Pretty Near Perfect!

So I had yet another surgery in May... this time on my knee. I feel like the past 14 months has been a blur of surgeries and trying to recover from it. But anyways since May I really haven't felt on top of life. There is always laundry, messes, drudgery -etc. So when I saw this on littlemissmomma - I felt like I had so share- Sometimes (most times) I can't articulate what I want to say...and this was perfect!

Sometimes I have one of those days where its harder to get things done.
My mind wanders, I'm not as effective, I forget why I walked into the room.
And then, sometimes one of those days turns into one of those weeks.
Like this week.

As hard as I tried, everything I did seemed to take 3 times longer than it should have.
I used to get down on myself when I had days like these.
But after two years of motherhood, I've learned that this is just part of the territory.
Not only with motherhood, but with life.
Sometimes life takes longer, sometimes we're not at out best, sometimes we only write two blog posts in a week, and sometimes we don't brush our hair.
And you know what?
I think that's okay.

Washington DC with Family

My little niece Kennedy came to visit for a month in June and we had so much fun together. We went to Georgetown Cupcakes, we toured the Capital - when to Great Falls, the Washington Monument, the white house- the Lincoln Memorial and Mt. Vernon! We got to do so much! We miss her like crazy already and hope that she will come back next year.
