Holy shit people! What a week.
I am just home from a long vacation in which I did a million amazing, relaxing, and joyful things and now that seems like so long ago. I would sleep in and drink delicious coffee in the morning, that was made for me I might add. Have drinks with adults and talk about things besides the next object my kids want to blow up. Ahh, you only know how good you have it when its gone.
I mean there have been amazing moments. But raising kids and building a house are two of the most exhausting things to me. I’m sure someone is out there doing it much more gracefully then we are but whatever. I can only be who I am and the best version of myself is not that person. Its even harder when I just want to run and hang out/catch up with my friends and their kids.
This is my first full week back and I put the kids in camp so I could help Eddie and spend some time with him while we work on the house. So that has been really nice, but it hasn’t been all smiles because I have a learning curve when I am coming up to help out and I know that he is frustrated, I mean I am frustrated with myself. Plus 100 degree temps and my children begin children.
The finish line is in sight but its on one of the false flats that are just really grueling. But I know we can make it, because we have come this far. I just need to get my game face on, keep my head down and grit through it. I have done some amazing things in my life and this will be another one when it is all said and done. Anyway I like the quote I found. I think it brings a lot of life into perspective, things are hard but good stuff is just up ahead.
Stay focused, eye on the prize. We can all do this. (Make it till happy hour that is).
