We have all recovered from one of the most revolting and unflattering bouts of the flu we have had. I have thought of posting often, but in all honesty, I am exhausted and am enjoying a bit of a hiatus.
I am attempting to keep the house more in order again. The rythmns of our home more intact. The jobs on the job list in a state of activity. I am finding that my sanity is more intact when I can see the floor. When I know which jobs I am actually going to be able to accomplish in one day and which ones are just plain ridiculous and setting myself up for self-loathing. The kids seem to prosper when we actually do what I say we will be doing and still to the plan rather than follow my poor distractable mind.
With these rediscovered gifts, I am enjoying time to sit with the kids on the floor and draw. Play playdough. Or look out the window at a new bird. I am relishing a moment with my kids. I am drawing deep breaths and calming down.
These last few days have been restful and sedate. I am hoping that this is a new leaf. I know that there are things that I probably 'should' be doing, but I am 'pleased at the moment to be pleased with the moment'.
So please forgive my sporadic posting, I am hopefully sitting with a little one in my lap, sipping a cup of tea and happily rocking to the sound of Bobs and Lolo...or attempting to take a 'normal' family portrait of the three of us....
