Sacrifices and Such

As mothers and wives we make sacrifices, don’t we ladies? We prepare food to please the household, give up girl time/me time if it means someone else can do something important to them, our tv viewing changes, we give up Eminem for Kids Bop, and we never take the last donut. If you’re like me you don’t really mind because none of those things makes you as happy as does the happiness of your family. But when they’re gone and you find yourself alone for a day or two in the house – You can get wild and have whatever you want! For me this weekend, while Hubs & kids went tubing to give me some time to catch up at work, that meant CHICKEN NACHOS! Mmhm. With lots of spicy pepper, onions, scallions, and cilantro. Not your “family” nachos at all. And ohh yeeeahhh –

I blackened the edges of the chips just a little bit.  Is your mouth watering? Mine was! Too bad my V3 was still going strong and only let me eat a few bites. Barely made a dent in it! Just wait til Mama’s mojito time later. I’ll make up for it then.  😉 What tiny things have you given up that didn’t fit in with family life?

  1. Oh, I’ve given up lots of stuff. Nice clothes, waking up late in the mornings, spas and salons and a lot of ME time. But things like yummy chicken nachos do make it all worth it!

  2. Wow, I could list many! But mostly I would have to say the ability to do things without planning them like a battle! With five children in the house, every outing is an adventure!

    I’m a first time visitor to your blog. Just wanted to say that I enjoy it and will be coming back to read more!
