Well That Probably Explains It…..

I’ve been kind of a mega bitch this week. I just feel gross and icky and unsettled. I can’t sleep. Work has been more of a challenge than usual, and I feel like I’m letting balls drop. I am in a funk. Things are just not going well. Long Board and I are good – but a bit strained now and then.

So today at work, I was processing an invoice when I realized it was November 22.

And that Cupcake’s birthday is November 23.

Ahhhh. Now it makes some sense. Of course, I KNEW that her birthday was the 23rd, I suppose I just forgot that the 23rd was already here…..

And she’s FIVE. Five.

Sometimes I just can’t believe how we got here….

  1. That is life, our bodies remember, even when we don’t (or try our best not to). I hope you are taking care of yourself and treating yourself well even if you’re a mega bitch to everyone else (something that’s totally acceptable in my book of wisdom.)

    A huge Happy Birthday to Cupcake tomorrow and lots of love sent your way.

      SO true about our bodies remembering….it just baffles me the way that works! I don’t know why it always surprises me too….

      Thanks for the thoughts and love 🙂

      RIGHT??? I remember when we used to talk forever ago about our kids. It’s just crazy. I WISH I had thought to take tomorrow off (we only work a half day anyway, so getting “sick” would be pretty obvious) so that I could be REALLY gentle with myself. Maybe next year…
