I love to cook, but sometimes, as with most things, with cooking it’s a matter of how I feel.. how I feel about myself, stuff going on around me, if I have to clean my fridge…etc. For the most part, I love cooking because it brings our family closer and I love to make people happy through food. But, once in a great while, when the kids are away at Nana’s, the hubby is away on military duty, and it’s just me and the dogs…Mama don’t feel like cookin!! I probably wouldn’t eat if I didn’t have a family to feed. I could live off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and popcorn. (which I actually did this last weekend).
I try to be a super mom, but yes, even wannabe super heroes need a break. Motivation even. So this is why I do to motivate myself from the weekend off from my wonderful family and to get a new lease on life at home…
1) Glam it up – do something nice for myself, because I deserve it, and nothing motivates me more than a trip to the salon - haircut or a spa mani/pedi…or both. Voila! I’m a new woman…a woman who is ready to take on the world (or at least take on cleaning out my fridge).
2) Make a list! - I make a list of all the things I want to accomplish, and the amount of time it will take to do each task. This way I can break down my 3 day weekend and I’m not overdoing it.
3) Enjoy my just rewards – I get to sit in my fresh clean house, treat myself to frozen yogurt, kick up my pretty feet, read a book…and wait for the tornado of people to walk through my door.
I’m anew and inspired to create dishes and memories with my loved ones.
This is a confession of a working mom!! – Thanks for stopping by
