It’s Faceless Friday!!
Here are the things that rocked my face off this past week:
Moms. I have spent all week with my friend KT watching her kiddos while she worked thirds, which means I was in charge of getting a 6 year old girl ready for school and a 15 month old boy ready for the day. I have no idea how you moms do this on a daily basis, EVERY day… I found myself trying to get up a little earlier so I could drink some coffee before the morning began. And how in the hell do you moms get children ready AND still look like functioning, and pretty, parts of society? You all rock my face off. Hard.
Nico Harper not up and dying on me. This was a scary week for us. He had some sort of blockage or infection or whatever and it was touch and go for the first couple of days. I would go into the details, but they are too gross to think about this early. That dog saved my life and I would be lost without him, especially these days when I feel lost already.
Acts of surrender. I have not been so good at surrendering this week, not like I have in the past. I am torn between letting go and holding on for dear life. My heart is broken, but at least I can act as if I am surrendering. Fake it till you make it right? And since one day at a time is not working I am taking the days in ten minute intervals. Sigh.
New Craughers, and the ones that have been with me since the beginning. What the hell would I do without all of you reaching out to me and letting me know I have something of value to say? Thank you, sincerely, thank you.
I’m not really sure how I am going to make it through this weekend, but I know somehow I will. Thank you all for being here for me, for supporting me, and for laughing and crying with me.
