About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

the new normal

I keep waiting for life to get back to normal.

Newsflash: It's not going to happen. Because this is my new normal.

My new normal is not having enough time for anything, is no more sleeping in or staying up late, is no more quick runs to the store, is no more watching a movie from beginning to end without interruptions.

It is hard to get used to this. Definitely harder than I thought. But all new things are at first. Until one day, who knows how long from now, one day things will seem...normal.

  1. I know how you feel. Although I don't really remember the old normal anymore. So I suppose I'm used to the new one now. Sometimes Chris and I talk about what things were like before we had kids, and I can't really remember... :-P

    It's hard though, I'm totally with you on that. Although when I'm having a bad day and I sit and think about what my life would be like if I didn't have any kids right now, the first thing that pops into my head is the fact that I know, more than anything, that I would want kids SO bad. So then I remind myself that the bad days are nothing compared to the good days and the precious moments I wouldn't trade for anything :-)
