Wellness Wednesday 11: Weekend Well Spent

Welcome to Wellness Wednesday, lovelies!

I have big news to share with all of you. I will start a new job starting Monday. Yes, I am returning to the corporate world and I am excited about this job. Where will it be? Here in Jakarta. I will not talk too much about the details on here.

So that is the main reason why I have been absolutely crazy busy lately. Life is changing for me. A new path has open up for me and my son and for that I am so grateful. Thank you Universe, thank you God. Everything is starting to fall into place after a few rough times before, I am eager to start this new chapter of my life.

Therefore, I shall go with prompt number 3…

Weekend Well Spent

A weekend well spent

Since I will be going back to working full time, I think I have some ideas of how I will be spending weekends with my boy from now on. It will be our precious times to spend together, either alone or with friends from Single Moms Indonesia.

My boy is 8 years old and he still asks if he could sleep in my bed, my response has always been “Only on weekends.

I think I will savors those weekends where I might get accidentally hit in the head with his long arms. Where he will throw his arms around me…


My heart is heavy can’t you tell?

I will miss him terribly but we need this. Most importantly, I need this for my soul! For my sense of self.

We may go to see movies or hang out with friends, watching my son interacts with other children always warms my heart. He needed that opportunities to play with other kids his age oh, so much.

My idea of a weekend well spent will be whatever my little man and I could do together! What’s yours?

    Congrats! A new job is a huge deal.
    My daughter is five and still occasionally crawls into bed with us. I initially wondered about putting an end to it but my husband said, “Don’t. One day we will miss this so much.”
    He’s so right. It makes me happy when it happens – about once every week or two.
