Okay, I feel better now that I have that off my chest and I am going to attempt to relax. Wish me luck:)

I think that some how I missed the "relaxation" gene. Am I the only one out there who has a hard time relaxing? I see people do it all the time and I just can't do it. I feel like I am always in a rush...in a rush to get somewhere, in a rush to get home, making dinner, cleaning up, playing with Emma, doing laundry, running errands, spending time with Nick, it is like a never ending list. So, I ask myself why can't I just sit down an do nothing? Perfect example...tonight at dinner Nick said, "when we get home I will watch Emma and you go rest." How sweet was that? Except I can't do it!!! Instead I took out the trash, did laundry and tried to pick up some of the mess created by Hurricane Emma. I feel like a slacker if I take anytime for myself. Okay, before you say I need therapy I already know that;) I am just curious if anyone else is in the same boat or is just me??? Is it a missing gene? Was I absent the day they taught relaxation in school? Or is that I am afraid people will think less of me if I take time for myself ?
