that pretty much sums up the week for me.
I've had trouble being motivated to do anything and to feel anything but tired and annoyed and then guilty about being tired and annoyed.
It's been 95 degrees all week. Not having central air is really getting to me (to say the least). I never thought I'd say this (I'm normally in love with summer) but I can't wait for fall, even winter. I'm just craving staying inside, being cool (even cold), feeling productive and slowing down (not that I'm moving around too fast lately....but I do feel like I should be).
I have 3 huge piles of clean laundry in my bedroom....it's too hot up there to get around to folding and putting away. We've been eating a lot of Trader Joes frozen meals lately (too hot to cook). I have a whole garden of goodness in the back, but I don't really feel like prepping or eating any of it.
Hazel has been sick the past few days, so we haven't even been able to get to the beach to cool off.
I've been pretty mean to my kids (I've heard them say quite often this week: "Mom, why are you being such a mean mom!") Something about heat and being stuck indoors surrounded by piles of laundry isn't too good for any of us.
Do you ever just feel like you're not really living, you're just kind of surviving? That's how it's been this past week.
I don't even have anything too redeeming to say....no fresh thoughts, no inspiration. Sure, I could probably muster up some things that I should be grateful for....like how adorable Emmeline is right now and how Hazel is bursting with excitement that she gets to start school next week and how Charlie has decided (and is bound and determined) that he's going to be the first man to set foot on Mars.
But mostly I just wanted to say that some weeks aren't so great. And that's ok. Things will get better.
(oh, and I'd like to point out how on top of my blog I am these days....do you like how I still have that banner up from last spring? i'm hoping on one of those better weeks that's bound to come I'll get around to updating things....blogging about all the fun we've had this summer etc.)
