Cutting Myself Some Slack

Have I mentioned yet that I'm moving?

Oh...sorry...yeah I keep talking about it...

This move has invaded every aspect of my life,

And to be honest I am not loving it.

I am not loving that I have not sewn a stitch in over a week

I am not loving that I haven't been able to take my daily pictures

I am not loving the fact that we are in different locations most nights

I am not loving the exhaustion, the frustration, the confusion

I am not loving the chaos of our lives right now

And I mentioned the other day I have felt guilty

I have thought about that guilt

I have dwelled on it

And tonight I have decided

I am going to cut myself some slack

No life isn't perfect right now

My fuse has shrunk a little

But I am going to cut myself some slack

I know I am doing the best I can

We are making the best of our unhappy circumstances

So now we can all breathe deep

Because the move is almost over

And you don't have to "listen" to me prattle on

About it any more....

Promise...

No more pity party...

I'm done...

Tomorrow I am going to post about Jack's birthday party

It was a perfect day

My baby boy {who is hardly a baby anymore} had fun



Until then...

Good night...

And thank you for indulging me and my constant "poor me" posts

  3. You absolutely do need to cut yourself some slack! It is really hard when your life is being completely uprooted - literally!

    The storm will pass and things will be "normal" again soon. Sending you big hugs!

    Oh, and love that picture of Jack. I LOVE his shirt too! Did you make it?

  8. Moving is a huge task...definitely give yourself some slack. Life is busy with or without the move you have a job and a family.

  9. Hey, at least you have it together enough to still have a party for Jack! You should definitely be proud of that :) Hang in there.

  10. Most definitely cut yourself some slack! Shew...I'm stressed and worn out just reading your last few posts!

    Everything will settle down soon. And while there are a lot of changes in your life, GOOD will come out of it all. I'm praying for you.

    Hugs,
