last week was a hard week. i found myself sad and unable to cope with life just about every day. i don't really know what it was. i think it was a combo of a million different things. theft in our neighborhood making me thing about missing items in our house (by someone we trusted?), being overwhelmed by the size and complexity of our house, my housekeepers suck, my best florida friend moved, aidan is a perfectly normal and sometimes unpredictable 2yo and anna is a perfectly normal 4mo wanting me to hold her every second, hormones trying to find balance in my body?
i have wonderful things in my life. my husband (who does laundry, dishes, hugs, kisses and unconditional support) my beautiful and entertaining kids, the ability to stay home with my kids and live in a beautiful home. still, every day last week i wanted to curl up and hide by the end of the day.
i'm making a conscious effort to change this week. i don't need another week like that. adam came home early today and despite aidan crunching cheerios from one end of the house to another i was able to keep it together before then. i read a couple of other blogs where it seemed that last week was a blue one all around so maybe it was just meant to be. let's hope.
this was a scattered ramble, but in an effort to get good rest tonight to set the weekly alignment straight, i am going to sleep instead of trying to fix it.
