What The What?
*Slides in the room in socks a la Risky Business.*
Hey guys! Long time no see!
*Waves to my followers - Mom, Aunt Connie and some random lady who really likes my hair.*
It's been a while - three weeks or there about.
To say things have been insanely busy would be like saying Miley Cyrus slightly embarrassed herself at the MTV music awards.
I won't bore you with the gory details, but I'll give you a brief rundown of what's been on the menu.
*Both boys were sick with viruses and had 103 degree temperatures. My poor sweet babies! Laying there, burning up and shivering at the same time. So pitiful! Lukewarm baths, Ibuprofen and cold water to drink ASAP!
*Trying to get the tiny people to eat healthier. No, for the 47th time. You cannot have Goldfish for dinner.
*Working on getting Baby L the help he needs for his speech. "Yo-Urt, Mommy?" "You would like for Mommy to get you some yogurt?" "Sure!"
*Self-Doubt. Am I doing this right? Am I doing this wrong? Does this shirt look stupid? Do these jeans make me look fat?
*Annual girls' trip. Okay, this one was actually a stress reliever. But I wasn't going to write on my girls trip! This is time for hanging with my favorite ladies to catch-up and eat and drink ourselves silly.
*Runs hand over head. Rubs the back of neck.*
So yeah. It's been a little busy around here.
But Life is like that, isn't it?
One day, you and Life are BFF's. Riding on your unicorns together through the rainbows. Drinking your hot cocoa. Braiding each others hair.
She punches you in the face!
WHAT THE WHAT?!
Life, she is one moody wench.
What can you do?!
Well, for me, sometimes I have good cry. (Hormones are stupid.) Then, I wipe away my tears, pull up my big girl pants and decide I'm not gonna take that crap.
There is something inside of me, a tiny spark, that makes me get back up and try again.
That tiny spark? I'd like to think it's the Holy Spirit.
Maybe you think it's your chi or your soul or the human spirit.
Maybe it is. I don't really know.
But here's the thing.
I have a lot of things worth getting up for.
My husband. My kids. My mom. My step-dad. My family. My friends.
So yeah, sometimes Life turns around and gives me a mean right hook and it knocks me down.
But, she better watch out.
Because I AM going to get up. And when I do. I'll be REALLY hacked off.
