One thing is certain: 2013 sure isn’t starting out slow.
Its January 23rd. So far this month:
I have had one person move out of my home, and another move in.
We have traveled 200 miles to a memorial service for Grandpa Howern.
I started a math and Spanish class two evenings a week.
I have worked more hours than usual with some night shifts, which has thrown off my schedule.
Our dryer motor died. Had to replace it.
My cell phone broke.
My camera broke.
I’m mentally exhausted. Stressed to my max to keep things running smooth for my kids. Juggling many hats, mom, nurse, coworker, sister, friend, housekeeper, scheduler, accountant,…Wonder Woman needs a break.
But I will inhale. And exhale.
I love my kids. My husband is very supportive. I have a good friend I can rely on.
Life goes on.
And I will love it.
I’m glad to be alive. I’m glad to be needed.
my silly kiddos
