About the I

I am a single mom, working full time, recovering from trauma, raising children who are traumatized and getting better. I often have culture shock and a sick dependence on caffeine. I forget things, frequently.

I feel alone. With kids. It’s exhausting. It’s intoxicating. It is unimaginable.

I have to kick free and keep moving forward.

I have to kick myself and get going.

I have to get some more coffee.

    writing helps. live fuller and less vulnerable. peace

  2. I completely understand you and feel for you my dear. I have two boys and a husband and feel utterly alone. I have a daycare at my house so on a normal day I have eight kids at my house, always noisy, always chaotic. I get pulled in so many directions I feel like my only purpose is to serve others. I am exhausted. Know that you are not alone. Keep writing it does help to get the frustration out. Plus there are others out there that spur you on. Have a great day and try drinking tea. Ha

  3. I just wanted you know that you’re not alone and I’m sorry that you’ve been there.

  5. I nominated you for the one lovely blog award, you can check it out here http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/one-lovely-blog-award/

    • Aww… so sweet of you to nominate me! I thank you, so much. I am, though, award free, because of time conflicts. I am so glad to see you get an award, you deserve it! I would have more babies, too, but I haven’t time, so I just swoon over the babies of others. They make me tear up, seriously, I make a fool of myself. Ahhh, babies. Sigh.
