Put your feet up, take a load off...

When you ask? Where? How?

Ever wonder how moms do that? Get a chance to relax, put their feet up, breathe, take a second to themselves?

I didn't think we got to do such a marvel, until I figured it out today. I finally figured out how and I am going to share my secret with you!

I was just wishing for a little time away from this...

Ahh yes, what happens to my pristine kitchen on weekends when the family is all home, all "off duty" and all in a rush for the caboodle of things on our daily lists....

So today I made that wish and got that wish! There I was, reading a magazine, feet up, no one talking to me but myself, just lounging around...a beautiful picture isn't it? One that we all beg for.

Well I am here to tell you the secret, but be careful what you wish for! That picture is in truth quite a bit different....

This...was my quiet place!

My feet, yes they are propped on a doctors table. And that my dear friends is my lovely hospital gown. I was "relaxing" at Instacare. See earlier today hubby made me finally go in to get checked.

I went last night to meet a bunch of wonderful ladies (post update to come) from the blog world. It was tons of fun, however my head felt like it was going to explode the whole time and I had to try to contain myself from sounding like I was death warmed over.

So after a miserable night and several soccer games and pictures today he suggested, um, insisted, I go to get it checked. My facebook update: "At instacare, hubby is makin me go....they'll probably tell me it's just a cold and to get over it...." As you can tell I didn't think it was much.

I was sure I was just being a baby. However the time started ticking on, they needed to check my ears, which was complicated to say in the least, and had to do an x-ray etc etc. So I got my everlong wish. Time alone.

With that wish
I owed hubby a rare, "you're right". With that wish also came bronchitis, sinus infection and an ear infection.

So my suggestion to you? Watch what you wish for. You may figure out the secret, but you might just get more than you bargained for!


  1. Oh no! Sorry your are so sick! It's good you listened to your husband and got checked out. Though, when you're feeling better I definitely think you need some REAL alone time. :)

  2. yuck. Hope you get feeling better! So great meeting you friday.

  3. That's awful, I'm sorry to hear that you had all of those. I wish you the best and hope that you get better soon!

  4. Sorry you've been under the weather.

    My name is Tauni and I run a conference called SNAP. Periodically, I have opportunities for local bloggers to participate in a special event. I would love to include you in future invitations, but I can't find an email address for you. If you could send me a note with your contact information (including last name :)) I would love it!

  5. Thanks all! I am still coughing but sure it must end sometime soon!

  6. It's good that you are having a time off but I wish it's not on a clinic next time. Hope you're feeling all well now.


If you read this at all, first I LOVE you for it! And second, can you please "follow" me? I just like to get a handle on how many are really enjoying my blog at all. When I see followers I have a small estimated idea. Second, I think comments will REALLY help me make this blog what YOU want to see! I LOVE them and will read each and every one very careful! Even if it is just to say HI I read it and I liked/disliked this post.

Thanks for helping me out and taking an interest in my tiny girl colored corner of the world!

Hope you are all good and stop by often!!
