How are you all? This week turned out to be a rough week for me. I feel overwhelmed with things I have to get done for school, my son was feverish (twice), my daughter seems to be anxious and upset about something – although my husband and I haven’t figured it out yet. Instagram is annoying me. Now that I’m really trying to focus on it and grow my account, it’s playing all these crazy games with me. I know I’m not alone with the Instagram thing, it’s just so darn frustrating.
And I’m still missing our true home. I miss my east coast family. I need family right now more than ever. But that’s not an option for us when you live so far from everyone. I wish I could take a walk with my mom or see my sister. I want to see them in person, not just talk to them over the phone. Sometimes – it feels so lonely here.
I really try to put things in perspective during a week like this. I try to remember all the things I am so grateful for because we have so much to be thankful for.
I think the thing that is bothering me most is not knowing exactly what is bothering my daughter. I have my thoughts on it. Her best friend is in the other class this year. I’m not sure how that’s going for her. She’s an amazing little person. She’s the one who is always trying to be a friend and an advocate for the one who doesn’t have any. But who’s being her advocate right now? I think it’s hard – she doesn’t have that friend to sit with at lunch or play with at recess. I know you can’t fight all your kids battles but I want to. Parenting is hard. You feel the same physical and emotional pains that your kids feel. Maybe even deeper.
Have a great weekend all.
