What a whirlwind these past two weeks have been. Between planning and prepping for a youth rally this fall, preparing and hosting my Stampin' Up! club, going on a ladies retreat, preparing material and teaching Bible class, traveling, and on and on and on... I haven't stopped.
Until yesterday. And then I just stopped... I slept in and stayed in bed watching tv past that. My house was a disaster. I had been washing the dishes regularly, but my sink was never emptied. I had been washing the clothes, but the lack of folding led to a literal mountain of them on my couch (Hunter, bless his heart, had to dig for his work clothes every morning...). I have a little walking path to my bed because everything has just been laid somewhere.
Hunter and I haven't even had time to just sit and visit. Every conversation we've had is about some task and what the other needs to take care of; making travel arrangements or bill payments; asking one another to do something for the kiddo... No rest.
Thankfully, I'm starting to catch my breath and wrangle my life back to a state of normalcy (somewhat...). Little by little the house is getting picked up and cleaned, and slowly but surely we're sneaking in small conversations about non-pressing matters.
This is kind of a pointless post to a reader (if anyone out there even reads this...); but it's my outlet and venting board. So I feel better even just expressing my need for a slowed pace...at least for a few days.
which is good, because that's all I'm gonna get off... in a few weeks, the crazy picks right back up where it left off!
But at least I have an incredible partner and adorable baby along for the ride...
Enjoy your life--even the busy-ness of it all. Just don't get lost in it.
