Time out Thursday
It has been a few weeks since I have actively participated in my favorite Thursday blog event. The holidays have kept me hopping. But I found the way back to my happy place, my computer, and I am here to tell you all about My Thursday Time out for Mom.
As always, if you are new to my blog and have no idea what I am speaking of, then you need to scurry that little tush of yours over to Theta Mom, and have a little looksee about what all the fuss is about. You see, Theta Mom has made a pledge to the blogging world and this pledge has spread like wild fire throughout the world of motherhood.
Moms must take 1 hour per week, and yes that says 1 hour per week, to themselves. No Hubbs, no kids, No dirty dishes, no laundry. 1 hour of time that is devoted to just mom. 1 hour to do something alone and for mom, in hopes that mom can continue to keep her sanity and all the other moms out there wont have to hear about her on the evening news doing something stupid. So Theta Mom is our Queen Bee in this endeavor. She brought forth this pledge and makes sure we all keep our pledge to the cause. She has up report in on Thursday, link up and share our fabulous stories of how we so selfishly took 1 hour during a 7 day period to our self!
So here is what I did this week for my mom time...
I went on a job interview. Woohoo! Fabulous time out right? Well I was alone. No hubbs, No Baby DIVA, no dirty dishes, there was a bit of trash on the floorboard or my car because I am a car slob but i didn't clean it, so it doesn't count. The time alone was spent for me, so it counts right?
Well I applied for the job last Thursday evening. It was a work from home position deemed Data Mining. In layman's terms ( I learned later) this is basically reviewing medical records and "mining" specific information and then compiling it into database format for litigation attorney's. Right up my alley. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when at 730am on Friday morning I got the call for an interview! FABULOUS. Interview was set for Monday. Grandma was scheduled to watch Baby DIVA, I got myself dressed in real clothes and even brushed my teeth. And off I went to my (time out) interview.
The interview went superb. I was tickled. However, they will not be making any decisions until after the first of the year. BLAH!!! Either that is a nice blow off or I will be excited again come January. Time will tell.
So that is how I spent my time out. It was lovely. I jammed out to music in the car that I wanted to listen to. I drove slow and enjoyed my time alone and worked at making myself a better person by gaining more experience from interviewing. More knowledge to pass on to Baby DIVA some day!
So what did you do with your Mommy Time Out?
