“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
― Gautama Buddha
It’s been a rough last week. For the last 6 days, I’ve been dealing with quite a few insane situations here on the home front that have left me with very little time for myself or anything that has to do with the internet, my blog or reading all of yours.
I’m usually really good at keeping up. Reading my blogs, taking the time to comment, pin and share, connecting with my blogging community is something I love to do. I can usually take 30 minutes everyday, have a cup of tea or coffee and just relax. This is what makes me stop and think these days, what makes me think of me.
For the last 6 days, there was very little “me”. First there was mom going to the emergency 3 days in a row with a Little Man that was sick as can be. Then, there was mom nursing him back to health. Then there was mom finding a new preschool for a little Miss that just wasn’t feeling at home in her current one. Later there was mom finding an electrician last-minute to figure out why the lights in the bathroom suddenly won’t come on (the joys of owning an almost centennial home). There was errand-mom, cleaning-mom, yard-work mom and “sleep-is-for-the-weak-next-week-mom”… **
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being a mom. I would not change any of it for the whole world. But needless to say, my blog subscriptions have erupted in a Mount Vesuvius of activity and I’m finding myself getting buried by the ashes.
So I apologize to all you amazing writers if I seem uninterested or absent. I may just have to start fresh and press the reset button. Starting fresh tomorrow seems like the only viable option because I would be playing catch up for days.
I hope your week is starting off wonderfully, things here are finally calming down. I look forward to reconnecting with all of you and reading about your journeys.
Have a peaceful evening.
** I just wanted to make sure I mentioned that for every errand, effort, sleepless night, hectic day, my wonderful hubby was right at my side. He is my greatest source of strength when times get harder.
