I don't think I have blogged more than a couple of times since I went back to work full time 2 years ago. Truth? I lost my desire to write. I know all of you busy moms out there know what I'm talking about. By the end of the day, once you've done homework, loved on your kiddos, made dinner, packed lunches, laid out uniforms, given showers, brushed teeth, said prayers, and tucked everyone in... You. Are. Done. All you wanna do is have a glass of wine, curl up in bed, and try to get at least a few hours of sleep before you get up and do it all over again. AND weekends are spent rushing around to soccer games, parties, grocery stores, cleaning the house, folding mountains of laundry & just trying your best to catch up. Ugh, THE GRIND... the grind is tough, no matter how much you love your job!!! That's reality. I know you all get it. We all do it every day.
Since I'm calling this "The Confessional," there is a bit more to this story. In addition to the grind, I have been battling health issues for some time... again, and again, and again, and again. I have been in and out of the hospital with internal issues that I cannot control. I don't want to bore anyone with details. The long and short of it? My insides just do not like to work right and I have a long road ahead of me in order to get well. I'm one tough chick, but there is only so much one person can take. Okay, so enough about that. No sense in whining over spilled innards er, ummm, milk! ;).
Man, being a grown up is HARD! Hahaha! Like my dear friend Lori says, "When life gives you lemons, make limoncello!"
Being laid up in bed has given me a chance to put things in perspective. I look at my kids and think, "to be 7 again, without a care in the world." They are so innocent, full of life, loving, kind, smart, honest, & fearless. Watching them grow into these amazing DIFFERENT people is what makes it all worth it!
So, what's the moral of the story? I've found my voice again and I feel like blogging! I can't wait to share with you the cool, funny, independent, kind, loving, smart, strong willed, and often insanely frustrating people our kiddos have become. Now that this little confession is out of the way, I can start working on fun stuff!
Next up on the blogging list... Our kiddos turn 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and I do believe our blog needs a bit of a face lift too! ;)
Here's to getting healthy and a fresh start here in Quadville!
