Ok. I love blogging, I really do. But since children, the blog life has had it’s air sucked right out of it. I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed and overtired recently because of one certain little girl. This little girl, with fiery red hair and the spirit of a mustang, keeps me run off my feet. She’s almost 3, but it hasn’t stopped since she was 8 months of age. Dennis the menace comes to mind….
I don’t want to complain. Because I’d never trade her. Not for saving me from all the microwaved metal tins that set on fire, not for the many times she spilled entire containers of Parmesan cheese on the carpet, on the couch, not for all the times she wouldn’t go to bed, not for all the screaming she does while we grocery shop, not for that time she called 911.
But I needed a little break and last night I went out with two of my favourite ladies. We didn’t do much but sit in a coffee shop and chat and wander through a few stores. Dear Yankee candle, what were you thinking of when you made a candle that smelled like bacon? We laughed. I tried on a few new age clothing items, and we laughed some more. I needed that so much.
This is also the 3rd day the firecracker has napped, she never naps. It’s like the universe is giving me exactly what I need. So I feel a little more like myself. It’s good to know I’m still in there somewhere and I’m so thankful to have a glimpse of this feeling.
Today I sent my husband a message telling him that today I found time and head space to be weird. And it feels really good.
So here it is. A series I’d like to call Last Minute Halloween Costumes:
Kicking off the 1st of OCTOBER with a little Halloween and a little ZZ Top:
