It’s been busy around here. Birthdays, Easter, appointments, spring break, more birthdays, more appointments. We even managed to have an outdoor party and get our first doses of the vaccine.
When I think about the last few weeks, it’s kind of a blur.
I remember thinking I didn’t want to be in charge of all of the healthcare appointments for all of the kids. Dreading how many orthodontist appointments I will be going to and what a big commitment it is. (Notice a theme here?)
I went to craft night at my mom’s last night and instead of crafting talked to my mom and step-dad for a couple of hours. When I got up from my chair to put my empty teacup in the dishwasher, I couldn’t believe that it was after 10:00.
Tonight is bath night, which I am usually in charge of, and also my night to put the kids to bed. Because I’m tired, I was thinking about how much work all of that is.
But what happened tonight is not that story I had in my head about how tired I am and how all the things I have to do will make me even more tired.
My two oldest want to take quick showers after dinner and my husband finished work in time to bathe our youngest. So bath time will be easy.
That gave me the time to reflect and to write you.
I stayed up late last night, the last few weeks are catching up to me, and it is affecting what I’m telling myself today. And that’s ok. I didn’t ask for help tonight, but I could have.
I’m glad I had this time to reflect, so I can get out of that story about all the work I have to do.
