It's Time for a Pass, Again!


I'm tired. I'm whooped. All this craziness has caught up with me. I think it's a super-busy time for everyone, right now. So....it's time to break out The Pass.

That's right, you get a pass, I get a pass, we all get a pass.

Take a break. Enjoy a bubble bath, read a book, give yourself permission to spend time alone. Take a day off of work. Grab some extra sleep. Grab some extra me-time (and if you just said "me-time? what's that?" then you must take EXTRA me-time!! stat!) And guilt is absolutely NOT permitted.
The laundry can wait. The cobwebs aren't going anywhere. Pizza for dinner one night won't hurt anyone.
I totally agree with those who say that we are better parents when we make sure to take time to ourselves on a regular basis.

So, now you have a pass. No excuses. Take the pass and use it. Pass it on if you'd like!

Funny thing is, I take your advice every night at work. I put my feet up and read my book AND finished it. I could have done schedules but I took a pass! Thanks!

I'll take a pass!!! :-)

I relaxed in a bubble bath, last night, with a good book. Was wonderful after a rather busy day.

I think, that sometimes, we are so busy caring for others, we forget to take time to pamper ourselves..

A good reminder..

Since my kid is grown and lives in another part of the state and since my hubby and I veg out every night in front of the tv, computer, and/or read, I guess you could say I take passes frequently. I really do love a good book. Thanks for the pass.

Oh you are so sweet. Passes like these are a lifesaver sometimes. Hope you were able to use this pass for yourself, too!
