reprieve

It’s been a hell of a week.  Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on our yard and left us without power for 4 days.  The first day is the hardest.  No computer, no internet, no lights or hot water.  You are forced into a getting-back-to-basics mind frame.  Early to bed, maybe even catching up on a book you’ve neglected.  It forced me to completely unplug from my business which is never an easy thing to do.  Even when I’m “not-working” and with my kids my mind is constantly going to back to my t0-do list of the endless things that can and need to be done.  It’s a constant.  But for a few days I felt like what it would be like if I could just focus on my kids.  There was less frustration, less fighting, because mommy was fully present.  It’s a tough balance and sometimes it can feel like you’re totally failing even though everyone always asks, “How do you do it all?”  Well, sometimes it can wear on you.  Mentally and emotionally.  Sometimes you just need a break from everything and everyone.  In July I found myself feeling this way so I escaped back home to spend some time reconnecting with my kids and getting some good ol’ Vermont and NH summer air in my lungs.  It was just what the doctor ordered.  Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  xoxo

    and no power for 4 days. wow, you are a trooper.
    but hey, unplugging for a few days, is a good thing for all of us. but i kind of like the idea of it being a choice, not forced upon us due to something like irene. darn irene.

    Sandra Bludau - This is really refreshing and inspires me to stop slack’n on my project 365 photos. I have gotten to comfortable snapping an iphone pick when needed. Your words remind me of the up and coming movie with S.J.P. “I don’t know how she does it”.
