In the wake of my unhappiness, there are a couple of things that I've come to realize...
1) the life of a working mom sucks
2) it's so important to cherish your 'me' time
I had about 30 minutes to chill out today, by myself, while Xanderman napped. I got caught up on the blogs that I have (so poorly) been following, and I even found myself reading my OLD blog (http://web.me.com/roxyschmid/www.terlie.com/_blog/_blog.html) that I started through iWeb. I didn't have the patience to completely transfer all of the posts into Blogger, which I kind of regret. Re-reading the posts from my pre-working days, made me sad. I really miss having the time to cook, and craft, and blog about my daily adventures. I miss having the time and energy to go to the gym. I miss waking up with enthusiasm every morning. In as little as 4 short months, everything has changed so much.
The stress of work has taken a toll on my family life, and I can't seem to turn things around.
I keep waiting for a break, but I'm losing hope. Is this what the rest of our lives are going to be like? As long as Bri and I are working full time, will we just have to face this disconnect in our family life? I sure hope not.
