Hi 😊 It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡
August went fast like many other months this year,- but it’s maybe not so strange when the days are filled up with work and people? 😊
I want to write more in my blog, but it’s not easy to put “all and everything” I want to do in a day or a week at the moment. And believe it or not,- but it takes a bit of time to live together with young adults people,- even when it is my own children 💙💙❤. It’s a bit “traffic” in my/ our home,- and not the best “writing silent” I need and prefer to have when I write 📝.
So I made a choice for August so I shouldn’t press my self to much, and that was to priority my children, my jobs and not so much myself and my stuff and things, hobbies, interests, my life. The only “my thing” I have choose to do during August is to “fling” every Saturday evening, to use some hours on myself and an other person. Jepp,- a male 😉. But that’s another “story” for another day 😊.
I know I’m very lucky that have this opportunity to live and spend time with my young adults children, but it takes time and energy. And to be honest,- I miss to be with my friends, and I miss to paint and to take care of just me, myself 😊 It’s not easy to combinate “it all” together. Different things, different lifes, different routines. It’s to much “traffic” in the home at the moment 😊. And I know it’s not easy to understand this “combination” of time, children, work, friends, own time, hobbies and so on when you haven’t been there,- to split your self a bit “here and there and everwhere”.
I can’t actually press or split myself to much either, because then I can be sick,- and be in bed for a while,- something I really don’t want to happen 😳. And I know Im a bit “on the edge” to be sick at the moment. I can feel it in my body 😔. So, yes,- it has been a bit about priority in July and August, for a couple of reasons.
We, me and ny children, lives a bit different too, work in different times and have actually different daily habits as well. All my 3 children has been living on their own for a while, and created their own habits. Good or bad,- it doesn’t matter, – because we all have good and bad habits. But it’s not the easiest thing in the world to “sew” together different habits to a nice and smoothly balanced in the daily life and routines. Special when we all know this “living together” part is just for a while.
I’m tired now,- I need to admit that 😴. I love my children unconditional 💙💙❤,- but I’m very ready to just live my life. Be a parent, a mammi in a new way and form then I have been doing during the last 26 years.
I know I m lucky that have this opportunity to be so much together with my young adults children. I have friends that don’t even have the possibility to see or meet their children this year. Not be able to spend any time at all together with them. The reason is all the strange things this coronavirus has done to our society.
So yes,- even if I’m tired, a bit empty of energy and really miss to be just me with my habits, hobbies and interests,- I try my very best to enjoy the time I have together with my two youngest children at the moment. As I did tried to enjoy the time together with my oldest son when he was living together with me for 3 months during this Spring.
I’m making food, keeping the home okay, shopping, looking after that we have enough of “everything”, looking after my children that they are okay, and I’m a taxi driver for them too. A lot 😅. But I want them to know,- I’m here for them. I’m available for them ❤. Some will probably have the opinion that I’m spoiling my kids with be so available for them as I’m, – but in my mind I’m not. I’m there for them.
My children do the dishes and they wash their own clothes,- so yes they do help a bit. But it’s still busy, and so very different to live together with young adults children then when they was younger and less independent then now.
My son in the middle are travelling to Norway next week, and I’m not sure when I see him again. Because I dont know what “the next step” in this coronavirus situation in our society will be. So Im trying to be an available mammi for him as much as I can now. And,- of course I also have some mixed feelings about this travel to Norway for different reasons,- but I think this is a trip that needs to be done for him. A trip that’s important for him to do.
The plan is that my daughter is moving out in October. She is trying to find an apartment close to her work. Something that will make her working days a bit easier. At the moment she is using one hour each way to her job, that’s 2 hours “on the road”, 5- 6 days a week. 2 hours she can use to a bit better thing then be on the train 😊.
So what can I say about August 🌞? At least Thank you so much for all the time together with my two youngest children 💙❤,- even I’m a bit tired now,- I really presage every minute, every day, every week together with them 🥰. And Thank you for the sun and lovely ( sometimes very hot 🔥) summerdays too 🌞.
And I do Welcome September 🍀🌞. I don’t know to much about you yet, or what kind of changes or challenges, happiness and joy, or new experiences you will bring me, except from the fact that my son in the middle are going to Norway for a while 💙. And hopefully my daughter will find a good apartment too 🏠. And maybe I will find more time to myself again this month, and time to do my things and stuff, paint, meet some of my friends? 🥰 I hope so 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.
August is over,- and September has already started 🍀. I’m very grateful for the time I have together with my children during this summer, at the same time as I’m very ready to be a mammi in a new way now 🥰.
