This past year has been really busy for me and my husband in many different ways. We now have two children and our baby is turning into a very active toddler. The preschooler/toddler combination along with my husband’s sometimes 12 hour days, has left my head spinning in so many different directions it’s hard to keep the endurance at times. As a SAHM for now three years, I have been through busy times before. After a while I do seem to land on my feet and grow a bit stronger from all life throws my way, but still, how do you recharge amidst the waves?
This time of year is really busy for my husband so recently I’ve been alone full-time with my daughters. Though we both realize we are in a storm of busy-ness at the moment, it doesn’t make the days any shorter or less exhausting for both of us. The past few weeks I’ve found my energy reserves really low and generally am just feeling worn out. Instead of focusing on what is not great at present, I am trying to recharge the best I can and hang in there until we get to calmer waters.
1. trying to workout more...naptimes and jogging with the girls in the double jogger. As it begins to cool down I am getting back to jogging in the mornings and pilates videos to keep my energy up.
