The last week and half has been hectic, dealing with the new pups and everything that goes along with that. During that time, I stopped putting myself first and went back to old habits - eating crappy food, not sleeping enough, not taking the time to put on makeup, etc.
So, I'm trying to find a balance. How do I deal with taking care of others but still make sure to take care of myself and the things I need to do, like go grocery shopping and doing my laundry?
To make matters worse, my grandfather had a heart attack yesterday. Even though my mom said everything was fine and not to panic, I still ran out of work the moment I heard and went to the hospital. Two hours off my paycheck isn't much, but I could definitely use that money. Plus, I'm sure the dinner at the hospital cafeteria wasn't the best for me, and the Pop Tarts I scarfed for lunch weren't exactly diet friendly.
Point is, I need to figure out how to balance my own needs with the needs of others. I know that I should be the top priority in my life, but I always put it at the bottom of the list when things get stressful.
