ME challenge - Week 21

Dollimama took the week off, so I am linking up with the lovely MandyE! Thanks Mandy for hosting this week!! I hope dollimama and her sweet baby girls are partying it up right now!! What? You only turn ONE once!


This was not a great week for ME time. I have had an emotionally draining week do to all the tornado devastation around me. No, none of it hit me on a personal level, but still is weighing heavily on my heart. I really wish financially I could help more. So very sad!

As I mentioned in a previous post Todd was out of town when OK got hit hard Tuesday. He was actually only supposed to be gone 1 night, but due to weather his flight was postponed 1 day. This made me have to take one afternoon off work early to relieve my Mom, so I am claiming that as my ME time this week! It was a beautiful day, so I played with my kids outside. So much fun!

It's nice to be able to enjoy a nice day with your kids off from work. Thanks for commenting on my post. I really need to watch my health, especially now that I have to watch out for issues due to preeclampsia! I hope things are well with you!

I know what you mean about the tragedy weighing heavily on your heart even though it didn't effect you on a more personal level. I always feel that way when I hear about human suffering. The Japanese quake made me feel the same. I sent money, but it felt almost trivial because I couldn't send more. I know it wasn't though - does that make any sense?

Some weeks it is hard to focus on ourselves for a moment. But the afternoon playing outside with the kids definitely counts!

Thought of you a lot this week! Glad to hear you guys are alright and that you are valuing your time together!

I've been thinking about all the communities who've been devastated by the recent natural disasters. Hopefully love, hope, faith, and community can help to repair all the damage (physical and emotional) that's been done.

Although it was unplanned and due to necessity, it's nice that you were able to take a day off and spend it with your kids. Even nicer that the weather was cooperative too. :o)
