Do you know what the best thing about being self employed is?
Yes, you can give yourself holidays and sick-leaves.
Amidst kids and chaos, maternity and sickness, I am more than needing a few weeks break right… about… now. Why? Read on…
The lesson I learnt last year, is a lesson learned well. What is that? If you don’t take care of yourself, nobody else can. I have surgery coming up soon and I am, already, just out of one and then, there is our very new baby. Between being post-partum and weak from the illness two months ago, I need to be in top shape by next month. A good night’s sleep, something which I am really not getting, is what I need. Sadly, it looks like our baby has colic. I am thinking, if not night, then atleast a nap or two through the day would suffice to keep me running after one little boy, one little toddler and one little baby. Yes, I need sleep.
My kids have seen it very rough the past few months. Their mom was sick and in and out of hospitals. The older one thought his mother was dying and younger one thought she didn’t love her anymore. We have since bridged the gaps and taught ourselves to sleep through the night again but this isn’t enough. We still need our home to feel the way it did before. We want to have playdough in our hair and slippery floors and the smell of freshly baked cookies back in our home. This blog will have to wait. Mommy can’t write, shoot, photoshop, share, tweet, pin, socialise while she is making Jelly bean kabobs and hand-gliders, can she?
It is Spring Break for schools here and my son is home. I am taking this time off to make him feel that his mommy is one hundred percent his and that his little sisters are his fun loving playmates. It is going to be challenge keeping them all happy together and I’d like to tackle that challenge while I stay offline.
As, I were saying, you know the best thing about being self employed? Yes, you can give yourself holidays, as and when you need them. You know the best thing about being a blogger? Yes, you have like minded people cheering you, sharing your happiness and your worry and wondering where you have dissappeared. So…
See you around.
