The alternate title to this post should be ‘I Just Want To Hang Out With My Friends’. Because I do. I just want to hang out with my girlfriends once a month and eat girly snacks while
gossiping catching up. Bunco is the perfect cover for that. I suggest if you have never played you just go to a Bunco Night. Shoot, come to MY Bunco Night! It is the easiest game ever. Three dice and you don’t even have to keep your own score. And besides the nights I make Husbando fill in, its ladies only time. We laugh, we tease, we eat, we drink and we are usually very merry. Couldn’t you use a night with the girls?
During our adoption class they stressed self-care. I use the term as an excuse to get a massage whenever I want but really the basis for the curriculum is to help in a bigger way because so many parents (adoptive, foster, biological, single) forget to take care of themselves. If you don’t take care of yourself then you are not being the best you can be for the kids. You mean ‘if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy’ is a real thing? Oh thank you DHS!
So even if you’re not adopting or fostering or even a parent, remember that taking care of yourself as a whole will make you a happier person. When you’re happy, you can do better in all parts of your life. Marriages, work, parenting, everything. So go to Bunco. Or get a massage. Or hike Kilimanjaro. Whatever makes you happy, try to do it.
Did I mention the prizes?
