We have this random week off here every year and unless you escape the day to day of local life and head south or somewhere fun, it sort of throws you through a loop.
The stay at home staycation.
Oh and combine that with a family who thrives on structure, a birthday bash or 2, different temperaments, frigid outdoor temps, and life in the every day fast lane. It can get crazy. And I don’t think the cosmos and moon were lined up so well either.
Sometimes we have to just stop amongst the chaos and lie down on a bench and take it all in.
Oh, you thought I was talking about me? I was. But sometimes we have to remember that the kids feel this same out of balance too. Sometimes my imagery might portray a bit more of our happier moments here and rightly so, we LOVE those moments. But life in the fast lane isn’t always that glorious. We struggle. A lot. It’s a learning process that I won’t go into details about–just know that it’s always in my head.
I am just glad I got to catch one of those moments too.
Hopefully this week we can get back to the routine.
