|Both kiddos wanted to sit on top of me and pretend that I’m a camel. 😉|
Life here is…well, busy. And that too is an understatement. There never seems to be enough time in the day. So many tasks that are on my to-do list, which seems to just grow more and more daily with things not actually getting crossed off. It’s overwhelming, tiring, exhausting, and about 100 other words just like those. It’s like I’m in a pit in the ground, and every time I climb up and I think I can see the surface and the light, somebody throws more dirt in and I fall back to the ground. It’s like I cannot catch a break. Someone or something always needs my attention and unfortunately, there is only so much of me to go around. I’m also still trying to stay on top of my shop which also requires a lot of me, and I know you’re wondering why I don’t just take a break and hit the pause button, but it’s truly because painting and things like blogging is what keeps my mind going. Keeps my brain working so I don’t drown in diapers, runny noses, baby food, endless amount of laundry, and Disney Jr.
My friend texted this to me the other day and I just wanted to scream “YASSSSSSSSS…this speaks to my soul!!”
I’m well aware that this is just the season of life and one day I will look back and long for the messes my kiddos are making. Everything in my house is unorganized and thrown all around. I could clean it in the morning and it would look like three hurricanes would have swept through my downstairs by the time it came to put the kids to bed… on a good day. Nonetheless, I survive on lots of coffee and try to eat what I can when one of my babies doesn’t need me, which of course is practically never unless they both miraculously sleep at the same time at nap (like today) or after they go to bed.
Anyhow, this a very BRIEF description of why you haven’t heard from me or seen me in a while. If you’re a friend and you’re wondering why I haven’t texted you back, it’s because of this…
Couldn’t have spoken more true my friends. One day, when my life is in order again, I will text you RIGHT BACK. Right now, it’s just a pipe dream. Anyhow, enough of my rant and I’m going to drink my coffee from this morning that I think I’ve re-heated about 4 times before one of my babies wake up screaming in the next 8 minutes probably. But I’ll leave you with these gems that have made up for hard few months I’ve had, cuz it’s the moments below that have made my life amazing and meaningful, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Not even for a second.
