Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Groundhog Day

Yes, I know that was almost three weeks ago, but do you ever feel like that is your life? I've been that way for the past few weeks. I feel like all I do is wash clothes, wipe noses, clean up messes. Rinse and repeat.

Seems like, too, that it is an experience many of us are having and I just wonder why now?

I think mine may be because I'm getting to take a trip next week and I'm looking forward to it and to get away from the day-to-day drudgery of life. Of course, I feel guilty (see, I'm not a totally bad Catholic) for feeling this way. I should embrace every day and be grateful for it because I know many people who would love to have their daily routines back instead of what they're having to endure right now.

I think I just need a break. Maybe I'll get to it after I wash and fold another load of laundry and mop the floors again.

    For me, it is because I'm going to Florida in a week and a half with the kids and hubby. And it's still winter and we're tired of it. At least here where it's been cold and icy and nasty and cloudy.

    Makes us all grumpy and grumbly and feeling like everything is so blah blah blah.

    Maybe it is all this cold weather we've been having. It has been gorgeous here the past two or three days - in the 70s.

    Yeah, but we may have to pay for our nice weather with severe storms late tonight.

    I don't have a favorite season, I love them all the same. But, I also like change, and seasons certainly change. I have different things I like and dislike about each season, but I make the most of each one. About the time I am fed up with one, just around the corner is a new one. Instead of dreading the end of the current one, I am planning the good fun part of the next one.

    Sometimes it is ok to put things off for another day, as some things are more suitable for long cold winter days, then they are for beautiful warm sun kissed spring days!
