Last week was not a good one.
I have many stressors in my life right now: not sleeping well, Meredith having anxiety, Liam teething, finances in bad shape, work unpredictable, not to mention the general craziness of being a working mom to little kids.
But last week I was not handling anything well. I forgot completely about self-care and let my grumpiness come out in full force each evening at home. By the end of it I was wondering if it was time for me to consider therapy.
And then I realized: HORMONES. Yup, my body was going through some stuff (ahem) and hormones are changing and I don’t think it was a coincidence.
ANYWAY. We ended up having a great weekend, lots of quality time with the kids and no one had a meltdown, including me! I even made a lot of progress with my Week in the Life album, got to see a friend, and David and I had a date. We’ve been doing at-home dates to save money, and right now we’re watching The Good Wife. He makes fun of it, but I love it.
This week David has to work late every day, but I am focusing on self-care. I even went so far as to make myself a checklist, because that kind of thing helps me.
