Raw Truth

It’s been a long time since I’ve written and a lot has changed. First and foremost, I have become a cranky, no fun, yelling, stomping, pouting baby. But let me caveat – we are moving. And it has turned me into a monster! I really hope that I am not the only one who has turned into such an awful human being during this stressful time, but if I am…well, just lie and tell me I’m not!

It seems like I make some progress with packing and cleaning up and organizing and then I turn around and there’s a mess! Additionally, at the end of the night, it always looks like nothing was even done. And don’t even get me started on the kids’ messes…how we are supposed to “show” our house in pristine condition with two children is beyond me.

Ok, so I know nobody wants to read a whining, complaining, negative post so lets turn this around (besides, I think I’ve gotten it out of my system by now!) I have decided to take a step back when I start feeling like this – which really is almost every night right now, so I should probably take a step back every other night or I won’t get a thing done. And by “take a step back,” I mean – have a glass of wine (on a Friday night OR a Tuesday night), watch some trash TV (like the Bachelor), do your nails, listen to music, cry or laugh hysterically at your favorite movie. Whatever helps you to calm down and get your head on straight, DO IT. Because let me be honest here, if you don’t do this? Well, you’re going to become one heck of a horrible person super fast. Trust me on that one…

Cheers!
