I always try real hard to stay positive and share my journey with others in a way that they are not alone. Life is messing and no one has the right to judge anyone else !! We need to lift each other up and be there for fellow humans !! We are all the human race.
Anyway, I need a break! I need to shed the tears and take a deep breathe more often than people realize. You know why? Because I too am human!! I am not made of Steel and I am not done super human. I break!!
It is in those moments that I am able to build myself back into the person I need to be!!! I can think clearly after a good cry, I can regroup and move forward into my purpose. I do not ever want someone to look at me and say, but you never let this stuff get you down!, uh yeah I DO!
Yesterday was another eventful chaos for us! First we did school at home, then a zoom class for my little miss . We had lunch and went to L’s hearing test, where we found out that she will in fact need hearing aids. This meant taking impressions of her ears !! Ok so this goo makes crackling noises as it hardens. So kind of not fun.
After this event, she was able to pick what colors she wants her fancy hearing aids to be, so that made her happy. But!!, the audiologists office does not have her favorite safety suckers so that was traumatic!!
Now we head over to another thing we have to do, pick up Grandpas medication at The pharmacy. Because sitting for 15 minutes in the drive they is absolutely a great time for a kid!!!
We are now headed to my physical therapy appointment!!! Good times !! Sitting in a little room while mom is busy is never easy for this girl! She really is a busy girl!! So what does Miss L do …. she starts blowing bubbles in her cloth mask!!! You know because this is gonna be just fine!!🤦♀️🤦♀️
Just leave the mask in the car overnight and the gum freezes and comes right off!!!
On our way home I get a phone call from husband telling me I should go to the hospital because his mother has been taken back in! I am 4 miles from home and 40 miles from the hospital 🤦♀️ Can I take a break now ??? I get home and it appears that life is normal inside my home. I make the calls I need to make to find out what’s going on with my mother in law.
I truly wish this is where my day ends but it’s not! I have chores to do kids to feed and my oldest child and her husband came to visit !! First thing is the dogs go bonkers because Sissy is home!! Then she says, “Mom, what’s for supper?” Yeah, ok nope I haven’t thought about that yet. We are going out! I just have nothing left in me to make anything!! Sometimes you just have to know when you are depleted!
We have to say NO once in a while because life is messy and we just can not do everything every day!! Do Not feel bad when you know you have to take that break !! We absolutely need to recharge to be able to keep moving forward. Life happens and we need to do the things, but we also need to do what makes us feel alive too!!
So embrace the good, handle the bad and keep moving my friends!! Stay tuned for more of our new normal!! This hearing aids adventure could be super interesting! I am so thrilled my child is finally getting a little help!!!
Love and Light
