I'm not going to lie, I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.
Now that Christmas has come and gone, I seem to be in a post-holiday funk. I've got e-mails backing up into oblivion, posts to write, products/books to review, and a novel to edit (among other things) and I haven't done anything. Not. One. Thing.
Today I got caught up with cleaning and laundry, hooked up our Xbox with kinect, and tried to find homes for all our new toys. It is ridiculous the amount of toys these two got! We need to build an addition just for toy storage purposes!
I'm going to try to sneak away (read: saddle husband with kiddos) tomorrow to get back into fashionista mode. I have really been struggling with finding the time to do/write all that I want to. I need to get a schedule worked out and stick to it - with a more probable goal of 3-4 posts a week (in addition to any local happenings that I post on Flower City Fashion). I think trying to post every day just isn't feasible at this point in my life. With no more naps, special needs, and a crazy travel schedule these next two months - time just isn't on my side.
I also can't help but be impacted by the tragedy and loss that seems to be everywhere I turn. It has made me realize how blessed I am. That life is too short to sweat the small stuff. We're healthy. We're together. I'm so thankful to be home with my kids, to have my family safe and sound, to be able to provide the treatment necessary for Colt (and potentially Cooper too). Those are the important things. Sometimes its the most important things that we tend to forget. I don't want to take those things for granted any more.
As this year comes to a close, I think one of my resolutions should be to go easier on myself, to know that sometimes simple is best, and to remember that the people I love are most important. Everything else should just fall into place...
Hope you had a very merry Christmas with all the people you love best. And to those of you who are are grieving, sad, and lonely this holiday season - you're in my prayers tonight and always.
See you tomorrow!
