And don’t even get me started on how much I love this chick. She may not even realize what a constant source of support and motivation she’s been for me and my whole Mom Sexy journey, but she has truly made a difference in my life. She ups my confidence when I need it, and she gives me a good dose of Mom Sexy when I’m just not feeling it. Seeing her pop up on my Facebook page or my Twitter stream instantly brightens my day!
When I saw that The Mommyologist was doing a weekly Mom Sexy thing I decided to beg let her know I was available should she want me to write something up (pick me! pick me! pick me, puleeze!)
Of course after I said I’d do this I had nothing to write about. I’d already blogged about Mami Swagger in regards to shoes, andhair. I also blogged about working out, but that was a mistake on my part and I have since corrected it by going from Ripped in 30 to faded in 50. What else was there to write about? And how could I make it all inspirational like (apparently someone’s been giving me Klout scores for inspiration so now I have something to live up to! Stop it people!)
Now, I had a shitload ton of things to do around the house (did I mention I still have things in boxes and clothes thrown about in the closet?). But I realized that I needed ME time to get my frazzled self in order. I don’t get it often and ever since the layoff, I get it even less. You’d think that after losing my job I’d have more time but noooo, this full-time-work-from-home mami shit is TOUGH!
Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather spend time with my frog princess more than with anyone else in the world (well, except maybe 15 minutes with Boris Kodjoe or Shamar Moore, I have my needs, dammit)! But I have come to realize that in order for me to get in touch with the Sexy Mami that I have always been, I need time for myself.
