Life has been so crazy lately. What with the wedding and moving house for the bazilyionth time this year, I’ve found it really difficult to just stop and breathe. My to-do list was always so jam packed with what I needed to do for main events in our lives that I didn’t have time to do the normal things that I could see everyone doing around me. Things like decorating the boys room, buying clothes (or even being aware of what clothes I wanted), planning date nights, exploring with the boys. So many times I’d see someone buying lush accessories for their home and I’d think ‘I can’t even think of that right now, I’ll do that once the wedding is over‘. Or I’d see people exploring their local towns and I’d think ‘the local park will do today, after the wedding we’ll go further afield‘.
Well now I can concentrate on those things. I can spend an evening doing online clothes shopping for myself and the boys ( not Pete, Pete’s too fussy and has far too expensive taste for my measly bank account). I can search for fun places to take the boys at the weekend, and pin away my home decor ideas without feeling guilty that I should be spending my time and money elsewhere.
I feel like the rollercoaster has stopped and I can just live. I can focus on making mine and my families lives more fun, easier and exciting. I can plan for our future while living in the present and not worrying about what I should have done in the past. It’s such a wonderful feeling and I guess I just want to capture it now before the next adventure begins. Apart from things like birthdays and Christmas which, by the way, I’ve already started planning (go me), our next big life move will be becoming UK homebuyers and that won’t be for at least two years. Having another baby will hopefully follow that and until then I’ll just sit here, and breathe.
Do you find life comes in bursts of craziness or can you just breathe through it all with ease?
