I have been a little down lately, wishing things were different. I wish we had a finished house, that Baines had her own room, that we have enough money (to do the previous), that I didn’t have to leave B everyday to work, and that the house would clean itself. It’s really easy to start feeling this way when I get overwhelmed. I have to keep telling myself to stay positive, that these things are just temporary. I need to remember how lucky I really am, I have a roof over my head, a warm bed, a beautiful baby and a husband that loves us unconditionally. Nicholas has put in so many hours to build us a beautiful home. I know I don’t show my appreciation enough. He is working so hard to make our dream come true. On top of that he is an extremely helpful husband. I’ve had a hard time balancing my time with B and the housework. He has really stepped up and covered where I couldn’t.
I’ve been repeating in my head “At least I have a roof over my head” and yesterday, Nicholas and his father finished hanging the joists for the addition. So my roof is getting bigger. :-)
