This is me. I feel like I have been on a perpetual tilt a whirl ride for the last 4 weeks -- like I am Sandra, frantically trying to steer this crazy possessed bus through a crowded metropolis while having Keanu awkwardly whisper distracting commands in my ear...Dude, I am trying to concentrate!
And, I don't mean to whine and complain, because the root of all of this upheaval comes from a very good place -- we have done some incredible things as a family over the last month, but at the same time we are starting to feel the effects of not having our usual routines and schedules....I guess it takes a little adventure for you to appreciate the mundane sometimes :)
I've always been a creature of habit. I once touted that I loved spontaneity, that I always wanted adventure and the feeling of not knowing what was coming next....who was I kidding. I love routine. I don't like the idea of a routine....but I love routine. Right now, we, as a family are routine-less....and we are lost without it!
We still have a couple of more weeks before we get back into the swing of our normal, 'boring' life. Until then I will try to relax, enjoy myself and catalog all of this 'craziness' into my mental memory catalog -- because I know when the kids are older, and the house is quiet, and my life is mundane by default, not by choice, I will reflect on these moments and smile....and wish I hadn't been so hasty to move through them...
