i’m not sure how to properly introduce all of this but – our household is just too damn overwhelmed. so overwhelmed in fact, that it’s starting to affect our health. we’re all cranky and overtired anymore. if it’s not one thing, it’s another. we need to do this, we need to do that, we need to be here, we need to be there… to quote mr. lennon “i’m just sitting here watching the wheels go ’round and ’round…” the wheels. in my head. ’round and ’round and ’round they go.
i think i just realized that i totally started writing about this the other day. about my wardrobe (which i have started to slowly clean out). i suppose that it extends further than all that. it’s really in the bones of my existence right now. there’s just too much stuff… stuff in the house, stuff to do, stuff to keep on top of, stuff to pay for, stuff to remember. then this morning, kate was acting wild, brett ate something that was supposed to be for kate’s lunch, my low pressure tire light went off on the way into work. it’s always something… and i think i’m losing my mind anymore.
i have a few thoughts on how to combat all of this. first, we have to stop eating like garbage. maybe i need to channel my inner ma ingalls and start putting more nutritious food on the table. second, i think it’s time to slow down the pace – let’s turn on the record player more and the cell phones less. maybe walk outside a bit, or at least stop staring at the tv all the time. third, (and i’m trying to work on this) it’s time to shift our mindset. start being less worried about what other people think or are doing, and start being concerned with my family and our happiness.
