A lot of going through the motions lately. When I’m not sure what to do next, I always have a step in my daily routine to mark off the list. I’ve been trying to be good to myself, to keep the stress at bay. This painful kink in my shoulder just won’t go away, in spite of the one acupuncture/massage appointment, stretches, a week of hot baths, and wearing the hot bean-bag thingy. It’s especially painful trying to sleep and when I first get up in the morning. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s 50% stress induced: I’ve been running on adrenaline—I need to step back and take more deep breaths. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
As of today, all three kids have now joined us, and even though it will be bumpy at times, I’m so glad they’re here.
