I know it has been awfully quiet here lately. I tried to warn you that I was in one of those moods. This quiet phase has been more deep rooted and long lasting than most, and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't bring myself to write a decent post. It isn't that things aren't going well in our little world, but our family is in need of a "reset". We are all a little out of sorts with a lot coming up on the calendar, and until we can hit the "reset" button, we are merely scraping by. That's no way for a family to live. At least not our family.
Mark has been busy and preoccupied with his work, Jude and Cal Henry have been way over-tired, and the ensuing behavior and meltdowns have left me feeling thoroughly unequipped as a mom. We are out of our routine, expectations have become fuzzy, and our relationships feel like they have taken a back seat to our circumstances. We are more reactionary and less intentional. Again, nothing drastic. Just enough to leave us slightly off kilter. And we all love each other enough to just STOP everything and reset.
So that's where I've been. I am not sure how long I will continue to be so quiet - both in mind and in cyberspace. I actually had the thought of stopping this blog altogether, but I also know that this is a valuable outlet for me. So I imagine I will be back soon! I have a big change coming up for me in regards to my health and the never ending pursuit for renewed energy. If I am up for it, I will share some about that in the future. In the mean time I will try to post some pictures or little stories about our day.
But I'm feeling too quiet for much more right now.
