Standards have lowered y’all. I can’t even explain how it is to just keep moving forward when it feels like I’m failing on all fronts.
I know at sometime in the future we will look back on this time and realise we got through it, but right now a lot of it sucks.
It doesn’t all suck. We are eating lots of veggies from our garden and the hens are laying well. The Resident Teen is learning to clean the house and making a good job of it. I’ve started two new quilts that will probably take all year.
Annie and I sorted all her clothes and tidied her room, it looks amazing. I’ve lost two kgs at weight watchers and gained some much better habits. I also got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes so that was a kick in the butt.
But then there are mornings like yesterday when Annie burnt her arm, forgot her togs and her breakfast, and I had to explain to her teacher why I haven’t bought stationery yet. (The Resident Teen got her two hash browns at morning tea and the day was saved.)
They say it takes a village to raise a child. I don’t know where the village is, but it definitely takes teamwork. In my house, we are all holding each other up to get through.
This too will pass.No one will cried today.
