No Will....


Today, I have:
No will to post....though I have stories to tell.

* a credo to share
* a trip to Chicago to rave about
* some leftover Christmas photos
* sadly, Noah's birthday cake smash, still...

And more, I am sure.

But today is dreary. And gloomy. And chilly. And it is all I can do to keep a smile on my face for my little guy when he wants to play, so today...... I am giving myself permission to not worry about the "shoulds"....

And perhaps I will have to keep giving myself permission every day, just to get through winter.

So I'll just be here, in the attic, in flannel pajama bottoms and mismatched t-shirt, trying to keep up with the laundry and the toy piles, trying to maintain a small reservoir or cheer and silly songs for the wee one, and eventually, perhaps, I will get the will back to:

catch up on photos. Write. Check off a to-do-list. Force my hair to look presentable enough to go out of the house. Feel motivated. Feel "up".

Until then.... well.... forgive me.
*blah*

  3. I feel the SAME way. It's been a long winter here (Mass) already with the ice storms/lost power/ non- stop snow. It feels like its just always so yucky.

    And keeping up with the kids and house, all the while trying to keep a smile there for when Hubby gets home, or when the kids want to play a game or read a book for the 90th time that day because they are bored too! Just

    Blech.

    We love to hear about your adventures, and see your beautiful pictures- but we would much rather have a content mama!

  4. Well I guess I can wait to hear about all of that!

    Winter is blah. Keep up with it the best you can. That's all you can do!

  5. Sorry about the blah day. Maybe give yourself a break and revel in the fact you can wear your pjs all day if you want to. Also, have some chocolate ever hour on the hour. Might do the trick (and if it doesn't, at least you can enjoy the treat for a minute).

  6. This kinda feels like 'forced commenting'.... :) BUT, I would've been leaving one anyways.

    I have these blah days ALL.THE.TIME....you are allowed to have a few blah days to balance out your awesomeness...at least, that's what I always tell myself! :)
