Spring comes with the new fashion and I spent a few minutes seeing what is out there. I am not looking too much at clothes because I will be buying from different venues this year. ;) But, accessories are something we all can fit into! And I don't buy them unless they really say something. That's what they are for anyway, right? So I saw a few things that I think would fit in any locale - east or west, bohemian or preppy ( the town we live in now is VERY preppy).
( earrings and shoes: Ann Taylor. scarf: Banana Republic)
Many times the necklaces I love are too heavy for my neck. So the next best option is scarves!
I have veracose (sp?) veins running down my legs. I huff and puff getting up the stairs. I loathe to bend over to pick up something because it cuts off my breathing for a second. My hormones have gone hay-wire.
So, before working out, I took a minute for my baby. I checked out what is going on in utero this week ( 21!!) and thought back to her second ultrasound. She was playing with her umbilical cord at 18 weeks- actually swatting it! I had never seen one of my children do that. When she hears the kids in the car after school, she starts kicking around, already a part of the group. We have very strong personalities in this house and she is not one to let herself go unnoticed. She is one special little lady.
Life is hectic, whether you are having your first or 10th child. It involves different stresses and different demands, but the feeling of being stretched beyond our capacity is there, none-the-less. And thats ok. It's time to sit down, think about the reality of your life, and come to the acute awareness that all that really matters right now is the loves you have in your life; the people and those precious relationships you have with them. You'll figure everything else out.
