The vacation is on and has been, predictably, rife with challenges: poor planning on my part (typical), expensive…but so worth it! Fun. Was amazing, as always. At one point, Nate pointed at my little guy on his daddy’s shoulders, & sang to us. I told aspiehubby to keep the nut ward on speed dial, as I was having “My Morning Straightjacket” moment! When my big guy got overstimulated & started to melt down, we were able to walk to the spring & pretend to be hobbits for a while. Best of both worlds!
I’ve been thinking about something my mother said when she objected so strongly: “Do you think the medications you’re on are making you think you can do things you can’t?” It’s becoming abundantly clear that, medication or no, I’m only now realizing what I can do! She had me convinced that I just couldn’t do anything (right), so I basically stayed home for a decade. This is somehow my hubby’s fault because “he drags (me) down”. Huh? News flash: my problems predated my relationship with a person who happens to share many of the same problems.
Counting my blessings. So grateful we are finding the strength to cope & live life again! Hoping she can do the same.
