Overwhelmed. That’s the only word for it.

Lately I have been feeling very overwhelmed with everything going on. I feel like the world is spinning out of control.
My kids are great, I have to admit I am very proud of them. Through all the chaos, stress, and being left with a sitter far more often then they are used to (not hard, since before a few months ago, we’d literally never left them) they are adapting super well and I am not worried at all about them adapting to our move.
As the day of our move creeps closer and closer I worry about me though. Overall, I’m happy about the move. But deep down I’m incredibly saddened by it.
New Brunswick has been my home for almost 5 years. I am going to miss it. But more then that, as the move gets closer I realize how much I am going to rally miss my friends. I’ve met some truly amazing people here. And right now, I’m really feeling how much I am going to miss them.
Things are slowly falling into place around our move, although nothing has been set in stone yet. We were promised answers by the end of the week though, so hopefully soon things with start being finalized and my stress levels will go down.
After some incredibly painful contractions last week, I was pretty panicked, but those have tapered off and I’m feeling more normal again. Our at least as normal as one can feel 25 weeks pregnant. This baby girl is an active one! I think the contractions were triggered by the stress of a visitor we had last week. So hubs and I are setting summer getting rules regarding that person’s future visits. (If there are any)
I can’t wait to wake up one day and have all this stress behind me. It’ll be a good feeling. Even if it is a little bittersweet.

Love, hugs and more to come later

  1. Oh, you have so much going on. I know once you move and things are settled, you will be better able to feel prepared for the birth, etc. I’m sure you’ll miss your friends but they sound like they’re going to be there for you even if you’re far away. šŸ˜€ ā¤
