Sucker punched.

Ever feel like the wind has been sucked out of your sail?  Like the schedules and routines in place just aren’t enough to keep you on track?  Yesterday I felt like I was kicking and moving and just couldn’t keep my head above the proverbial water.  It started a few days ago with just feeling more frumpy than usual. Then yesterday I had to listen to a baby (or both) cry on and off all. day. long.  I know it wasn’t Ryann’s fault, two ear infections and two teeth breaking through the gums, I’d cry too.  But just when I thought it couldn’t get worse I walked into poop.

I need a break. And I’m so happy to be headed home (home will always be where I grew up).  Nine days sharing a house with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece and hopefully new baby niece.  It’ll be crazy, but I cannot wait.  There will be extra arms for Ryann to hang out in; a grandmother who will be more than happy to play with her while I catch a few extra minutes of sleep and new toys to learn and explore.

If I’m a bit absent or absent-minded this week, please forgive me. I’m cleaning, packing, and running around with a sick, teething baby just trying to get everything done without forgetting my wallet when I dash out the door.  I have a few guest post commitments, and I’ll be back with a new attitude and hopefully less tired eyes in a few days.  And how appropriate that I’m in the spotlight at Brandee’s blog for her Maternally Insane week…because it’s so appropriate and fitting. Go read about one of my maternally insane moments!
