#Microblog Monday: Sidelined

It is the truth that once you have kids stuff that focus’ on you (or your husband) suddenly becomes nothing more than an afterthought. Well, maybe not an afterthought, but definitely not as important as it was before.

You see, tomorrow is my husband’s birthday. The day after that is our 7th anniversary. Guess what I have done to prepare for these events…not much. I ordered a few presents for his birthday then suddenly realized how mediocre the whole thing was. I don’t want him to feel as though his birth or our anniversary is unimportant to me, because they aren’t, I’ve just been a bit distracted with Muppet’s many idiosyncrasies (another story for another time) lately.

So today I ran around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to prepare for these events. I bought stuff to make some fun cupcakes for his office, I managed to find a few small gifts that he hadn’t requested, and I put together an idea for a simple anniversary gift. I’m exhausted. I used to be all into this kinda stuff now it has become a last-minute ordeal. I really need to work on that.

  1. This is something that McRuger and I have struggled with. I have no answers….but please wish your hubby a happy birthday…and a happy anniversary to you both!!!

  2. Honestly, I think you’re far from dropping the ball. You’re just learning how to navigate given your current situation. Yes, it feels frustrating, but I’m willing to bet next year you’ll be on top of things. Happy early birthday to J and early 7th anniversary!

  3. Mel

    Happy birthday to your husband.

    It’s hard to carve out the time and energy. It sounds like you’ve done the best you can with prepping things this year. Go enjoy the days.
