  • Give me Thirty…

    Minutes and I’ll give you a scrumptious dinner. I’ll give you two loads of laundry folded and put away. I’ll give you a quick-clean and a little sparkle around the house. And my. God. If I could just use those thirty minutes for mySELF, I could probably give myself a face lift, a pedicure, a deep conditioning for my hair, take a nap to rejuvenate, clean out my bottom drawer(don’t ask) and maybe even snuggle down and read a good book. (I’ve been hankerin’ to read the latest biography on Ayn Rand…). But those thirty minutes are vapors. Just like the kind the air freshener leaves when you spritz to cover up the damage…it’s there and then it’s gone. I can’t seem to nail down those thirty minutes for myself. My thirty minutes are usually divied up between Cylas’ appetite and Roma’s poop. Yes, poop. She’s healthy, what can I say? Or between reading books to Cy and crawling through tunnels with Roma. I’ve even spent my thirty minutes building a train track and in the next breath rocking my little girl to sleep. As I sit and type, however, I can tell you that I do, in fact, get my thirty minutes. For ten minutes in the morning I shower and quickly dress before the children get up, or if they are up, or before I find Roma inconveniently tied to the railing. My second set of ten minutes I find briefly during nap times. I will sit for a few and start creating a shopping list and menu plan for the coming weeks. My last set of minutes comes at the end of the day when I’m washing my face and getting ready for bed. Then I tuck my babies in, pray for them and kiss my sweet husband good night. These are all my thirty minutes. And I love them.
