just me

I don’t know about you, but growing up in the 80′s netted some really cool trends. I had the big hair, the jelly bands, the jelly shoes, Hammer pants, black patent leather shoes, Michael Jackson gear, Madonna gloves, sunglasses that look like mini blinds and more. But nothing — and I mean NOTHING compares with that delicious Fiestada pizza that they used to serve at lunch –only on Wednesdays. Can I get an amen there?

Have you ever noticed that when mom gets sick the whole house falls apart? I really caught it yesterday when I woke up at 3 am with serious stomach pains. I thought I had eaten something that maybe didn’t agree with me, or that I had gotten food poisoning, but after a few hours and I started running a fever I realized that I was down with the stomach bug.

Isn’t it amazing how our whole houses fall apart when us moms get sick?

I am in the middle of reading a romance novel right now about a woman who designs wedding dresses in secret because she works as a seamstress for a famous wedding gown designer. She doesn’t want him to find out because she is fearful of how he will react and she thinks she needs this job to survive.

and that is where I am at today.

Today I sit here at my computer and I just realize how hectic life has gotten for me. It is something that I never thought I would allow to happen, but it has.  When life gets like this, all I can dream of doing is taking a step back.

Because of the hecticness of this lifestyle I am living, I crave for just drawing back and doing nothing — no social media, no computers, no television. Just me, my family, and the things I love to do  like reading, crocheting, and cooking.

Today’s Prompt: In Between

Today, I am in between breaths. I am finding it hard to breathe again. Every single time I think I know what I want to do with my life, things suck me back and I feel stuck again.

Have you ever watched a baby bird who is just getting its feathers and almost ready to take that big leap in the air, but not really sure? He teeters on the branch raising one leg and then the other. He makes himself stand tall as he flaps his wings checking out to see if they are really going to work or not. He stands there unsure of himself, thinking — “maybe I should, but then again, maybe I shouldn’t. The next thing you know, Momma Bird has come along and shoved Baby bird right out of the nest.
