Mama guilt, sports cream and pain

I'm gonna post this really quick. I worked all weekend. My body hurts sooo bad that all I can do is rub tons of Bengay on my back, neck and shoulders and bandage my blistered toes. I am so not used to working like this anymore. I know it's gonna take a while to get re-adjusted.

The other thing is the mama guilt. Since hubs works 6 days a week his only off day is Sunday. Which means Saturdays my aunt has the kids. I got home Saturday night around 10 and got 3 different phone calls (one from each kid) crying and telling me how much they miss me and that they don't want me working. The boy really got my heart with his comments. "I just miss you so much mommy. I don't like being away from my mama. I just want to be near you." Oh my lord it stabbed my heart. 

It was a rough weekend. I'm so tired and the poor house. Well.... There really aren't any words. I'm just doing the best I can and trying to take this change one day at a time. 

Here's a couple pics. Makayla finished  an awesome project while at my aunts house this weekend. Macie looked so cute this morning and I told her I wanted a pic. While snapping she got a major nose itch and started making weird facial expressions and moving her hands around so she wouldn't scratch it yet. Hilarious. 


  1. Hang in there. We are also adjusting in our home, I am heading back to school and volunteering full time. It has been a major adjustment in our home. I have set up chore charts, gone back to menu planning and made a ton of freezer meals

  2. Big adjustments for all! Hang in there, it will get better!!!!
