Sometimes life can be a bit overwhelming.
You know like when you’ve just come back from a whirlwind trip to visit family and friends, back in the town where you used to live that you still miss and you drive by your old house and can see the light beaming through the front door and realize it’s no longer YOUR lamp creating that light but your okay with the fact that you don’t have to deal with that tree in the front yard that was always losing limbs but you still kinda wish it was your house and not theirs.
You know, like that.
Oh AND, you’re sick when you get back.
Sick AND tired.
But you have a wonderful husband who lets you sleep while he does ALL the laundry and takes care of the kids and vacuums out your car and goes to the grocery store to get your favorite soup.
And even though the much anticipated trip is over and life resumes to normal (and you MUST clean your house this week and take the oldest child to his first soccer practices) you’re just not “feelin’ it.”
But that doesn’t matter because it’s time to “suck it up” and be Mommy again and take care of the kiddos and dishes and cleaning and laundry (oh wait, that’s DONE!) and to remember that this is the life you always wanted and are so thankful to have even though some days are rough.
We all feel overwhelmed at times. I know. You know. We ALL know.
Somtimes it’s good for me to sit and look at all the pictures I take to calm me and remind me that my life is pretty great.
I can look at a picture that my husband took and feel better. This is one of those times.
I’m linking up to Krystyn’s Mommy and Me Monday since I finally got a picture of ME with my girl that I didn’t take myself!
