I just need to catch my breath

Being a type A … this last semester has challenged me on every level. I am learning that there is nothing wrong with saying no and accepting good enough instead of killing myself for perfection…. Maybe this means I am growing up.

This last 3 months has been a whirlwind of;

Every cold and version of the flue a small child could bring home from school.

Two new doctors and a myriad of “trial and error “ treatments for my husband who has recently been diagnosed with late onset type one diabetes and hashimotos syndrome.

Holidays and school snack days and programs.

My oldest struggling to find a balance and piece in the world of being the height of an 8 year old, having the vocabulary and wit of a 12 year old… but the heart and emotions of the beautifully unique five year old that she is.

My youngest who underwent surgery for an upper lip connection, liberating her speech and leaving us in awe of her rapid speech development.

A bout of parasytic worms, a very unwelcome seuvanear from my birthday trip to the Bahamas ( the one topic I wont be sharing any unfiltered satirical insight on!)

All the while I foolishly attempted to tackle 3 core Graduate courses and started this blog as an outlet, to remind myself of the things that are important… lol, and then it took of (I am not complaining!<3 ).

So, as summer draws near and the sunshine calls me out to play with my babies…

I have decided, good enough is okay! I could pull of yet another meaningless 4.o, if I dig in and pull a couple more all-nighters, inevitably leaving me grumpy and exhausted for my family OR I can Play in the sun with my babies, eat dinner at the table with the family and do “enough” work before shutting down the laptop and catch up with my husband before bed… and getting a 3.5 gpa (my best guess at this point) is good enough!

 

And I am sure my last two posts are littered with grammatical errors… but for tonight this will have to be good enough.
