A Thanksgiving Break
Once again, ladies and gentlemen, life is happening.
My husband, the boys and I have three Thanksgiving dinners to go to this coming week and I don't want to stress myself out over the blog. My house is still a wreck and I am still very ill (I'll be going to the doctor again during this hiatus). Today and tomorrow will be spent preparing our home for overnight visitors (my nieces - hooray!), and while I may be completing some of the daily tasks over the next week or so, I will not be blogging about them until after Thanksgiving. I'm still not sure how this is going to pan out. I may return with a blog about everything I've done during the break, or I may hold off on the tasks and resume the journey after the holiday madness has ended. We'll just have to see what happens.
I'm not quitting. I'm just doing the best I can with the time I've got. I'm not neglecting myself or the journey, I'm just enjoying my favorite holiday with my loving family by my side. I think one of the best ways a woman can nurture herself is to spend time just being with her family and her friends (provided the family and friends are healthy people to be around, which in this case, they definitely are).
Yes, I realize this is meant to be a 30-day journey and I'm dragging it out like nobody's business. I also realize that I am merely a human being and a busy stay-at-home mom who has a lot on her plate... and I am about as real as they come. I always do my best to be genuine. The transparency of this whole process has brought us to this Thanksgiving break. Remember, enough is enough.
So until next time... Happy Thanksgiving and happy healing!
