I’m a pessimist. Therefore I see problems first and then come up with solutions. Unfortunately, I usually come up with one solution, and if it doesn’t work, then I keep beating it against the problem, hoping that it’ll work. It usually doesn’t. I call this my box theory.
I’m co-dependent. Which really sucks. And I’m praying that I don’t have to go to Co-Dependents Anonymous for the rest of my life.
It’s not normal not to want me time.
I need to actually reach out and make friends. Which I’m doing, like having coffee with a mom friend or lunch with my sister-in-law because she’s that cool.
I need time alone with The Husband. I kind of forget how important that is.
I really do miss date nights.
I miss not being responsible.
So if I’m juggling motherhood, marriage, friends, me-time, and housework, when am I going to write?
I need to break out of my planning-box every once in a while.
The blogs are where I go to have friends and realize what is normal, like needing time alone and kids putting things in their butt cracks. You guys rock my world.
Maybe I should stop making New Year Resolutions and make Birthday Resolutions.
Self-examining is f-ing hard. It hurts my head. It hurts my heart. But I’m still surviving.
I am the phoenix.
