It’s Not All Mary Poppins


March was rough. I was weary for much of it, not really enjoying the job, not really enjoying the children, feeling tired more than motivated. It showed here — or, rather, it didn’t, as I didn’t put in much of an appearance last month. I was too tired to blog, and wasn’t getting much joy out of the children, anyway. Write something entertaining? Oof. Kids being funny? They were just making me tiiiiired.

But I think I’ve turned the corner.

My four-day Easter weekend was exactly what was required. Just the right mix of completed projects, family time, husband time, friend time, and goofing-off time. Lots of hours spent savouring the glorious weather with a book and a cup of tea on the front porch. Lots of time spent walking the dog along the river.

I feel like a new woman. Bring on those babies!

  1. I was wondering what was up. Not like you to be so despondent.

    Glad you’re feeling better. Wasn’t the weather this weekend just heavenly? Just enough sunshine and warmth to recharge those internal batteries without being obnoxiously humid.

  5. I’ve missed your posts. I’m in Vancouver, a mom of two, nearly 5 and nearly 2, and I find your insights on children educational and interesting! Hope spring settles in soon for tou.

  6. Glad to hear you’re doing better. Did you ever get the email I sent you in reply to your inquiries about EC? Apparently I’m having some service provider issues lately and not all my email is reaching it’s destination
