DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 02 October 2018

Have you ever had a floating meeting? I've had that thing where the cable guy says I will be there between 8 am and 8 pm but I've never had a work meeting like that. Yesterday I had my first and last floating meeting. The 12:30 meeting that I skipped the gym for didn't happen until 3pm. Lesson? Don't let anything interfere with the time that I set aside for myself. It's ok to say no. It's ok to put myself first. I deserve to be treated well by myself. And the next time someone says they want to plan a meeting between the hours of and don't send a meeting invite... I'm throwing my stress cow at their head. yes my stress ball is shaped like a cow. He's wearing a business suit and briefcase so it's um... office is. The chicken standing next to him in muck boots not so much.

Today I had a meeting that went a little long but I'm heading to the gym as soon as I finish this. I don't want to go to the gym but I deserve to be taken care of by myself. Even on days when I don't want me to take me to the gym I need to let me do it because it's part of taking care of me. Yes I'm totally developing another personality as I write this. I can't count on or expect anyone else in my life to take care of me right now. And you know what? We should take care of ourselves. Take that to mean whatever that means to you. To me it means dragging my out of shape butt to the gym if I want to or not and buying new shoes this afternoon because my heels are looking rough and I deserve nice shoes.

Don't take any of this as me thinking I'm all that or I deserve it all. I have kids and a farm and a job. Everything always seems to come before me. The kids get brand new shoes a couple times a year. My heels are 9 years old. The shirt I'm wearing.. maternity. My babies are 4 and 6. Seriously though.. maternity clothes are the most comfortable things ever made. If I could get away with stretch waist pants still I would. Only then... they would assume I'm pregnant again. That's not happening. I may need a closet intervention. I have jeans that are close to 20 years old. Granted.. they don't fit and may never fit but I'm keeping those jeans.

Ok.. I've procrastinated enough. I'm off to the gym and I'm avoiding the floating meeting guy.

You can only take care of others when you first take care of yourself.

What is worse a 'floating meeting' or a 'last minute meeting'? I'm not sure...
