Tough Days.

We all have days where we just feel like we are hanging by a string. I didn't get much sleep last night. I was probably my fault. I drank coffee too close to bedtime. I watched 19 Kids and Counting till Gasp 10 pm! Then I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep and just as I was drifting off the baby woke up. Our 1 year old doesn't sleep through the night. It is what it is. We are not doing any kind of sleep training right now. Feeding her usually settles her right back down. Sometimes I have a hard time falling asleep though after I get back down. Needless to say today has been a tough day. There are going to be tough days as a mom. I am three years into this gig and I learned that pretty quickly. I had help the past couple of days between the holiday weekend and my oldest getting sick. Thank God for husband. You might ask what the point of this post is. Its not to be negative or bash being a mom. Its simply to say that whether or not your sahm or work full time its ok to have a tough day. I read this once and really liked it. Its a bad day , Not a bad life. Words of wisdom. I also like this one "Not everyday is Good but there is something good in Everyday!" Amen to that. I don't think there are truer words. I love being a mom. Even on the tough days. I find something to make me smile. Its usually my girls. Even when we are all having "One of those days" I look at them and smile because even the worst day with them is better just because they are here with me :-)

Good Bye Facebook!

Yesterday I took the plunge. I suspended my facebook account. I was spending far to much time on fb. Its consuming my every waking moment. My breaks from other household duties would include logging onto facebook. I was wound tightly enough and then seeing something on fb would just push me a little more over the edge it wasn't pretty. At first I thought maybe I just remove some of the people from my friends list that I didn't regularly communicate with then I woke up yesterday morning and decided that FB was getting in the way of more important things. Primarily my relationship with God and also my relationship with Chris and my kiddos. I want to be present as a wife and a mother. Spending so much time on fb was making that very difficult. I decided it was time for a change. So I decided no more facebook right now. For now I will communicate via text, E-mail and phone calls... PHONE CALLS are actually the closet thing we get to a face to face meeting in todays society. Its pretty sad. I have also decided that I will make use of the beautiful camera that Chris got me for my 30th Birthday and take lots of pictures of the girls. High qaulity pictures which I will print out so we have them for years to come. I am working on becoming more intentional in my life. Actually thinking hard about how I spend my time. Time is precious. I figure even if I blog weekly that is progress. So right now I am seeing how this goes. Day 1 was actually pretty good. I spent time reading the bible. Cleaning the house. Talking to my mom on the phone and playing with the girls. Stay tuned for more posts and updates on everything going in the Moeck household :-)
