The balance - sometimes sick is good
Mostly I feel like the Cat in the Hat, balancing a variety of people, places and things.
Lately, I've been thrown a curve or two - my mother's dementia worsening due to a drug issue, Andy's traveling schedule ramping up.
We all know what happens in the next picture of the Cat, he adds more things and everything crashes down into a huge mess.
It's taken me many years to figure it out, but finally I've figured out just how many curve balls I can hit & keep going.
Isobel woke up last night with a stomach bug, it kept us up until 2. I woke up this morning & started my period.
I decided to step off of the balancing ball for the day. I canceled my mother's doctor's appointment, canceled play dates, meetings, everything.
Instead, I'm caring for the kiddo, and doing little projects around the house. Stressing 0%.
I put everything down instead of letting it crash around me. It's good.
