Finding North

My goal this week was to post once a day.

It's Thursday and this is my second post of the week.


I'm not quite sure what's going on in this little head of mine, but to say I've been a bit off is an understatement. I think my kids and I are suffering from a major case of lets-be-done-with-school-already-and-get-to-summer-playtime-and-while-you're-at-it-send-some-sun-our-way-itis. I'm am a girl who enjoys seasons and it feels like this year we've only had two: gray skies and wind. It's annoying.

And I think it's bogged me down a little more than usual because my get up and go definitely got up and went. I've been spending my days knocking around my house, flitting from one project to the next without really accomplishing anything.

I hate it when I do that.

And is it just me or does it feel like the world is sort of tilted the wrong way at the moment? Two of my favorite families are moving away, a dear friend's life has been thrown for a loop, and I know two families who heard the words "they have cancer" since Monday. Someone is trying to tell us something. I sure hope I'm listening.

Today I'm going to work on getting my bearings and flying right. I'm going to focus on the little people in my house and not the projects I see surrounding them. I'm going to make something new for dinner, wash the bedding, and read lots of stories to the sweet faces looking up at me.

That should fix it all nicely I think.

If you've been feeling like me, head here for a sweet giveaway. I've been lucky enough to receive April's treasures in the past and they are truly lovely.

I am really feeling you! I am very sorry to hear about your friends and their families. I will keep them all in my thoughts.

I think you are right on to focus on your littles. That always seems to set things straight. That and a little sunshine :)

I'm feeling the same way lately. I totally understand this post. The last few weeks have felt so weird and every day just feels off. I'm not sure if it's because we're trying to squeeze too many things in or what. Hope today is a good relaxing day for you!

Summer is just around the corner deary...I say we should schedule a little weekend fun in P-town to make both of us/families happier!
