The highlight of my day today (Well, aside from Jennifer Marine, author of No One’s the Bitch, liking the review I wrote about her book, and linking to my blog!) was my Bud Light Lime and Tostitos Chips and Salsa. Sometimes, New Breed Mamas just need an ice cold beer and some chips and salsa!
After a long day at the office, I picked up my son and did some running around to prepare for my girlfriend’s bridal shower and bachelorette party coming up this weekend. Finally, after hitting Giant Eagle, Michael’s, and Walmart, I made it home. Then, I broke out the Bud Light Lime and Tostitos Chips and Salsa while I put away groceries and started dinner.
This has been a long week and I am so glad tomorrow is Friday! This week, I have been working all day, taking care of kids all evening, and writing all night, which doesn’t leave much time left over for sleep! Also, if you’ve read my post from yesterday, you know that I found out this week that my second round of infertility treatment was not successful. That kind of week can take a toll on a New Breed Mama.
So, tonight it was time for me to take a minute and follow my Rule #1 from A New Breed Mom’s Guide to Life: Top 10 Ways to Reduce Stress for the Woman Trying to do it all! And that’s exactly what I did! I carved out a few minutes of ‘me time’ by blasting the stereo, drinking my ice cold Bud Light Lime and chomping on some good old Tostitos Chips and Salsa.
What do you do to alleviate stress at the end (or in the middle) of a difficult week?
