Where have I been ?!
Well for one my internet connection has been extremely sketchy for the last 4 days and so I have hardly been on.
It has actually been a good break, a well needed one.
We had issues to deal with.
House, plumbing, money, love life, parenting.....
It has been a heavy few days to say the least. It seems that every once in a while things just come to a head and one minnute everything is fine and the next nothing is fine.
I chalk a lot of it up to the weather, I HATE winter! The fact that this year has been a cold one has made it worse but I am usually just a little down during the winter to start with.
However this year is tough.....we are trying to rearange, de-clutter and clean up, the process is brutal and involves piles and stacks of mess all over the place waiting for proper storage. I hate this, I cannot function and sit and stare at it thinking I must deal with it so I can do something fun.
Plumbing went Friday night. Dave plunged a face cloth out the tub, but it still won't drain properly and the toilet wont drain. Of course we refuse to pay weekend rates and this being a long weekend we have gone three days with trecks to the basement potty.
In my mind is .....I really want to go to BlogHer and I have to save money.....how can I do this with added expenses.
Oh, ya, the furnace fan went on a weekend too, couldn't wait for that though and paid double! Ouch!
Then Dave's truck went into the shop Saturday morning......$2000.00 later it came out.
Needless to say BlogHer is getting further and further out of my reach. So sad!
Then Dave and I went on a date, to talk.
Seems since haveing kids our relationship has suffered, we just don't go out of the way to do special thing for each other or ....I don't sexify my look, I am a frumpy mommy and well, I need to put more effort into me and him.
There is more, so much more, why does everything crumble in on me at once?!
So the last few nights I have been thinking, journaling and trying to make personal changes.
It is hard!
Anyway....blah, blah...sorry to vent, it just helps to type it out somehow.
We still had fun, even though my head was full of trying ot figure things out we headed out to the cottage to take advantage of the third nice day this winter.
It was amazing out, the perfect winter day! Tons of snow and happy skidooing boys....if all winter days where like this, I would love winter!
Anyway I hope to get this house and my head in order in the next few days, I am dying to get back at my paints and finnish a few half completed projects.
Thanks for bearing with me, I feel like a rollercoaster ride!
