Alright, things have gotten waaay out of control! I was doing some thinking last night (and yes, it hurt my brain) and realized that I hadn't showered for a day and a half. Gross! So this thought naturally led me to wonder where things got so out of control that I don't even shower everyday. Have I seriously given up so much to raise my kids that even my showers are far and few between?
If you're a SAHM, I'm sure (at least I'm hoping anyway) that I can't be alone in this. I miss my private shower time! My showers are the only place that I seem to be able to have one continuous thought from beginning to end. Normally my train of thought gets derailed by a spilled glass of sticky something or a fragrant butt running around.
It's so nice to be able to stand in there and just, even if it's for 15 minutes, be by myself. I often find myself standing in there under the running water daydreaming. You know those thoughts that we all have that always start with 'what if'? Like what if I hadn't met my husband and had kids, what would I be doing? What if I put the kids in daycare and went back to work? What if I lost 100 lbs, do you think I could wash down the drain and make a clean break for it?
It's always somewhere around this point that reality slaps me in the face in the form of an empty hot water heater. Darn it, do I really have to get out and hit the ground running again? Oh well, at least I got my shower!
