Stream of Conscienceness

I don’t feel guilty.

I don’t feel guilty for not getting up.

I don’t feel guilty for making him get up.

I don’t feel guilty for laying in bed a little extra longer.

I don’t feel guilty for making him deal with the kids.

I don’t feel guilty for rolling over and catching a few more winks.

I don’t feel guilty for being off duty.

I don’t feel guilty.

Well maybe just a little.

  1. Hi from your latest follower. Just calling by from Sunday Blog hops. Love your post. Be sure to check out me out at Sarah

  2. Ha ha! How come women carry the burden of guilt in the household? A man wouldn't bat an eyelid at doing nothing all day.

    I write this looking over at my husband who is dozing on the sofa and has been for two hours :-/

    Don't worry about the breakfasts, dog walking, ironing sweetheart, you just relaaaax…!

  3. Clare Priest, soooo true. And Steph, this SOC captures that feeling so perfectly.

  4. I need to start telling myself that over, and over until I can make it be true! πŸ™‚

  5. O that's great! I love this!!

    We all need a day once in a while where we don't feel guilty for not doing it all perfectly every time!

  6. Love this post! And, I can so relate. It seems there's always that bit of guilt that creeps out when taking a much needed break and making my husband do the things I do on a daily basis, but I try my best to ignore it. πŸ™‚

  7. Your blog is gorgeous! (SOC Sunday led me over.)
    Also, guilt sucks. At least you can let some of it go!

  8. Hey! I'm now a follower from the Sunday Blog Hop! Would love a follow back πŸ™‚

  9. It is a mother's curse to feel guilty even when we shouldn't:) Thanks for linking up to the NOBH.

  10. So glad to have found your blog from Monday Madness Blog Hop. I know how you feel. My husband used to take the kids every Saturday morning to his mom's and then they would go out for doughnuts. But I still felt guilty. It's hard to let go sometimes.

    Following you now on GFC – hope you have a wonderful 'cool' week LOL

  11. I can so relate! When I was working only in the evenings and my boyfriend woke up early to go to work, he used to get SO angry with me for staying in bed a little longer. Now that the tables have turned and he is the one unemployed and I'm getting up in the morning for work, he doesn't think anything at all of rolling back over for a few extra winks!

  12. I live in a state of guilt (or at least I did). Now that my son is 4 and isn't as helpless, it feels okay to be a little lazy.
