I wrote this post over a week ago and completely forgot to post it. In lieu of much activity I thought I’d still post it here for you. I have so much more. One thing I’ll tell you is that I’ve been holding back posts for a couple of reasons. The next post I talk more about it but one big thing is I’ve been holding back on blog posts because of the background work, photos, background tags and SEO of which I still am completely lost. I just want to write and spill all the beans. If I don’t want to post photos I’m hoping you’ll just take a look at Instagram or Facebook and put it all together. If you’re not watching stories you missed a great opportunity to see me cry and want to kick a goose. Last week it was a clown. Who knows what’s next week?!!!! So here is the Monday mail from a week or two ago. I’ll work on this week’s and maybe we’ll get back on track to Monday’s and Thursday’s. Honestly don’t hold your breath until school is in. These kids…. ohhh these kids!!! Next post. Lol.
Sometime a short while ago….
Things here are starting to smooth out, I say in hopes that it will actually begin to be the case, lol. We’ve been in the #withlovelakehouse for less than 2 months now. Wow, that’s so crazy to think, I feel like we just got here and that we’ve also been here forever. Rooms are starting to come together. Shipping has been my biggest aggravation with that, sure you may have a sofa in 3-4 weeks, but just to the warehouse in Toronto. Those poeple won’t ship it for at least another 5 weeks. Imagine my face. I mean, really imagine it. It is so squished up, lips pursed, crankety! Anyway, let’s skip the house stuff for a second and talk about the hot mess mama bits.
The move has gone better than last years move to Toronto, I think. Although it’s hard to tell during summer. I do know my kids are city kids. All this land to play with, they could fish and catch frogs, we can light things on fire (that’s a together activity, my brother once lit our garbage bags on fire. I don’t remember the specifics but I do remember he was innnn trrrouble!!!). Not my kids, nope nope nope, they tell me, ‘That’s not safe Mommy.’ Ugggg, it’s like pulling teeth here smalls, could we not just light some shit on fire!!! What’s a mom got to do?!
As for me, I feel a little anxious, like Ativan anxious. I’ve got that mom burden of trying to make everyone happy and to make up for whatever they feel they’ve lost in the move. It’s unrealistic I know, but that doesn’t change the feelings. It’s a work in progress, I hope starting school won’t be the same disaster as last year.
