Burning the Midnight Oil...

Sitting up with a teething baby tonight. The perfect poetic ending to a really hard mommy day. Poor Sweet Pea.

I got the hug I needed...

Even at 32 I still need a good momma hug now and again. Thanks Mom.

I'm in a bad place today

I don't know what else to say to round this out other than, I'm really struggling. I'm angry about I few situations in my life. I feel helpless in a few other situations and I feel overwhelmed by having to be... well me.

I'm tired of feeling overwhelmed. I'm tired of worrying about things that are not mine. I am tired of feeling like I need to apologize for being me. I'm tired of feeling like I can't have a hard day because I am lucky to be in the place that I am. And most of all I am just tired of always being exhausted.

I give everything I have to those around me and sometimes I want to just need to be cared for too. I'm grateful my husband gave to me this weekend. I am truly running on empty and he helped me gain enough reserve to make it through today at naptime.

I need a hug.

A long August...

So, August took forever to pass for me with no kids in school and all of our normal activities on hiatus. It was a great vacation from life, but I am a routine person and we had nothing but wackiness in our routine for last month. We loved the pajama mornings and the late bed times, but I was definitely ready to usher in the new school year.

Boo started school yesterday and my Baby J started school today. She woke up at 4 AM so excited to go to school. Now 4 AM sounds extreme, but this early riser is usually up before 5:30 and the sun, so in reality she only woke up an hour early.

Next week I start back with MOPS...thank God. I so miss my mommy friends!!! And with MOPS comes Mother's day out as well!!! YIPPEE!!!
