What really started out as a joke has become a way of life in our home. Carter now thinks that stickers go on his forehead and yours. It still makes me laugh and you should see the looks we get out in public.
Going through the daily motions but not really ever getting ahead is how I feel lately. Not to say that I'm unhappy, because really I'm not, just feeling stuck. I like to plan ahead and stay ahead of deadlines, that gives me space to breath. It's when I'm not prepared and down to wire that I panic. I've had a lot of anxiety building again and am unable to figure out the cause and really unable to get myself out of the new routine that allows the panic to build. I need to get out of this rutt and figure out how to better manage my life and how to better manage the stress that comes with having little ones and managing a home. To be honest, it's more work than I would have imagined. But at the same time, the work is so much more fulfilling. So here's to another day, maybe tomorrow I can start on my to do list rather than the just "right now" list.
