Today Jaxon and I aren’t feeling so great! We rested all morning, then we went to Isabelle’s fourth b-day party. Jaxon had a blast. Jaxon has another friend named Danny. He and Danny were fast best friends! Danny was born in Feb 2005, just 2 months before our Jaxon. Danny’s parents have invited Jaxon over to play anytime. He went over there last Friday night so Joey and I could go on a date. Danny came to our house last night, so he parents could go on a date. Danny’s mom told me last night that Jaxon should come over today to play. Jaxon started talking about and asking for Danny at about 7:00 this morning, so I called Danny’s mom to see if it would be alright for Jax to go play. She was excited for Danny to have a playmate!
Joey left the b-day party early to go golfing (his new passion). Once Jaxon was at Danny’s, that left me alone. Time to myself is definitely something I used to take for granted. Nowadays when I do have a few minutes to myself I don’t know what to do with it because there is so much I’d like to do! Tonight I decided to come home & get a book I just started and treat myself to a manicure/pedicure. It was wonderful, and I feel relaxed and refreshed! I need to learn not to feel guilty for treating myself every now and then. I have to really pump myself up once I am doing something for myself, because my mind starts telling me that I should use the money and time for other things. Like needs such as clothes for Jaxon, groceries, savings, etc…. Tonight I am just thankful that I was able to take some much needed time for myself and indulge…just a little!
Time is such a crazy thing. It goes by SO fast. When people tell you that in regards to your children, we just smile and agree, but inside it makes me sad. I’m happy because Jaxon is growing up in the lord, but sad because I’m afraid I’m missing so much! I know we’ve all heard it before, but I am really trying to live every day like it is my last. Carpe Diem! Seize the day!
