Alone Time.....Pleaseeee!

Let's face it, there are times when we feel like the walls are closing in on us.  It doesn't matter if you are a stay at home mom, working mom, single mom, empty nest mom or a single woman who does it all alone.  Sometimes the responsibilities, duties and obligations feel like they are pushing you into the ground.  I'm having one of those periods in my life right now and something has got to give!  I've over extended myself in various categories and I'm seriously feeling it!  Most women are smart enough to know when it's time to take a break.  Although most of us worry if the world will keep spinning on it's axis if we do.

Well I've decided to take a chance.  It's a shame in itself that I'm considering taking a break as taking a chance.  I have a 1 week vacation coming up in July and on the first day of that vacation, I've put everyone on notice.  LEAVE ME ALONE!  On that day, my Ikea Lack side table will be my stationary butler as it will hold a glass of ice water, my Nook and my new Samsung Galaxy 5.  Between mini naps, I can eat and read the June, July and August issues of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle Decor.  I'll probably take time to pin some fall fashions to my Style Room board on Pinterest and most of all, just really take time to think about the life I want for myself and my daughter.  I think I will make a sign for my bedroom door that reads, "No Inquiries, Questions or Complaints" just so I can be completely clear and of course because some people are visual and not verbal learners.

P.S.  I will post an updated picture of my side table on my "Alone Time" day.
