I feel so terribly guilty complaining about how exhausted I am, when I’m not the one with hormones coursing through my veins and every ounce of energy devoted to growing a wee person’s vital organs. That being said, I am CRISPY! Things at work are really quite hectic these days and when I glance at our upcoming weekends, all I see are booked-solid commitments until mid-October, leaving very little down-time for decompression. I even ended up canceling plans with our dearest friends last night, just so I could try to get caught up on some rest.
I feel like K thinks he’s mostly so drained from Falco, but I can’t imagine that all of our social commitments are really helping matters. We’re more scheduled now than we were throughout our entire spring and summer! When we get home after a long day of work, we look at each other, know we should do a chore or two, and then end up collapsing on the couch. Worse yet is that K’s “morning” sickness mostly hits him during the late afternoon and early evening, making him completely disinterested in dinner. These days, since dinner isn’t a time for familial bonding, we grab whatever sounds good (or in K’s case, least gross) to us before making our way to the couch, where we pretty much stay for the remainder of the night, save for human or canine bodily needs.
How do you find ways to destress as a family?
