🐊🐊🐊 sunset.

The suns up. And we have our morning fuel. I haven't seen a bug yet. So I think things are going a bit better. Just grabbed a coffee. And heading to the closest place to buy a grill- because #fireban.

We decided to spend this 3-day weekend camping. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ In the middle of no where. We forgot the air mattress- which is no biggy because we've never camped with one before. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈBut then we realized we forgot the stakes for the tent. So @hnic_craig whittled some from sticks. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ There's a fire ban. So no fire. I mean. Is it camping if there is no fire?πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Stone had a spider crawling on him. And ran to me like I'm going to help?! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ And some sort of ancient species of beetle flew onto my shoulder and I wanted to die right then. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Did I mention the FL bugs?! And the fact that the closest anything is 30 mins away. The cop said "its rough- but it's safe. You're just in the country" πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ And my mom is currently running around because something is in the back of her shirt. πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I think we'll just pack up and get a hotel in Miami tomorrow. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈBut. It's beautiful. And peaceful. And there are so many stars... so maybe we'll stay.

Today marks the 3rd week in a row that Adelyn missed ballet because I can't muster up the energy to leave the house. Not that I'm tired. Because I'm not. I can't really put into words what it is. Social anxiety seems a bit too heavy. Laziness seems a bit too much. Maybe it's a mix. Some days are better. But most days there seems to always be an excuse as to why I can't leave the house. Dishes. Or laundry. Or emails. They're all excuses. So behind the beach photos and the funny kid sayings. Behind the smile and positivity. Is someone who's broken and trying to pick up the pieces that somehow, somewhere, shattered along the way. So today marks no more excuses. No more missed classes. And facing this life consuming fear head on. Because if there's anything I DONT want to do as a parent, projecting my own issues onto my littles is at the top of the list.

It's like Christmas!!! Only there's a 3rd box missing and it isn't suppose to deliver until tomorrow. So I guess it's more like Christmas Eve. 😍😭

"Ok. Chapter 1- is for the bricks and windows dad.... What exactly are you doing? Dad. It's looking all wrong. That's looking weird. It needs to have nice windows. Oh and dad. You forgot the sign. And we need swings. " - #AbelCash on helping Dad build the playhouse.

He named all the fish. And then got a little emotional about all the dead bug specimens. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ #libraryhangs

Monday mornings are for emails and planning the week. And coffee. All. The. Coffee.

Happiness is....

I'm determined to get a strong hold on all the crap we've accumulated! Especially the toys. We've simplified before, you have to living in 500 sq ft- it requires minimal stuff. Since we tripled the square footage, it seems the 'stuff' has tripled too. Out with it all!! // and some Frankincense to calm those emotional attachments.

Hello, Monday. πŸ’•

I told Craig I wanted a playset for Mothers Day so I can send the kids outside. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ #parentingwinorfail
