I remember it all so well…one year ago today, I was laying in a hospital room bed, listening to my iPod and anxiously awaiting his arrival…I was unsure of how I would deliver, of what to expect, and most of all, how my life would be forever changed…. Continue reading
First let me apologize for my absence. With work overwhelming, the end of one terms of classes (straight As by the way), and the start of the other. Did I mention my husband is still in the hospital and I’m still flying solo doing the mommy thang? Yep, that’s been my 2013 so far.
As for my personal challenge to reduce my social media use…I have failed. Miserably. For the first few days I struggled. When I would open Facebook mindlessly, I would have to consciously remember to close it out. I think it did help, especially at work. But I also think I am the master at finding another distraction when another one is unavailable. Finally, I gave in. I don’t police myself anymore and I’m a little disappointed I gave up the challenge so easily. Maybe I needed to make my goal more manageable? IDK, seemed pretty straight-forward to me. Maybe I’m just weak. I think that is the more likely of the two. Such is life…
Two more days son turns one year old. This is a bitter sweet milestone for me. I can’t believe we have made it a year. It’s been magical and trying but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I look back at some many things starting with my pregnancy to having him and it makes me well up. And then I think of all the wonderful things to come. That makes me smile. This year will be especially tough because my husband won’t even be able our son’s first birthday party because he is still in the hospital. It can’t be avoided so we’ll just have to to do FaceTime, take video, and lots of pictures.
In the meantime, this mama is just trying to keep all the balls I am juggling in the air. Can’t let anything drop!
