There have been few other things in my life that make feel like I'm just barely hanging on or getting by like parenthood! It's a wild ride. One moment I'm high on life and feeling like super-woman and the next I've crashed and have that feeling of just clinging to a ledge of... sanity? order? by my fingernails. I've come to appreciate it is just kind of how life feels right now and to not judge it as a bad thing. It's also why I am feeling more and more that staying really present in the moment is the only way to be. That and keeping a "big-picture" perspective make it less overwhelming.
Even so, it's tempting not to look forward to the next big thing, the next high, next vacation - which for me usually means family time. In two and a half weeks we are making the trek to Rochester for Thanksgiving and I know it will be here in a flash. So till then we are trying to keep on living, loving, and learning together. I have a lot of ideas swirling that are potential posts, but I'm trying to be patient and realize that time for that will present itself without me pushing or stressing about it. The kids and rest for me are my priorities at the moment.
