silver lining

i have hit a breaking point, which is something i do about every three months.
its one of those things where i feel tired of doing all i have to do and kind of want a break from life.
do you ever get like that?
today it was so bad that i put nikson in real time-out for the first time.
that kind of breaking point my friends.
i put him in his crib with some toys and books and told him he could get out when dad got home.
he loved it.
i guess he teaches me how to make the best of any situation.
so now i think, how am i to make the best of what is going on?
some times i feel like i am doing things for every one and not enough for myself, and then i realize that's it.
my attitude.
my father always hinted that may be a problem for me in the future.
i have found the more i do things for others, without any expectation of reciprocation, the happier i feel.
"drop the expectations mrs. bishop."
i need to break this habit.
it wears me down and makes me tired and i have no time to be tired.
it also makes blake curl up on the couch and get lost in his phone until his wife is back to normal.
what makes your homes run better?

don't you just love getting the nitty gritty of our home?
blake married a crazy lady.
there i said it.

although, i do have a bit of a silver lining.

that's right folks.
handsome and i just booked this basket case a nice little getaway to jamaica.
and the little is staying with my sisters.
feel the rhythm.
feel the rhyme.

have a good weekend.
