making time

Keira before the haircut. Long hair. Beautiful any which way.

Keira waiting for her haircut, cake pop in hand. She stopped eating this one because it wasn't cooked! Shame on you Starbucks.  Hope she doesn't get sick.

Well, I finally made some time to get my hair coiffed. My last cut wasn't growing out very well. Oh heck, let's be honest, it looked horrible. I looked horrible! The blunt angle cut the stylist gave me the last time grew out very heavy on the bottom and flat on top. It's pretty much the same length as before now but feathered out. Ah... I also decided to get Keira's hair cut at the same time. Pourquoi pas?

Keira after the haircut (yes! she requested the curls again), chocolatine in hand. She was very hungry today.

Ever feel like your wheels are spinning at top speed but you're not getting anywhere fast? I've been feeling this way for a while now. I really need to stop putting myself last and start making some time for myself. My health and body is suffering. I have no one to blame but myself. Ever feel like you're on the go all day long and when you finally have the time to sit down, your head is still buzzing and you just stay up all night searching for something.. Relief. Peace. Something to soothe you to sleep. Anything. That's me in a nutshell. I pin. I read blogs. I watch TLC's Long Island Medium. I work on freelance projects. I suffer from insomnia. Then I wake up feeling wrecked in the mornings but still force myself to run on the treadmill at 6:30am. But it's not a great workout half the time because I'm feeling wrecked.

I have to stop putting myself on the back burner. But how??

:( I wish I had an easy answer. Maybe start with what makes you truly happy and put aside the rest?
When I stay up too late doing exactly what you described, Mark sometimes tells me to just stop it and go to bed. Sometimes I do :)

As for putting yourself last...I know the feeling. Love my kids to death, but man are they demanding!

Yep, you know I'm in your boat too. If I come up with an answer, I'll let you know. :) LOL
Wish we could all just go out on the town together & have some fun. Keira sure is a cutie btw...love those sun glasses!
