If you read my Friday post, you know that work is getting worse and worse BUT I am trying to be super positive. I was thinking this morning on my way in – after having to leave my two boys semi-sick at home – about that phrase people like to say: “God doesn’t throw any more at you than you can handle.” While that is a little reassuring, it’s also rough when you think, ‘This is pretty damn hard; he thinks I got this?’
I mean, I want to quit my job, I’ve got two sick kids, a husband out of town, and m favorite wrestler retired. Come on, world, what gives?
I guess in the grand scheme of things, I’ve had it pretty easy for a while. And by that I mean, things are relatively stable. I set my life up for that exact thing. Sure, crazy things happen here but nothing I can’t fix or at least abate. So if things become a little mixed up from time to time, I know I can handle it. It just always feels like such turmoil when you’re going through it.
But my weekend was really nice in terms of forgetting about all this trash. Friday night we just hung out. On Saturday, Ash and I got some things done in the yard and in our garage. We went to lunch and in the afternoon, Elliot went to a friend’s house. I got to sit out in the sun for a while and I really needed that relaxation. Plus, sitting in the sun helps me to recharge. Sunday was a lot more relaxing: egg hunt for the kids in the am in our yard, some candy, then general fun. We went to the playground and rode scooters/bikes around the paths too. The boys hung out with friends and we rested. I made spaghetti and though some of my family didn’t feel well (and don’t today) it was still very nice.
Man, I usually love a freebie week but I have to tell you that since all this work strife, I haven’t been able to sink myself into any music lately. It sucks because I love it too. Anyway, I think I will share a couple songs that just came to mind. Subvision was Tobias Forge’s band before Ghost. It’s way different than Ghost but kind of fun.
Here’s a guy who plays guitar for a band called The Haunted and this is his new solo stuff. Sometimes I appreciate instrumental.s
