So many people ask me how I'm doing these days. My answer is either ...'I'm ok' or 'I'm managing'. I don't have a choice but to be one of those. I'm determined to make a life for my kids. I don't want them to grow up saying they lost both parents in 2014. They won't lose me...I'm still pretty much the same Mom to them. Granted - I'm far more stressed - about completely different things than before and I'm far less happy. I'm here though and I'm striving to give them all the opportunities that I can.
I have been seeing a therapist, but honestly not sure how much longer I will do that. She wants me to make time for me and says I need to get a life. I wasn't able to make time for me while Dave was here - I certainly don't have time for me now. I have longed for that for many years -it just is not a possibility. I do want to get back in to working out again - but I haven't even had time for that. I did get to run twice last week, but every day this week has been crazy. I did get a walk in last night. I don't see any light until maybe the last week in August. Then the kids will be back in school the following week and I just don't know what that is going to look like. Work will be really busy and I'll have meetings that I'm supposed to attend in all areas.
I couldn't imagine if my kids were both in a bunch of activities! I need to get Keagan in to something. I've just been trying to figure out what that will be. I think it might be a dance class - that is his favorite thing to do - a hip hop class possibly. Not too dangerous and not a huge commitment at this point. It will likely be that or gymnastics. He'd do great at both. In the spring we may do baseball or something - but I feel there is too much sitting around for him in most of the sports.
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
