In a funk
There has been a lot going on around here lately. None of it too great, although I try to see the good every day. It has been hard to see lately. Family issues, money issues, kids acting up, little sleep because kids are now "learning" to share a room, summertime which means Moo is home 24/7 and is old enough to know that there is cool stuff to do out there but we are not doing it! Ugh. The Hubby's job keeps him busy - always busy, which means that I do a lot of this stuff - all stuff - alone. Recently, probably because of all the things mentioned above, it has been really hard for me to do it alone. Some days I just want to crawl into a hole and let the dishes go unwashed, the laundry go undone and let the kids have a death match over the remote or doll or book or whatever it is they are fighting about right now. But I don't. I do what I'm supposed to do and remember that this too shall pass. Soon enough Moo will be back in school and I will miss having her right next to me ALL DAY. Toots will get used to sleeping in the new "girls room" and not cry out for me every two hours through the night. Bills will get paid, things will get done. It is not the end of the world even though it feels like it some days. And I am not a martyr. I take care of the house and the kids and the yard and the bills and the family stuff and everything else, but I am not the only one doing these things. Even though it feels like that too sometimes. And in just a little while, I'll be bringing home Gnomeo and Juliet (our new rabbits) and beginning a new adventure. If you want to learn more about it, check out my other blog Cold Hands Farm where I post about all things rabbit. So I do have that to look forward to. This funk will go away. It too shall pass.
