Wednesday Randomness: January 2018 Brain Dump

This is likely to be all over the place. Lots going on. It was a snow day today, so my quiet day of working and writing quickly disappeared.

I’m still desperately trying to find the balance in life. Some days, I think I’m getting closer, but other days… Like now, mostly what I’m thinking about is how behind I am on pretty much everything.

The hubby is traveling again, so I’m taking another trip on the single parent train. It’s not too bad, though, with 2 of the kids driving – drastically cuts back on my running around. And the oldest just got his own car, so that helps even more. But it’s still not easy when he’s gone…not just because of day-to-day logistics…

BUT…after he gets home, I’m running away. I’m going to be in Michigan for a bit – which includes invading Bronwyn’s house, likely driving her family nuts, and getting to see some of my other fave people, including some of the other Wed bloggers. I can’t wait. I need the break away from everyday craziness, the chance to see friends I don’t get to see often enough, and the time to just write without other things pulling at me.

I’m having conflicting feelings about the fact my oldest is turning 21 in a week. He’s a great guy, and I’m so proud of him, and I feel like I’ve done something good and right in this world when I see the man he’s becoming, but omg, my baby is turning 21 – how is that even possible?

So, yeah, that’s what’s been on my mind. I need to play catch-up tomorrow, so I’m going to sign off and get my ass to bed. 🙂

  1. Balance. Freaking balance. But I have faith in you. Someday, you’ll be caught up–or you know, less far behind. *HUGS*

    Also, I can’t wait to see you. And my family loves you!

  2. *hugs* Don’t sweat the “being behind.” As you noted those kids grow up so very fast. Enjoy them now while you can. It won’t be long before you will have more time than you want to “get caught up.” I know it doesn’t seem like it now, but hang in. It will work out the way it is supposed to. Enjoy the now!

  3. OMG.. Sheldon! I feel all of this. Single mom (always, lol) Kyle is 21 this year, too. And I’m convinced Balance is the Holy Grail… or a Unicorn. Something. Love the post. Hope hubby comes back soon.
