Too many changes, not enough coffee...

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

And here we are....FALL. No blogging done during the last year.

I feel awful about it.

There is not enough coffee in the world to make me feel better about it.

There is also not enough coffee to solve my issues that have kept me from blogging.

As my friend Kelli said recently,

"If those of us who struggle, as much as I struggle, are ashamed of it, we're never going to get anywhere". 

And the thing is, I am tired.

Tired of struggling, tired of feeling like I am failing, feeling alone, and overwhelmed.

and I'm guessing you are too. So many of us are. Don't get me wrong, I have great people in my life who love me well, but I think its the nature of our society today to be stressed out.
Do more. BE MORE. All the freaking time. And when we fall, getting back up is harder and harder.

So how do we stop?

I am still not a morning person.

Are you surprised?

Me either.

Mornings aren't magical.

I am not a morning person.

There I said it.

My husband will agree 100%. It is the entire reason that he is the coffee fairy.

Yes loves, you are understanding me correctly. He makes the coffee and brings it to me in bed to wake me up.

Cause without it, I am kinda (really) grouchy. I am fully aware of just how spoiled I am by this.

As you can imagine, this also means that getting the small people out the door for school is a battle for me. The two hardest parts for me are packing lunches and breakfast. There never seems to be enough time, especially when trying to make healthier choices. I've come up with a few solutions that I have found help us, and I hope will help you too.

Back to School!!

It's my favorite time of year!


You might think that as a stay-at home mama, I would dread them being gone.
This is when I get to work. 
My ability to volunteer, blog, support my friends, get involved in community events, and love my neighbors well, all seems to work best for me while the kids are actually in school. It sets up a good routine for us. There is a rhythm to our life that we lose somewhere between June and August.

Its been a while...

So many things have happened, some have gone right and many have gone wrong, and everything changed.

I've changed.

And definitely not in the ways that I thought I would. I took a look back at my blog posts and realized that some of those same demons that I have fought in my past, still define me. New ones have also crept in.
I have been living in a hard reality.

For the last year, I have let grief define me. It came in multiple forms, and under many circumstances, but I'm finally dealing with it.

I'm finally beginning to heal.

I can see the beauty in the storm.
