About Pregnancy BEFORE It Happened…
You will become an entirely different being when you are in labor because childbirth is NOT pretty.
Some Days You Can’t Do It All…
This week has been nuts. My husband has been working late nights more often than usual and some days I feel like a single parent. That makes my to-do list long and the hours short. Me time seldom happens. The other night I was finally looking forward to having a chance to sit down and watch a movie before Mike came home. But the baby was up until 1 am, NOT sleeping. Needless to say I did not get to watch my movie, or much done off of my checklist. By the time we got to tonight (Sunday) I still did not have a cartoon ready to post. I just wasn’t feeling funny. I didn’t feel like finding the humor in my crazy life. I had a tightness in my chest. And I was just plain tired. All I could think of was this old cartoon from another stressful day.
Some people yell, some punch thing, some cry, some take a long drive or a walk, some people write down their stresses on paper, some eat or treat themselves to something new. And while I do love me a bubble bath and chocolate, I especially love that art and cartooning are my stress relievers. Because I can feel like this and just drawing it and putting it on paper lifts the burden, sometimes permanently. And it’s real, y’all. I can be real, and share it with you in a cartoon and hopefully encourage you in your own stressors and crazy lives. You may feel like this on the inside today too. So know that you’re not the only one and that we all need to get it out and sometimes we need to let things go. Some days you just can’t do it all.
