this roller coaster we call our life.

I am giving up part of my nap time to pluck out some words for this neglected blog of mine. 

I am in survival mode. Sometimes I can live day by day, but mostly I do better to think about my life moment to moment. It can be a little overwhelming to think of everything that needs to be done in an entire day. 

It has been 8 weeks since Paul had his accident. 
It has been 1 hour since I had to blow my nose.
I have zero desire to celebrate Valentine's day.
It has been 3 days since I waited on hold again with Health Care dot gov.

It has been 2 weeks since the Dr told us that he could expect a 16 week recovery, not a 12.
It has been 12 days since I decided to put Sabrina in a toddler bed.
I have 4 days until the weekend. 
It has been 4 days since I had to take the kids to the babysitter, and
I love being home with them.
It has been 10 minutes since I had my last Coke.
It has been 30 days since we had to let Cooper go to another loving family.
I have taken 5 pictures on my real camera the entire month of February.
It took me 5 days to get to 50 on Flappy Bird.
It has been 9 days since my last GNO, and I am in need of another one.

My house was clean, and took all of 20 minutes for it to look wrecked.
It has been 2 weeks since our friend decided to take on the challenge of our children for all of our babysitting needs.
There was a stretch of 3 nights that Sabrina slept through the night.
It has been 45 minutes since my kids fell asleep, and I need to wrap up this post.               
It has been 30ish days since my last blog post, and I miss this. I do.

I'm trying to think of a clever comment using a number to go along with your awesome post but I can't. Just know that you are freaking awesome.

I want to write something supportive, loving, compassionate...all that. But I got nothin good. I am lame. But you are wonderful and doing a great job! You are doing better than you think.

You are #1! Remember Astro Burger? That was my last GNO. Way more than 9 days ago.

I, too, am in survival mode. But, I know I couldn't physically do what you are doing so I want you to know that I am 100% impressed with you. I echo the words of Lady of Perpetual Chaos, I am sure you are doing much better than you think or give yourself credit for. Just know that people you haven't even seen for a long time (like me) are looking on in amazement and sending love across the miles.

It has been far too long since your last Diet Coke. That is all.
