Matt took the kids to the natural history museum in Raleigh today. The kids sounded a little disappointed that I wouldn't be joining them. I've opted to stay home and clean bathrooms, sweep floors, send emails, pay bills and generally get caught up on some of the "work" I feel behind on. It's one of those tough decision-making moments when I decide between spending time with my family versus taking care of me. I need to stay home and make some head-way on things stressing me out today. Next week, when Matt is back at work and my mom is here, I'll feel more free to play with the kids and soak up their last week of summer break. I suppose I'm grateful for a couple things: Matt's love of Dad-only adventures with the kids and my self-awareness regarding self-care.
