Ok, well maybe not nothin… but I spent a good amount of today trying to think of something witty to say and I just couldn’t.
My back is still tender. I had to cut my run short last night. I didn’t workout today, again, because I don’t want to hurt anymore. Yes, I went back to the chiropractor and it’s better, it’s just not “normal” for me. I’ll get there. I’m not as young as I think I am anymore. Bummer.
But, that’s life, right? Sometimes you just have to slow down and look around and not let the speed bumps get you down! That’s exactly what this is. It’s a speed bump. It’s not going to throw me back to my old out-of-shape self, it’s just a small set back. I’m strong. I got this!
My son goes back to school next week. It’s been a struggle for him since elementary school, so this is not a week we look forward to in our home. He’s stressed out, which stresses me out. This year is marginally better because he’s happy to be back at the high school he was forced to leave for several reasons last year, so his friends will be there and that’s good. It will be more academically difficult for him, however, which I’m sure is stressing him out. Thankfully he’s working a lot of hours this weekend. I think that will help keep his mind off it. At least I hope. He has two more years and I know he can do it, but it won’t be easy. Nothing worth having is easy.
So I’m stuck in the middle of wanting to protect my baby (but not so baby) boy, mothering another adult child, being a trucker’s wife and being me. It’s rather exhausting, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I have these three amazing men in my life! What a lucky girl!
Thanks for letting me be real. Life isn’t always easy, and it’s easy to “fake it till you make it”, but I think it’s time we all get real. Life isn’t always easy. The end! But that doesn’t mean it can’t be amazing… we just don’t have to pretend that EVERY day is amazing. Not anymore. That’s life!
And that headband in the picture…. that’s what I tell myself… daily.
