The sun did shine for a bit on Sunday afternoon. I'm looking forward to its return.
It's been a crazy week. Everything seems to be moving at a hectic pace, and I am simply unable to keep up. Work is incredibly stressful at the moment, and as I've mentioned, my house is a complete disaster. I have no kitchen, and as the walls come down, of course surprises are found and decisions must be made. We're using a lot of paper plates (my apologies to Mother Earth), and I'm washing our real dishes in the upstairs bathroom sink.
The kids are great, but they are 2 and 5; so while they're completely awesome, they still require a great deal of my energy. I find myself rushing around all day, tending to whatever I can, and at the end of the day, I fret about all the items I neglected to get done. Oh, and the rain! Have I mentioned the rain? May sunshine came in April, so I guess we're catching up on the April rains now.
Instead of thinking of all the things I didn't get done, I know I should focus on all I did get done. The fact that my bed is made and that we all have clean clothes is an accomplishment! I did get that door order in (a day late, but still...), and I even took 20 minutes to exercise yesterday. (I'm sore today, which is pitiful.) So far I've even managed to come up with dinners without a kitchen. Work goes on, and I do what I can. That's a lot.
While I'm doing my best to keep up the juggle, I will look forward to:
- sunny days
- more lilacs on my dining room table
- fast progress on the house
- starting the countdown at work (end of July!)
- celebrations with family and friends
- my little boy's 3rd birthday (!)
- stolen quiet moments
- Sangria Saturdays
