I haven’t blogged because I’ve been feeling lost. Like, I suddenly forgot how to be the mom. The 2,384 days of rain sucked the creativity out of me and I still haven’t recovered. And I spend way too much on groceries because I just. can’t. think.
I’ve been reading Jen Hatmaker’s Out of the Spin Cycle: How to Lighten Your Mother Load which is AWESOME. But convicting too. Like shouldn’t I be running a soup kitchen? I feel like laying face-down on the floor crying a lot as it is, and I only have one two-year-old. How do you get past that?
I think I need my friends more. I am constantly surrounded by people (granted, usually 9 & under), yet still feel pretty lonely and I am sure I’m not the only one. It’s hard having your soul sister live on the other side of the planet.
Anyway. Today I’m going to scoop about half of the playroom into the donation pile. I need to make space to breathe. It’s too overwhelming to pick up right now, a sure sign there’s too much stuff. So, cranking up the music, coffee, and Storybook Bible today.Filed under Daily Life | Comments (8)
