These days my little family feels a bit stretched thin and at the same time cramped.
With my busy working schedule and my husbands busy school schedule
With after school, during school, and weekend activities
With social events, friends, family
The only pictures we get these days are taken on our phones,
Cameras require more planning than we have the bandwidth for.
Meals are often prepared with consideration to night time activities,
or how easy they can be packed the next day
as lunch or an at school dinner.
Pancakes are prepared in mass quantities (whether intentionally or not)
And enjoyed as a warm breakfast
Even when there is only 10 minutes to spare.
Work hours go from really long one day, to very few the next
juggling who needs to be where and when.
These days life as we know it is hectic and sometimes a little more than stressful
But there is something about it that I love
Knowing that Dan's schooling is temporary, and will end in March
There is a light at the end of the tunnel,
Maybe that helps.
I love being involved in life and doing more than just being
I love seeing old friends, and building new relationships
I love watching my children grow, change, adapt
I won't lie though,
I do really look forward to the mundane
An easy day-to-day routine of life
But for now I'll embrace our crazy life
Our loud, stretched a little too thin, mad dash
And some day, while I'm sitting at home,
No plans, no where to be
I'll look back at the insanity and be grateful.
