My husband kicked me out!
I look like absolute - momlife 🤨😆 right now. Bad hair, smudged up shirt, pants that don’t fit right (to loose) and I’m sitting at a coffee shop.
He gave me 5 minutes to grab my shit and go.
Don’t worry, he kicked me out the door to get a break. He even put in directions to a coffee shop I hadn’t been to. My phone was even telling me to get out! 😆.
Definitely needed this break. I love my tiny people crew but I am mentally spent right now.
There are things that help but once in a while an actual physical change of location without kids touching me is necessary.
A little self care goes a long way.
Oh, I just got word that school is cancelled AGAIN tomorrow. 😱😱
My kids are gonna be like, “Mommy it’s 4th of July, can we stay up?!” And I’m gonna be like, “of course not babies! It’s a school night!” 😒🙄 •
Y’all I love my children more than life itself, but on what feels like SNOW DAY 23789 of #snowmageddon2019 in Seattle... I legit slept in with intent to workout WHILE they were up so I could eat up part of the day. 🤪❄️
Sorry, not sorry, Mommy needed the built in SANITY BREAK!! 🤷🏻♀️❄️😂
How are y’all getting through this?! All suggestions welcome. ❄️😂❄️
Been having the Sunday blues lately - it’s when the weekend is almost over and you still have tons of work backlog and a never ending list of house chores to do. Today has been especially toxic and I needed to take a #sanitybreak. So I fired up the oven for some #kitchentherapy. At the end of the day, nothing got done ... but I have a lovely basket of butter rolls 😋 #alliswell#homemade#bread#carbsarelife
#sonnyboy dropped by last night to pick something or another up with his buddy. (I stole a smooch!) At the time, we had finally moved up to 1°F. 😊 It is a #difficultweek & I honestly did have #cabinfever. I missed Luke especially in the last few days. I asked Him what I always did when I needed or wanted a #sanitybreak...when I would go outside in even the worst #weather. Well, you know, #Cigarettes are about $11/pack around #Chicago. At least last time I bought a pack. Almost $80/week. I’m almost #homeless with no #car, no #job, no #apartment of my own...Applying for everything but as always full of grandiose ideas...my #respiratory#health just #nosedived into early #breathing#onset#COPD & I am already #asthmatic. I had the first #surgery on my #elbow 2018, and it was delayed two hours before they could take me into surgery because my #O2#oxygensaturation would Not rise to 100% (why they did not put a full mask on me and not just the nasal canule, whatever). #QUITTINGSMOKING is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, so not just economically, but more so because I did not want to get #lung cancer...I QUIT SMOKING A YEAR AGO TODAY!!!!!!!!!! 😁😁😁😆🤩🤩🤩🤩🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
For the most part, life is "picture perfect"!...but y'all KNOW sometimes pictures can be deceiving!! MOM life, WIFEY lifey, COACH life, DAUGHTER life, SISTER life, FRIEND life, WORK life...the list goes on! Every aspect of each of these titles brings something magnificent to who I am and who I have become.
At some point, though, you have to set it ALL aside and JUST. DO. YOU!...take a moment/day/week (if possible), to unwind and reboot. If not, it can feel like you have control of NOTHING. (Here is where you slide right to the next photo.) "Stress, anxiety, and depression are caused when you are living to please others." -Paulo Coehlo
I used to LIVE to keep everyone else happy, but I got lost in it. That is a BIG job and it wasn't MY responsibility alone.
Keep YOURSELF happy and the others will feed off your good vibes😘 *Thanksgiving 2017 memories*
