Stepping back to punt.

I have been working on a post this morning. It just didn’t come together like I wanted it to/thought it should. So I’m stepping back to punt.

  • we (Wild Boy and I) both fell back asleep this morning. 
  • ugh.
  • he was late to school, grumpier than usual and I have mommy-guilt out the wazoo.
  • and it’s drizzling.
  • it’s already 8:25 and I’ve accomplished nothing.
  • oh! I did empty the dishwasher.
  • my Christmas tree is still nekked. 
  • my excuse for the nekked tree is “we are waiting for Shawn to get home so we can decorate the tree as A Family.) 
  • And I’m stickin’-to-it.
  • my bible study materials, bible, journal, etc., are all stacked up on the couch. 
  • Untouched for days.
  • this post has turned into a “the confessions of a soon-to-be-50-something mom.”
  • being a teenager is hard.
  • being the parent of a teenager is really hard.
  • I had my entire week planned out and nothing is going the way I planned it.
  • I hate that.
  • I expected that.
  • I am struggling with some jealousy and guilt this morning. 
  • Those two together are wicked ugly.
  • closing this post with Psalm 6:11: “You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.” HCSB

Love you guys. See y’all soon.
