Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t get yourself going? It feels like your batteries are flat and you are just drifting along as the day progresses then look forward to night time. You can’t wait to get into bed and savour every second of sleep you can get. Well that’s exactly how I felt yesterday. I couldn’t get myself to open my laptop or check my phone, because I was so tired. It was as if my soul was tired too.
It all started this Saturday when we worked till two the next morning renovating the house. I painted the insides of the closets and cleaned until it felt like my arms were going to fall off. I was exhausted mentally and physically.
It was also the Little One’s birthday this weekend and I was consumed with guilt as I had not put him first this year, due to the ongoing renovations (of course). Mr sent the Little One gifts and he was so excited that he played with them all day so it lifted the mood somewhat. We had a cake and Skyped while the Little One blew the candles.
Mr has been away for exactly two months now and this is starting to take its toll. We will be seeing him during Christmas break, but I hope we will see each other sooner. This was a very difficult birthday for me as Mr has never missed one of the Little One’s birthdays before.
We also worked on the house again on Sunday and it’s about 90% complete. There are a few zones that require attention, but we should be on track to finish the renovation this week. Finally!
This all led to my break from blogging that I’m ending today. So hello to you and hello to November!
Let’s make it a great month as we lead up to December break.
Love and blessings to you and yours,
