Kristen said so and I’m pretty sure that makes it official. and I’m pretty sure this is my year – seeing as I am a mom and all. oh, and I have a mom, too.
Our first task (I’m not sure it’s actually been assigned as a task or if other tasks will follow, but it seems very Charlie’s Angels to have tasks and that makes me feel special) during the year of the mom? Share how we’re going to make ourselves a priority. So here goes…
During the year of the mom I’m gonna get a massage at least 3 times a month – I’m hoping for 4, but I don’t want to make that official or anything. I’m also going to try to quit thinking that our move and adjustments are really no big deal – I think this one maybe a little too late, because I’m pretty sure that one year into a move you should be settled. And the last thing I’m going to officially commit to do is not stress over making everyone happy when we make our trip back to the states this summer. It’s supposed to be a vacation for us and I think those are supposed to be enjoyed.
Another important thing to know about this whole year of the mom thing and putting yourself first is that you could win a prize! (i’m not so sure if I can win not living in the US and all, but maybe it makes a difference that I’m going to be in the states this summer…)
