Momma Feels Young

Harry Being a mother is the most difficult job you will ever encounter. You work work work and there is never a break. Most people that look at us do not even think that we work, but we are 24 hours 7 days a week. There are other moms out there that are like me; I do not live close to family. We do not have anyone that takes care of our kids and my husband is a bit on the none-trusting side and we haven’t gotten a sitter ever. So the only break I get is if my DH can give me one and he does from time to time but I still feel that I’m always taking care of them and at the end of the week I feel so old and tired.

Last night, I saw Harry Connick Jr at BlissDom. I’m am not the kind of woman that sees stars or swoons over famous people. It’s just not a big deal, but this was so much fun. Being in a room of my peers, listening and dancing to great music, I felt like I was back in my younger years, (I’m not that old, but I just feel old sometimes) enjoying myself without any worries. I think it was the first time that I was able to not worry about my children at all since they were born. I was completely relaxed. I danced, and stood in line like a teenager waiting to get my photo taken with Harry Connick Jr. I can’t wait to see how the photo came out. The photo above I took with My Cannon EOS, I love my camera, it looks like he was looking right at me and I was so far away. I also had the pleasure of shaking his hand and it made me feel special even though he was shaking hands with everyone he took a photo with. All of these things made me feel young, it was wonderful and I have to thank all the people that put BlissDom together. THANK YOU!

    I can remember going to a lot of concerts and, wow, how I loved it. Now, I can hardly walk so no one takes me out of the house much. Talking about feeling old.
    I can’t believe you have never had a sitter. You may be the only person who has been able to do that.
    I am so glad you are having a great time. Sounds like you deserve it.

    It’s easy enough to feel old, especially when we’ve got so many things to do. Am super glad that you had a fab night :) Harry Connick rocks!

    Found you at MBC commenters. Interesting blog! :)

    Just found your blog and I love it. Sounds like you deserved the break. Glad you enjoyed yourself and that’s awesome that you got to see Harry Connick Jr. perform and you got your picture taken with him. By the way if you ever catch him on Ellen, he’s hilarious. That is a great shot too, I’m in the market for a new camera and I rarely hear people say they love theirs. Can I ask what kind it is?
