Slacker & Valentine’s Day



I’m a slacker… There’s no other way to say it other than I have not been able to figure out how to find time for myself. That means that The Mindful Mama is suffering, I’m on the very edge of exhaustion &  burnout, I haven’t been able to do yoga in WAY too long and I have even been slacking off on my cooking and cleaning. I am balancing so many plates right now & at some point they’re all going to come crashing down around me if I don’t figure out how to stack them better and quickly at that! I can feel it coming…th62G4IVGB

It’s amazing to me the way nature works. I was so tired that I slept through my alarm this morning. Not only did I sleep through my alarm, but I also slept through 3 calls from my sitter and her banging on the door for 10 minutes this morning! She got so worried (thanks for loving us enough to worry Tita) that she called my Dad at work. If the Tiniest human wouldn’t have whimpered (I’m talking about a tiny grunt as he stretched and rolled over) I wouldn’t have heard the phone ring when my Dad called me! I can sleep through all that with the phone literally right by my head, but my children barely make a sound & I jump up immediately.  The way God created the mind and abilities of us Mama’s is truly amazing! Needless to say I made it to work and I was only a few minutes late…

thX9P14GS1My new job is amazing. I am loving the people I work with. But, my favorite part, everything is brand spankin’ new! The entire kitchen is so clean & shiny! me & 3 other girls get to unpack, clean & organize everything. So we get to set up the kitchen exactly how we want. If there’s anything we want/need (like a few more shelves on the walls or more tongs, etc) we tell our boss and he will get it for us. Tomorrow I get to set up my bar! I didn’t like where the guy installed the drink dispenser gun so I told my manager and he had them come back and move it to where I wanted. (It was in a really awkward spot, right above the hand sink at the very beginning of the bar so I would have had to literally go out of my way every single time I needed it, which is a lot)  SO, anyway, I get to use everything brand new & clean and I’m not having to go into a dump and try to fix 30 other peoples mess… It’s awesome…

So, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I have yet to do a post for y’all with ideas, crafts,


Daddy’s V-Day card


The small one coloring on Daddy’s card

recipes, or anything of that nature. Like I said, I’m a slacker… I just realized that it’s the tiniest one’s first V-Day tomorrow and I didn’t make or even buy him an outfit, shirt, bib, nothing… I did manage to send out a cute V-Day art thing for hubby from his boys…

Anyway, my small human has literally been screaming from his bed for like 15 minutes now. I guess that means he will not be going to sleep yet :/  Maybe I’ll get to make another post soon..

11:45 p.m. and I have FINALLY been able to get the boys to sleep! Now let’s see if I have enough energy left to write hubby a letter, do 10 minutes of yoga and shower. Let’s pray I am able to wakeup on time in the morning!

How are y’all celebrating the love present in your life? It doesn’t have to be a significant other. It can be your parents, children, friend, extended family, pets, etc. Let’s take the time to show the people in our lives how much they matter! How are y’all doing that this Valentine’s Day?


Namaste Y’all ❤
