Ugh, what a week!

I haven't been blogging that much lately. My youngest daughter got the flu the other night and it's been a few days of one sick little girl! :(  Any time one of my children gets the flu/vomits I feel SO bad!! That's the worst thing to have to watch your little one dry heaving with that scared to death look in their eyes. My youngest is a trooper when it comes to being sick compared to my oldest. She will whine and cry all night because she hates even the thought of throwing up. So I felt lucky in that respect that it was only the little one that got sick. Watch, now that I've said that the school will give me a call letting me know my other one is sick too! It would be just my luck!

So, other than that I have been also having some major mommy guilt issues going on involving time spent on computer. Lately, I've trying to join as many blog hops as I can to up my followers and also trying to blog as much as I can to bulk up the quality of my content. With that being said, it's so hard to find time to do it! Especially with it being March break this past week and my daughter wasn't in school, I felt so bad to be sucked in to the computer. There was more than one day that I closed the laptop and didn't even touch it.  Is it normal to feel so guilty for having something of my own that I want to accomplish? I'm sure it is. Also, should I feel bad for taking time for myself. I know I could be blogging at night when they're asleep but that's the time that I usually want to spent with my hunnie so that idea gets thrown out the window. And then there's night shift, which he's on right now. So I could find time to blog then, right? Wrong! Night shift is when I want to get all my major spring cleaning done and by that I mean painting! I've put a fresh coat on the kitchen and primed my hallway which I plan on putting colour on as soon as little sister is 100%. 
The only conclusion I can think of is that it's one of the joy's of motherhood - feeling guilty or bad about something you're doing all the time! :P

As if that wasn't enough that I was worried about, I've been on this getting in shape kick. So also finding the time to get in a workout is trying as well. And I mean, there's no way in heck I'm getting up before the kids at 6 am like some crazy women I know! But honestly if it came down to it, I think I totally would if I was dedicated enough.

I hope you all had an awesome Spring/March break with lots of extra time spent with the fam :)
