Just looking over the fence line for spring.
I am the MOST uninspired right now. January was brutal, and while it’s now passed + we’re into a new month, I’ve still got a severe lack of motivation. It’s not for a shortage of projects, because we all know I got tons of those - I just have no fire in me to get after them.
We have so many amazing things planned this year but I’m having the hardest time waiting for them to happen.
We’ve adopted a couple barn cats that we will be bringing home later this week. ...And then I get my hatching eggs in another month. ...And then we’ve got a few ready-to-lay hens coming at the end of March. ...And then my highland babies will be born anytime after April. ...And then fingers crossed my donkey dreams come true soon after that.
Like I said - TONS of forking exciting things to look forward to in the next few months, ZERO amounts of patience to sit around and wait for it.
The pandemic fatigue is real. This lockdown blows. I miss my friends. I miss my family. My 9 month old son barely knows his grandparents. My 2 year old is missing out on experiences I always imagined she’d have at this age. My mom guilt is maxed out + I feel like I’m screwing my kids up. I MISS ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI.
BUT - we are healthy. We have a roof over our heads. Food on our table. My husband has a job. I’ve been able to spend every day with my sweet babes. I’ve been gifted the incredible opportunity to rediscover my passions + find myself again after having two kids. I have so much to be grateful for, and I really am (despite all my complaining).
How are you doing right now? No, REALLY, how are you? I get it. I’m a mom. I’m also a regular ole human. Spring’s almost here you guys, we’re so close!
