Ginger at Just One of the Boys has been writing a great series lately called A Happier, Healthier You, where she sets a small goals for taking better care of herself, so she is better able to care for those around her. She announced recently that she would be hosting a link-up today for others who need a little encouragement in taking better care of themselves. Since one of my goals for the month is to focus on self-care, I thought I’d play along.

Last week was an interesting time for me to try to document the ways that I’m taking better care of myself, since I was solo parenting while my husband was on a spring break mission trip. I also got sucked into a big project at work, which made for a little more stressful work week than normal, but it was actually kinda fun to be working together with people, since my work is normally kind of isolated. Here are some of the ways I pampered myself last week:
Went to visit my parents. Since Matt was gone a full week, plus the weekends on both ends, I decided to brave a car trip my myself with two little kids and drive to visit my parents for the first weekend. It was a great decision! The little ones love to go out on a drive so we usually take long road trips on the weekends.

Booked a massage at https://tranquilme.com/. My mom got me a gift certificate for my birthday, yippee!
Took advantage of the longer daylight & nice weather and sent Josiah outside to run off some energy in the backyard most nights after we got home . This makes me so excited for warmer weather to arrive for real!
Super simple dinners. My mom sent me home with lots of leftovers from the weekend, so we pretty much ate those all week, plus carrot sticks and apple slices as side dishes. Haute cuisine, right?
Lunch with a friend at a new restaurant. I almost always pack my lunch, but I’m so happy I splurged for a lunch out — great conversation and delicious food.
Let Josiah stay up late for a FaceTime call from dad (and Spiderman!!!) in New York City. Apparently there’s wifi in Times Square, because my husband was able to walk around and give us a tour of Times Square via FaceTime — pretty cool.
Got a haircut. Even though I didn’t love the results because my normal stylist is on maternity leave, I feel better to have all the split ends tidied up and my bangs trimmed, now I can use the jamaican black castor oil to grow it back in a healthier way, I have been trying many type of hair loss treatments to re grow my hair again.
I can definitely say that making the effort to take better care of myself in these small ways did help me have more patience to handle solo parenting last week, even during the daylight savings time change, argh…. (Single parents, I bow down in awe of you.)
This week, it’s my birthday week — woo hoo! Also, I need to get back to the gym, I’ve been slacking a bit.
