospital for a possible stroke, her being put on FMLA for the next 12 weeks, me becoming in charge of her medical care, launching my Thanksgiving planner and my daughter having her first cheerleading competition—I am one overworked, overwhelmed and downright exhausted Mama. How can so much happen in just 7 days? • I don’t say any of this for sympathy or pity, but to remind you that it’s okay to be human. I’ve been getting mad at my body for not being able to keep up, when really it was trying to tell my mind to slow down so it could heal itself. Slow down, mama’s. You’re no good when you’re running on empty! • Thanksgiving is officially one week from tomorrow and there is still so much to do. However, for now I’m going to take a much needed break and I challenge each of you to do the same if your body or mind is telling you to. If you’re behind on your thanksgiving planning, like I am, be sure to download the Mama & Co. Thanksgiving Planner (link in bio) for $5 while it is still up! I’m all about saving money, too. So if $5 is even too much be sure to subscribe to the Mama & Co. newsletter for 15% off your first Etsy purchase. All proceeds go towards my daughter’s cheerleading competition fees so it is all for a good cause. Now, time for rest. 💤
