I’m so frustrated with myself

I’m getting ready to call it a night after a really long day. I had to get Elliott to work first thing and then begin tackling my ever growing to do list. It feels like I keep adding items and almost never end up checking them off. I pushed myself today and managed to get …

I’m trying to focus on doing better

Today was pretty rough. I spent a good chunk of it sleeping. It’s been body aches, headaches, nausea, cold sweats, and of course, my personal favorite, extreme exhaustion. I haven’t eaten much today and I’ve been trying to stay hydrated as best I can. I ended up mowing the lawn this evening and I definitely …

I’m definitely feeling rough this morning

I’m definitely feeling rough this morning. No two ways about it. I’m not as bad as I have been after previous doses of the COVID vaccine but it’s not fun. I’m up and got the dogs out, have my meds ready to take after I eat, and I’m starting the day with the knowledge that …

Elliott managed to fall asleep, but Emmett had a nightmare, and refuses to go back to bed for fear it’s going to happen again. Then of course, there’s Gavin. Poor Gavin had a particularly bad night. He …

The gentle giant

It’s been another long day for me but I’m doing okay. I didn’t accomplish anything today but I’m not going to beat myself up. I took a long nap today, which was desperately needed, so there’s that I suppose. A bit of selfcare. Yesterday, the boys and I drove to Toledo Ohio to pick up …

So much happened this week and I don’t know where to start

It’s been such a really good week. My stress level is relatively manageable, either that or I’m coping better. Either way, it’s a win. So much has happened over the last seven days, I’m not even sure where to begin. I guess I’ll just start somewhere. There’s been a few new beginning this week. Elliott …
