Just a few thoughts about spring and upcoming summer!

This past weekend was Easter! It was a great day! It was a simple easy day with baskets, egg hunt in the living room and relaxing until dinner time. We went to Tony’s parents for dinner and the girls definitely enjoyed spending time with their grandparents.

I saw in the newspaper that rummage sales are starting and I am super excited! I absolutely love good rummage sales and hope to hit many this summer.

Today, was in the 60s which is way above what it has been since “spring” has started. I am very thankful because the girls are getting cabin fever from being cooped up all day! I have to admit I am too! We did get to enjoy this morning before the rain hit. We ate lunch out there and played on the porch.

Thinking about summer! I am pumped to get the camper all cleaned and ready to go! Camping season is coming up quickly and I want to make sure we have all that we need done and for it!! My parents were wonderful and got the girls each their own backpacks that have camping “necessities”.

Oh how I love spring and summer! So many great activities! What is your favorite thing to do in spring or summer? I would love some more great ideas!

Struggling Week

Honestly, I have to say being a stay at home mom is the hardest thing I have ever done. I really love being home and able to experience all the milestones. Somedays, like this week- well have been somewhat of a struggle. My brain hurts, I’m tired and feel very overwhelmed. I know many moms who seem to not have this issue and many of my friends probably don’t realize I struggle as often as I do. I have had a few friends say they wish they did crafts and such with their kids like I do. Well let’s be honest: sometimes I don’t. I don’t feel guilty either. Some days are just let’s watch tv all day and do nothing. Not even get out of our pjs. Yes, pjs are a regular attire in this household. Lately, I have been so blah with laundry well I don’t want to add the enormous pile I already have! My house is a disaster and I keep telling myself tomorrow let’s get some energy and then well it doesn’t happen. Here we are a week later, dishes aren’t fully done, laundry is pulling up, tv has been on constantly, my leggings are apart of me and naps are everyday.

The girls have been testing my patience and each other’s. It’s very hard some days they constantly fight. About who got what, she took my toy, I want to sit there. I would rather relax and just let them know they have to figure it out before I get up and start to separate them. Not sure if it’s the best idea but hopefully they learn that being nice to each other the day goes by much smoother!

Well, now I have rambled on. Let’s just say I am right there with you. You are not alone! Motherhood is hard. It is rough and sown times I think brings out the worst in some. I wouldn’t change it for the world. They make my life complete.

Though I do wish I could afford a cleaning lady! Just saying!
