C'est La Vie

Life is hard. My life is hard. Hard Hard Hard. I complain a lot. A lot. I complain because the way I complain usually makes people laugh. If I can make people laugh about it then I can usually laugh about it. Then it feels more like a sitcom than a stuggle. I really don't have that much to complain about. We bought a house (we're trying to figure out if we can still afford our decision, but those are just details right?). I have food, and clothes and a job. I even have a few friends up here (I don't see them outside of work but again, details. Right?). It's not a huge deal, I just don't feel like laughing today. I'm tired. So tired my eyelashes hurt.
Yesterday was a bad day. A really, really bad day. If I told you how bad it was you would laugh. I told a few people and they laughed, so I laughed. I can be pretty funny sometimes. Anyway, wish me luck tomorrow. I'm going to bed. Maybe I'll luck out and wake up at work all dressed and ready to go. It's nice to be at work and feel like a real person for a while.

Here's a few pics to end on a happy note. :0)

Matching MoMo jammies. Thank you, Nana!

One of Owen's favorite passtimes.

Oh, and Happy New Year, everyone!

Girl, for what it's worth ... your life looks hard, sounds hard, and it's probably pretty darn hard. I admire you though! You inspire me! And in 10 years, when the hard parts are pretty much over and all you have to worry about is teenagers ... then, I bet your life will be pretty funny. And hard. You're doing great! Hugs!!!

It looks hard. But adorable. Little kids, little problems, big kids, big problems! You can sleep when you are old. Dying over that cute tiny baby with Arial!

Consider this all material for the book you will write one day about parenting that is going to make the world laugh...and then maybe we can all stop crying when we have those bad days :)

I am positive that some day we'll look back on these days and miss them - I really think we will. I tell myself this and try to enjoy the craziness and laugh about it because I think I'll be so lonely and miss my little ones when they're big and self-sufficient ;) Hang in there!

Hope you guys had a good Christmas!
