Please know that I am not complaining right now. I love being a mom. I love my life. I am blessed beyond what I ever could have hoped for. But some days and some weeks are hard. And I want to record the hard days right along with the wonderful days because it makes me appreciate the wonderful days that much more. Like I said, being a mom is tough. And you can't really understand how much work it truly is until you become one. I feel tired and pulled in so many directions every single day. And since I'm being so open right now, can I just be honest and say that because of my current schedule I am having a really hard time blogging. In fact, I have considered taking a break. Putting my blog "on hold" for a bit. But every time I think I'm going to really do it I feel sad. I love blogging so much and I know that the second I stop I will miss it and I will miss all of you so much. Last week I got several e-mails from a few of you. Random thank yous from readers saying they enjoy my blog. The e-mails all made me cry. Big tears just rolled down my cheeks. They came at such a perfect time and reminded me of how much I love this blog and connecting with all of you. So thank you. Thanks to those of you who wrote last week and to all of you who have written or left a sweet comment in the past. Your kind words mean so much to me. And I am not taking a blog break. :) At least not right now anyway. But I am sending out a disclaimer that I might not be posting as often and my posts will most likely be LAME for a while. Until things slow down. And maybe they never will. But they better! They will.
Kenny is home this week (hallelujah!) and I spent a lot of time today getting on top of the house work so that next week will feel better. I whipped out this little list over the weekend:
My girls were really good to pitch in and help. They knew I meant business!
I also had them lay out their clothes for the week.
There have been several weeks that I haven't done our little weekly outfit system because I forgot or I was just lazy and I always regret it! Mornings run so much smoother when we have outfits organized and ready to go.
And last but not least (for this ridiculously random post) -
I woke up to this Saturday morning. Can I just say that I KNEW as soon as I came up with my "no stuffed animals on the kitchen table" rule Ellie would figure out another place for her pandas to eat!
Feathers the owl even won a place at the table. Lucky little thing.
That girl makes me laugh.
That girl makes me laugh.
Enjoy your Monday everyone!
And thanks for always making me feel like this blog is a safe place to vent. :)
