Thank you all for your responses to my last post. It helps to get outside perspectives. Moving forward I am going to work harder to determine what I need and make sure I’m getting it, even it that means my husband is more tired or my kids are crying because they want mommy, not daddy, in the morning. It’s going to be hard to make some of these changes, but it’s important enough to at least try.
I have a lot of heavy posts in my draft folder, but now doesn’t seem like the time to post them. Perhaps after the holidays. In the meantime I’ll just say I’m in a weird headspace. It’s probably related to my period. I hate short cycles and hormones.
Yesterday the kids and I were stuck inside while a storm raged. I decided to get out two of their Christmas presents and let them open them early; it’s one of the benefits of being and adult, right? That you can fudge the rules?
So we opened them and the kids had a great time playing lava monster and fairys-in-the-river with their new steppings stones.
I hope you all have a happy holidays, whatever it is you celebrate.
