After a long day and two teenagers that can be worse then toddlers when they nag and fight and go on relentless rants. I needed a much needed break, so i try to figure out a way to find some comfort in the night that would lie ahead. I decided to open some windows, pour some red wine and make a beef stew that simmered on the stove for 3 hours. The wine tasted decant and smooth, and the house smelled amazing, and the beef in the stew just fell apart. I may not be able to run away when the stress gets to be too much( aka as being a mother), but i can try to escape in the only way i know how, i try to remember to breathe, pour that red wine, and lose myself in cooking and see my chiropractor! 🙂 Besides poetry, cooking is my escape and i am in much need of a massage! And in much need of hugs! Just saying!
If you are like me, a worn out, good mom who works and does all she can! Open that window, poor that wine, breathe, simmer a delish meal on the stove and go get that massage. The deep tissue is best. But in my opinion any form of touch can be soothing and healing! Hug somebody and be hugged! And remember it will get easier! xoxo That is what i keep telling myself, fingers crossed!!!
