Falling off the face of the universe


It has been over a week since I have written in my blog.  I have lost my “oomph” sort to speak.

I get like that sometimes, I don’t know if you do?  I have a week where I say.  “YEAH! this is my week, I am waking up and getting IT done!  I am going to ….” this is the “week of ME” kind of deal.  It works out great.  It really does.  Then I kind of find myself falling flat on my face for an entire week.  I have burnt out all cylinders.

I had elaborate plans for getting Loveliness ready for kindergarten.  It was awesome.  I found some websites to print exercises from.  We matched objects to their shadows, and we made a lap book.  It was a lot of fun.  Then came the “mood buster”.  The “I don’t LOVE you” mood buster.  That’s just great!  thanks I needed to hear that.  Every aspect of my day is devoted to my children and I live, live, live for them and their well being and education.  I really did not need to hear that.  I really didn’t need to hear it repeated several times that afternoon and evening either.  “I don’t LOVE you, I love Daddy.  I hate you, your garbage, your blaaachh”

I know, I know, I KNOW she is 3.  It still hurts. 

now combine this mood buster, with some very powerful hormones, and a touch of exhaustion, sprinkle some depression and loneliness, (the loneliness is a key ingredient!) and you have one very explosive situation waiting to happen.

and it did.

for 3 days.

on the couch, a tired, crying sack of sad.

I am starting to feel a bit better, after getting a touching text message from my husband the other day.  It almost brought me to tears.  It helped me get over some of this funk.   I have started doing old projects again like the fabric book I started for the girls over a year ago.  I pulled out the sewing machine and started sewing a few pages.  It is great practice for the quilt I plan on making.  Once I have a few more pages I will post it on the site.

for now, I will just make sure I take my vitamins (oh oh… forgot) and take things a little slower.  Also listening to my beautiful husband sing “chin up, cheer up” by Ryan Adams makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside (I love you dear) ♥
