The Not So Quiet Quiet

Lately, I’ve been quiet around here and on social media in general.

Somedays I feel like I have a lot to share….and other days I simply don’t.

It’s those times when I’m quiet that, ironically, I have a lot to say or want to share, but the time in this season of my life doesn’t always allow for it to happen.

The past few weeks have been filled with illness and crazy schedules. 4 out of 6 of us have been battling colds or strep or respiratory icky-ness.

And 2 of those 4 have been the babies. And these TWO babies sick and ONE mama days have left me completely exhausted and falling into bed by 9pm, hoping to get an hour or two before one or the other baby awakes.

Then theres the lovely thunder storms at night this week. And I do mean lovely….we LOVE getting the rain. We need it. I love hearing it outside pouring down…..
But my sweet Sunshine girl does not. She is terrified of it. I wish I could say it was a normal type of fear, but it’s not. It’s a will-wake-the-entire-house {and the finally sleeping restfully babies} up and NOOOOO. We cannot have that.
So off I go to the kitchen to pour some coffee and sit with her a bit. The cat joins me and I try my best to keep my eyes propped open as she tells me “I don’t like the rain mama. It scares me. It’s loud and scary”. She tells me this no less than 10 times in a 5 minute time frame….

Finally she is settled, and I meander through the hallway, trying not to trip over the still unpacked boxes from our {sorta} recent move, and find my way to my bed.

Just in time to hear another loud clap of thunder……

So. It’s been quiet on here and on social media. But, my life has been anything but. I have so much to share….and hopefully in the few quiet moments here and there, I will get some of my thoughts typed out. Maybe.

If not, have another cup of coffee for me….I’ll need it.
