I didn’t post a meal plan last week. I had one planned out and even made 3 of the dinners on the meal plan. Unfortunately, my week took a turn of the worst possible kind and I and Tim went into survival mode. That means we made sure the kids were fed and taken care of and picked up from school on time. Nothing else was done, the laundry and dishes piled up, no food was made (other than lunches for Riley) and sleep was elusive. I’ve driven across the city these past 6 days more than I have in probably the past year.
I thankfully had made this weeks meal plan up a long time ago and we are trying to follow it. I’m walking around in a daze and am lost in my head most of the time but since Monday (yes, I know it’s only Tuesday) it’s been going ok. Hopefully this will be the beginning of getting back to normal, whatever that looks like.
I’m completely crushed, lost and unsure of myself. I’ve never really felt like this before. I’ve come close twice before but that was different and easier to take. My children and husband are what have kept me from going over the deep end and sobbing uncontrollably in a corner for days. I have done a great deal of crying but mostly when the boys aren’t around. My little men depend on me to keep their world together and that is what is keeping me together. I’m sure one day I will be able to see out of this sad place and come back to where things are good and happy again. One day, I’m just not there yet.
I hope that each and every one of you had a week that was a thousand times better than the one I had last week. I hope that this week is just as good for you, that is, if you had a fantastic week last week.
Also, don’t worry. 3 of the 4 of us are in perfect health. The 4th (being me) will be physically fine in about another week. Yes, I know. I’m always the broken one.
P.S. If we haven’t talked to you personally don’t worry about it. :)
