The kids are feeling it too. Sam had a minor meltdown about going to school this morning, but it just didn't work for him to stay home today. Rachel had four minor meltdowns this morning too, but since she's turned three, that's not unusual. (Sidenote: Age three is going to be my undoing. I vaguely remember feeling like this with Sam too, so thankfully, I think the worst of it gets erased from our memories.)
It doesn't help that I've been fighting a cold for the past week. Yuck. Why does sickness always hit at the Worst. Time. Possible? I couldn't even go to my ballet class last week, so I have no updates about "dying swans" to share with you. Sadness :(
I feel like we're getting through one or two days at a time, and we keep thinking, "Once we're through this, life should slow down." But then it doesn't.
And now that you've read all this, you're thinking to yourself, "Wow, I'm glad Natasha hasn't been blogging lately!" :) Or you're thinking, "I know exactly how you're feeling." I've noticed that a lot of the blogs I follow have been light on posting lately. I really hope this doesn't mean that blogs are slowly dying. I don't want to stop blogging. I don't want all of you to stop blogging. I'm hoping this just means that we're all in it together this fall.
I really hope I'll be back to regular blogging (and blog reading and commenting) soon. I hope my positive, healthy self will be back soon. I miss all of these things.
Until then, I have dishes to do, laundry to wash, and a vacation to pack for. Wondering where we're headed? Well, a visit to here is definitely on the list of "Things To Do!" (And Dave gets the "Most Amazing Husband Ever Award" for finding out about it in the first place and surprising me with a "Guess where we're going?" conversation. I had no idea that it even existed.) We'll also be spending some time with Dave's grandpa, who turned 96 in September. Oh, and we're driving, so please pray that we will all survive two days of driving togetherness. Family bonding time here we come. Yay?
