I usually try to be happy and cheerful – but this autumn season always gets to me. The change in weather, the sun saying good bye to this hemisphere, the holidays coming up, the dreaded daylight savings change. They all hit me and this year it was at once.

I’m trying to hold it together for everyone. Isn’t that what all good mom’s do. Isn’t that what all good girls do. But the tears fall and I want to just curl up back in bed.

I feel the tug of war do I push myself harder to get things done or do I give myself more grace. What do you do?

This weekend we ate good food and watched a lot of good movies. Lots of time in bed snuggling and lounging on the couch. Just letting the season change flow over us, accepting the changes, avoiding thinking and pondering what could be ahead.

We put up Thanksgiving decorations and bought lots of treats for the family holiday boxes from Hobby Lobby. Lots of self care and a little bit of chores, but fun chores.

Now it is back to the grind. Slowly but surely.
