I find it so odd that there are days that I can sail through without speaking to a single friend. To balance those days out, I find myself finally finding the opportunity to call and catch up with quite a few people. I wish I could find time to reconnect with everyone I need to. This has always been the struggle I have faced. I am not good at keeping in touch over the phone. I am a person of the moment, so unless there are no other distractions, I find it very difficult to talk to people on the phone. I think I just feel worse if I can’t concentrate on the phone conversation because I have too many distractions with the kids and other things going on. Well, today I made the time while my youngest was napping to call on the ladies that have been there for me since my son was born and became part of our family. I was able to call and talk to them. It was just for a few minutes, but it was wonderful just to chat and hear their voices and reconnect. I guess I have been feeling a little more lonely lately. I spent this weekend hanging out with friends, but I am beginning to realize how much I am missing the physical companionship I have with my husband. Yes I get to talk to him every day, but half the time it is between breaking up arguments behind children, eating breakfast, and getting both of the younger ones ready to take my son to school. I miss that quality time of being able to really give each other attention without distraction, to talk without interruption, and to just be with each other. In some ways, I guess I am trying to replace some of that with friends. I know that it is not the same, but it is a way to feel less lonely.
My Uncle Jim also messaged me today to see if I could talk. I gave him and my aunt a call tonight and we were able to catch up as well. It was wonderful to be able to reconnect and talk.
I brought my son to the dentist today, and he has some exposed nerves on his molars, so he is going to need some work, but it is not as bad as I thought it was going to be cost wise. The good thing is once everything gets taken care of, it should prevent his adult teeth from having the same problems.
I got to take my youngest to Jumpers Jungle today. She had fun running around. There were only 3 other people there today, so she made a friend and they were running and jumping in every bouncy house there. She was worn out today.
The schedule today did not allow me to get in exercise, but I’ll shoot for that again tomorrow. My goal tonight will be to try to get a little extra sleep. I’m hoping I can get my brain to shut down when I lay down. Pleasant dreams everyone! I hope that you can find your 3 positive things every day. If you ever feel inclined, I’d love to hear how you all are doing.
