What I’m working on…

Self care. It’s so so hard for me to take care of my self. Sure I take the time to go out with my girlfriends here and there but scheduling an appointment for myslef or getting things done for myself has become so hard. I have waves where I take care of my self and then months go by and I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m realty going to try and make those appointments, not cancel them when kids stuff come up and take care of me.

I’m not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. There I said it.

 I find the food boring and bland. But if I had to pick something it would be the stuffing. I love the endless possibilities.Happy Wednesday!
