All in all, I have to remember, I have to realize... that I have a voice. I have a heart.
I won't lie or sugarcoat it. Life is not the easiest right now. My weekday hours are set in stone and I feel like most of the time I've become a robot on autopilot. Work. Dinner. Prep for next day. Bed. Repeat.
So, friends. That is why it has been so stagnant here. I know I am not leaving a big, gaping hole in the blogging universe when I skip out for a month, but I am perhaps leaving a big gaping hole in my heart. Slaving myself to a schedule and not ever breaking away from it in order to pour my soul out through a platform other than the nightly scrubbing of bottles and pumping supplies is just... wrong. I have a voice, I have a heart. I am much more than a robot.
The dark circles under my eyes are telling me it's past my bed time. I'll leave it at that. Until next time...
But I'll leave with a little 'round here post for old time's sake.
'Round here the flu season has been eating out family alive. Yeah, there. I said it. It has been tough on Elliott, who has been to the ER and admitted to the hospital far too many times since 2014 began. I am hoping we can put it all behind us, but we are staring at another illness in the face this week and I won't lie when I say the stress of it is defeating me.
No gardening this year. I can't do it. I have two babies in the house and I just can't leave the little seedling babies outside without water all summer. A mama would never do that.
My artwork finds it way out of my fingertips every now and then. I am especially proud of the hand painted heart pillow I made last month. I even sold one on Instagram!
'Round here baby Penelope is 6 months old. WTF. I have no idea how that happened, but she's really taking to solid foods, is sitting up, rolling over, charming the pants off everyone she meets, and becoming such a special little girl. Just one year ago I was shaking in my boots over the idea of having another so soon, but oh! Life is not life without Penelope.
How was your March? What did I miss?
