A Day Off…but not really!


Me, baking at Aunt Lillian’s House,
a Million Years Ago!

Well, here it is, the end of January and I took a planned day off. Not necessarily for fun, but because I had 2 doctor appointments. Again, not necessarily for me, one for Tonya the dog to get her yearly shots and the second for my mother’s every 3 month appointment. Don’t get me wrong, I love having a day off, my time, time at home in the house I work so hard to pay for, but at the same time, I would love for life to slow down a bit so that I could actually sit back and enjoy my own time.

There are so many things in life that I would love to do, such as working on this blog, my artwork, a winter sport of crocheting, indoor gardening, cooking, sewing, all things that I love doing. All the things that actually make me who I am, but unfortunately, poof, reality hits and there you are. Of course, I want to do all that  can for the well-being of my family members, but what has changed from 30 years ago? We took care of the family back then also, but today, something has changed to make life, one task after another with no relief in-between.

No matter, we do it for the better of the family, for the better of the household, for the better of everyone, except us. Life in this milenium has most women losing themselves, losing who they are or were or aspire to be, and wondering where the simplicity of the past has gone. There is definitely something to be said for the wonder years, for the baby boomers, the 50’s and 60’s. The 70’s were more simplistic, even with all the unrest.

The one person that saved the day was Cardine!
