A friend came up to me earlier tonight and told me how much she enjoyed reading my blog. And that if she was every having a bad day she would click over to see if I had anything up because she enjoyed my writing and the humor. She doesn’t have kids the same age as mine, but she said as a mother she still relates to all the emotions, trials, and circumstances that I have written about. She is the…. I’ve lost count (I’m not a math person), but I have had so many people mention my blog to me in the last couple of months. And the truth is…. I’m just stuck. I’m a slacker in limbo and most days I am just happy to have on matching shoes… heck, I’m just happy to have on shoes period. Unless I just took them off and that’s different. Anyway…..
I’ve started multiple blog pieces over the last several months and they all still sit in draft form. Thoughts and time both escape me. I can’t seem to gather either of them long enough to complete much of anything these days. You may have seen the Facebook video floating around of why the mom can’t get anything done all day and it’s because she goes from one room to the next and each time she does she sees something else that needs to be done and starts in on that and never actually finishes anything by the time her husband comes home. They wrote that about me. 🙋🏼♀️ My husband has even started calling me “ADD.” Romantical, right? I like to think of it as a term of endearment rather than a label, I mean, he’s never been specific so in all honesty it’s most likely a pet name for something like “Amber’s Definitely Dynamite.” Makes sense.
Tonight though, this friend inspired me to come home and get some thoughts in order and say hello to everyone. I’m so behind I don’t really know where to begin. We’ve done so much in the last several months and I’ve left y’all out in the cold so I have a lot of catching up to do. We had a wonderful Disney trip that we surprised the kids with! We’ve done so many home projects that writing about them just totally overwhelms me, but I will try to put forth something worthy and entertaining soon. 😉
The kids are still chugging along at school and loving it all except the waking up part (I feel). I think of myself as a pro school mom now. I’ve gone from dead dog dying, crying constantly, not eating, & volunteering at school every other day to “see ya wouldn’t want to be ya” & pushing them out of the car at drop off so they’re not tardy. 💁🏼♀️ So you could say I’ve adjusted. 😂 I still miss them, and love our snow days together but I have learned to love and appreciate the school routine also.
I hope all of my readers are doing well! I’d love to hear from you guys. I’ll get something else going very soon and try not be so “Dynamite.” It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it. 😘
P.S. Thanks for the inspiration, friend, you know who you are.
