I very seldom take time to do something for myself. I, like most mothers, put everyone first. I have made a conscious effort to find time to get in some exercise every day weather it's doing abs, going for a walk or what not, I try to do something. I recently connected with another mom in the neighborhood and we are now meeting up to walk. We have gone twice already. We meet up around 3:30 and walk for around an hour a day.
It is nice to get together and walk, which is great because it is a physical outlet that is needed. But, it is so nice to be able to just talk. It is nice to have another stay-at-home mom to just chat with about life. She has a little boy who is a few weeks younger than Colby which is nice too.
I wish I could meet up with someone who is around Blake's age because it would be great for him to have some playmates, but at least this is a start.
I didn't realize how much I missed this type of connection until I found it. Now I just have to hope that it continues to work out for us to meet up and walk.
