So things have been a little…. well…. flat here lately on the blog.
Have you noticed?
Sure there are still recipes and pictures of my kids…. but the depth has been a little lacking…
it feels …. stagnant??
Truth is… there’s been an abundance of unbloggable things going on in our lives….
nothing major, but the type of things you just don’t rant about on a public place.
I’m all for honesty, but when I feel like airing dirty laundry I know I need to shut the laptop 🙂
So, sorry for the rose colored blog posts.
And now, I will share something that has been rolling around in my brain.
Remember my “Funk” rant a few months back?? Well it seems as if each person in my house is having this need to go through their own funk and, well, that’s a lot of funk to deal with!
We move a lot. And sometimes I feel like we are always getting ready for a move… or unpacking from a move… or anticipating the next move. Treading water, if you will. Eeek. And my husband and I have come to a mutual agreement over the past few months. We’re kinda done. Our wanderlust has waned and we’re looking to put down roots. Are we getting old? But, we’ve got 4.5 years left for him to get retirement… so we’ve gotta stick it out.. and we will. But we have to find a balance to enjoy life in the mean time and not just wish these years away.
Now, I hope this does not come across as whining, because truthfully I am incredibly grateful for my hard working husband and his job. Really, I am. But we’re both feeling this huge shift in our priorities… it’s both alarming and enlightening….
So enough rambling.
Here is my question to you.
Have you ever really felt like an outcast? Like what you wanted was so un-mainstream that most people you talk to just stare blankly back at you? Or perhaps they will flat out ask “Why would you want to do that?”
It’s humorous at best and stifling at worst.
How do you deal with that?
How do you keep from questioning yourself?
How do you remain authentic to yourself?
And another thing….. do any of you suffer from “be responsible” syndrome.
We do. We work too hard and don’t play enough. If I just clean the house, or paint this room, then we could go to the park… or for a walk…. or play in the sprinkler with the kids… I want to play more. ( I think this will help) I want to look at things that need to be done and choose this instead…….
I think every kid should have a hammock.
Thanks for listening (reading).
