I'm a full-time working mom of 3, grandmother to 2. I have one child left at home, the older two are married, each with a daughter. Like any working mom, I struggle to find a balance between work, family, friends, etc.
So Wednesday was not ideal as far as staying on track with the goals, but life gets in the way of things so you must roll with the punches & not stress out about it right? I came home last night & had to park on the street because our driveway was blocked with vehicles of the guys working on our house. My yard was strewn with old windows, screens, etc., my house torn up on the inside with piles of discarded materials everywhere. I walked in, grabbed a cocktail & sat out on the deck with M and discussed the days events. B had spacers put in at the orthodontist and M stayed home to take her & deal with the window guys. Dinner was late....like 8 p.m. late and B sat with us & chatted about her day so while things didn't go as they had the past few nights, we still took time to focus on and listen to each other. Hurray for the small victories right?
