I was really feeling like I couldn't handle very much. Like I was a ticking-time bomb. :( But I feel sooo much better now! It must've been the hormones? I don't know. I'm just glad things are back to normal. ish.
Although, nothing's ever really normal, amIright?
I hope the next time I'm *in* something, I can learn to relax a bit and not try to fix everything. I think I often do that--when I'm in a rough season, I can't see the forest for the trees, and I try to MAKE EVERYTHING NORMAL. Well, that doesn't work when there's a man down, so to speak. I should've cut myself more slack, given the kids more grace(!) and taken it easy a bit more and realized that the season wouldn't last forever.
You live, you learn, right? I'm thankful for that! :)
His mercies are new every morning!
Here are a few pics from a local Deer Park we visited. The kids and I had so much fun!
One thing that I continually find interesting is the fact that I have to keep Littlest from mauling the animals (read: he LOVES them) when Oldest was hesitant to walk in the park at all at first! She got over it, obviously. :)
