Me: “I’m just so exhausted and I don’t really know why.”
My friend: “Ummm you have a newborn?”
Me: “Yeah but I’m emotionally exhausted. It’s like I think of something that would be fun to talk to Hubs about but then I don’t even have the energy to bring it up in conversation.”
I know that the first 6-12 weeks of new baby-ness is draining, and I guess I thought since I have a more positive attitude this time around, I wouldn’t find it so tiring. Maybe those expectations were a bit far-fetched. Maybe I can still enjoy and adore these precious days with Jules and Hubs and the kids and still accept that is going to take it out of me. The important thing is re-filling my tank so I can keep up with it all.
Hubs is off again for most of this week, so it’s time to get a few things in place for when he’s not around every day. Number one on my hit list, I’m sad to say, is my laundry habits. My current system of washing 2-3 times a week isn’t keeping up with the demand so I need to go to every second day. This fills me with dread but I need to change my attitude to just get it done… tomorrow…
