i have been quiet in this space for a mix of reasons.
all of the good things that the holidays bring.
work being a little bit crazy as i tackle everything normally on my plate as well as getting a plan in place for coverage when i am out.
finding it hard to hold on to time as it feels like it is racing by.
going to try and slow it down a bit over the next couple of days.
but the good has been good. time with family. laughter. eating some favorite holiday treats. maybe a cider and maybe a glass of wine. talking to santa, telling him her wishes. wrapping gifts. checking out christmas lights. making plans for fun to celebrate the holidays. all of the good things that the holidays bring.
in between all of the good, there are the stresses with work, the discussions about disability leave, leave without pay, insurance, what i do and what i don't qualify for, discussions with our girl that no parents should have to have about what will happen next in our lives.
so there is the typical balance of the shit and the joy.
but i am going to do my best to focus on the joy and have it outweigh the shit. because the rest will come regardless, and it will take more than its fair share of time when it does.
i hope that this week brings you some magic of your own. xo
