They Are Off to the Zoo

My family just rolled out of the driveway, leaving me behind. I kicked them out so that I can work today in some peace and quiet, but now I’m sad that they are going to the zoo without me! I missed their last trip to the zoo for the same reason–work. I miss having boundaries in my life that designate work, family, and maybe even some me time. My world is all mixed up and intertwined, and although that is how I have set it up, sometimes it is hard.

A momentary lament. Forgive me.

    Laments are allowed! You get to feel feelings. The balance is the hardest thing to figure out for most if not all moms. The good news is you get to choose what works best for you!

    Dude. You are allowed to lament! Even if it’s the result of the life you chose for yourself. Sometimes you have to choose between conflicting desires and it sucks.
