     In recent weeks especially

      I have many people asking

“how do you do it all”

I know this comes from my frequent postings of races,

work etc but to be honest,I don’t want to share the annoying stuff,

I like my family and friends

to see what I am doing across the pond and in turn

the support I receive from both in the UK and here

when I achieve a goal is tremendous

and just

spurs me on

to

keep

on

trying.

So just to keep it straight,

 I thought I would remove the

                                                                                                      rose tinted glasses:0)

: I say F@$! at least ten times a day,many before 7.30 am and yes my kids hear.
: I shout at least ten times a day,the roof is loose because of it

and I am sure that is why the windows rattle.
: I am responsible for the door frames that keep coming loose,what can

I say,who doesn’t love a good door slam? shhh don’t tell the hubby,he just thinks the house is old!
: There are so many dust bunnies under my bed

I could make a spare mattress for guests.
:I don’t always change the sheets weekly.
: I only brush my hair and Annie’s hair

if it’s absolutely necessary

to prevent a bird setting up home.
: I forget to do the laundry

and only realize when Griff comes down without underwear

and I feed my kids pizza bagels at least once a week.
: I cry,

a lot,

I drink wine,

often

and

I keep a supply of xanax close at hand

without fail.

Everyone is good at putting on a face and I guess my face is “facebook” :0)
I don’t do it all,

in fact I am pretty lazy

and will kick the dust bunny further under the bed

until I can get to it.

Enjoy life guys,it’s not a dress rehearsal or

a competition

to

let

go.

know.

So I am here

but not

silently hanging out

with you all

Hopefully

my voice will

reappear.

It’s hard.

Those first times,

for everything.

You want to wrap them up

in cottonwool

soft as clouds.

Protect them from this world

that can be so rewarding

yet also so dark.

They were excited.

I was….

scared

but didn’t show it.

kissed them,

waved them off

Tomorrow I am sure

will be

easier
