The Stoner Mom Diaries: a weekly update on all things Stoner Mom.
The Stoner Mom Diaries | new hair
As I talked about in my last diary entry, last week was a childless anomaly for the stoner mom. My girls were gone for several days on a cruise with their dad, David went back to work, and I got to recharge with some much needed silence and time to myself. I thrive off of alone time, it’s truly how I get the most stuff done, how I reset my energy levels and clear my head. After a summer of noise, friends, guests, and activities, I really needed the opportunity to have some quiet hours to myself each day.
As always, I vastly overestimated how much I would be able to accomplish. I did do a lot of what I planned but got nowhere near as much finished work as I was hoping. I was able to get a few important things done though.
One of those important things? Fixing my damn hair! After months and months of growing it out, ignoring it, piling it on top of my head and wishing it would just go away, I finally ponied up the bones to get it done. Sheesh.
The last time you saw me my hair was epically long and testing the bounds of good taste. Now it’s sleek, short, manageable and requires very little attention from me.
Another fun memory from the week, I hosted a friends-only smoke sesh Monday night with a local couple who love to smoke, socialize, and share conversation and food. It is so fun to switch up your smoke routine occasionally, be it location, method, or company, and I really love inviting people over and watching them get really high. It’s kinda one of my favorite things.
As for getting things done, I managed to do a fair amount of organizing in my quiet time. I rearranged the furniture in Lizzy’s room and got the kids spaces cleaned up and organized so nothing can distract them from good sleep and rest in the last couple of days before school starts. I pulled all of their outgrown clothes out and freed up so many hangers I couldn’t stop rejoicing. I also thoroughly organized my bedroom, closet, and master bathroom and I have felt so much better about myself and surroundings since I cleaned and organized things. It’s amazing how much a difference a non-cluttered environment can do for ones mental health.
Creating content was another big thing on my to-do list and I feel pretty good about the amount of work I was able to put into future posts. I’m really working on that backlog and trying to get as many articles and pieces of content finished up and scheduled so I can spend the next couple weeks auditing the site. I also filmed quite a bit and will be filming more during the days once school starts back up.
Over all it was productive week but mostly it was peaceful and exactly what I needed. Adult time has now wrapped up and it’s back to normal mom programming. Tonight is Back to School Night, and then it’s back to quiet mornings to work and then afternoons/evenings devoted to the kids and family. Structure, routine, schedules, all the things I love.
