Time is flying by, but the days crawl at a snail’s pace. I have a three year old now and the honeymoon phase of the new baby sister is over. I am exhausted.
I have been struggling with basic jobs of keeping my house clean and having well balanced meals for my family. For every step forward, I am forced to take two steps back. I am tired and frustrated.
I don’t even want to list the ways this week has sucked so far and made me want to go hide in a hole. That’s just life, I guess. I know others have it much worse but to be honest I don’t have the energy to take their sorrows on my shoulders too.
On a positive note, it’s gorgeous outside. The mosquitoes still are bad around my yard, so we haven’t spent much time outside (especially with a newborn and reports of people in my area getting West Nile Virus). But I’ve been trying to take Savannah to parks. Today we had a picnic at a park where we’ve only been once before. We had to leave because the yellow jackets were so bad. (And let’s face it, I’m afraid of getting stung!) The same thing happened last time we went to that park, about a year ago. No wonder it’s usually empty! I guess we won’t go back there.
I can’t believe it’s almost November. I’ll have to share about Christmas plans, since I have a child old enough this year to understand advent! So exciting!
Well I am going to get some things done on the birth center website… Hopefully it won’t be too much time before I blog again. ;-)
