The last 7 days have not been kind to me. Last week my daughter had some issues at school. Nothing life shattering. But still took several phone calls to get to the bottom of and robbed me of three night's sleep.
Next my son hurt is knee in soccer. Couldn't walk all weekend. Took him to an Orthopaedic doctor yesterday to find out that he has a bone bruise. Hooray: No surgeries or permanent damage. Boo: He will miss soccer tournament and the end of the lacrosse season. Crutches at school are a pain and healing time is lengthy.
Add to that a husband with a crazy work schedule, which means nearly everything falls to me.
Another stress: We are in the process of switching all the kid's bedrooms around. My upstairs is a disaster and needs some major re-organizing.
While I am at it, I might add, I didn't sleep at all last night because of all these crazy noises that kept waking me up. Mystery solved in the morning: acorns falling off the tree onto our roof and front porch. But trust me, at 2am it sounds like some one breaking into your house to steal your precious children.
Next: Haven't showered in 3 days. I wish I was kidding.
My body is so very tired physically and emotionally.
I am running a half marathon on Saturday.
Pity party over. Thank you for coming.
When upon life's billows:
I have such wonderful kids and we had the very best birthday celebration for my oldest this weekend. She loved every bit of it.
My husband works so hard for our family and really pulls his weight when he is home. Not to mention being such an amazing dad.
I have lost about 4 lbs training for my half marathon. My tapering training schedule is really easy this week. 2 miles, 3 miles, 2 miles.
We had really yummy tortilla soup for dinner last night. With avocado. Thanks T.
Our basement is nearly done. We finish with the carpet today and everything looks fantastic.
When I really look at it, I wonder how I am so lucky to have such a wonderful life.
I feel Gratitude. Humility. Grace.
