This past week, I have felt myself falling so far behind – behind on my blog, behind on sleep, behind on my reading, behind on my social life and the list goes on. I have been trying to do so many things and throw myself into so much. My husband loves to stay busy. He thrives off of having “stuff” to do. I’m just not wired that way. I don’t mind staying home all day cleaning up and playing with the kids. I don’t feel like I have to be on the go all the time. In fact, when I do stay really busy for a period of time, I start to get really stressed out and tend to check out completely.
Luckily, this time I caught myself. I have felt like my head is spinning trying to keep up with my family and our daily to-dos and running on very little sleep right now is not helping at all. I haven’t been as patient, I’ve steered clear of messy situations instead of making myself available to help and I did not even exercise at all last week. It’s just not me. So, maybe I feel like by writing this out for all to see, I will be held accountable. Maybe I’m hoping this will wake me up or my sister will call me and give me a love pat and tell me to just relax for a day or two and turn it all off.
Our 4th anniversary is tomorrow! In some ways, I feel like we have been married much longer than that. Two kids will do that to you. Other days, it feels like we just started dating. It’s amazing how fast time flies and I really can’t believe we have accomplished so much in so little time. It has taken a lot of patience and a lot of hard work, but we are finally in a place where we feel totally content. For that, I am so thankful. Our home is full of love and the good Lord knows, I have needed that lately.
Ryan has seen that I needed to slow up and take a break for a little while now. Because he is awesome, he is taking me to Birmingham this weekend to celebrate our anniversary and my in-laws are even keeping our babies for us! I am beyond excited to have a little fun and spend some alone time with my hubby!
I’ll be documenting on Snapchat username: LoganCan and Instagram @logan_can!
