I'm back. I want to be back.
.
.
I'm kind of sad for having been absent for so long, but in all honesty I didn't have the time, or even more importantly, the energy to give this page the thought it deserved.
.
.
This past month I had a full time job and that job was to get our family from Costa Rica to El Salvador. The practical arrangements and the mental load associated with this move have been greater than I expected.
.
.
My previous moves between countries had involved a suitcase. And that's it.
.
.
This time it involved houses, cars, furniture, schools, bank accounts, insurances, a dog, a daughter, and 10 years of history in a country that has defined most of my adult life (the "serious part" of my adult life at least).
.
.
So yes, I've been busy project managing. And keeping myself and my act together.
.
.
In retrospective, I probably should've asked for more help. I knew I was probably pushing a bit too much when I got my third headache in one week (I don't get headaches), started having trouble sleeping and burst into tears while shoving PriceSmart's awful chicken salad down my throat during lunch last week. That's called overwhelm.
.
.
Overwhelm happens when I feel like I'm “keeping the ship afloat” on my own. Trying to move mountains alone. Constantly feeling like I'm in charge.
.
.
I think that's a common feeling for mothers. Like they're rowing and steering the boat by themselves. The mental load becomes too much. Why do we take that role?
.
.
I realized last week I needed to step back. I don't have to be that person who tries to take care of everything. It's not my role. But damn it's hard sometimes.
.
.
But yes, I'm back. And I'm happy to say that we did make it to El Salvador. Dog included.
.
.
And I let go of being on top of everything.
.
.
Talk to you soon! 😘 I missed you!

Going back to Italy stop in Atlanta. Almost lost the flight I had to put back some sugars for the fear. #romeimcoming #1daystopontheplane #byebyecostarica #puravidabutrunningascrazy #maequemiedo
