A brief retreat

Some parts of life are more chaotic than others.  Moving with a 7 week old, the past 10 days have been full of chaos.  My little girl has decided to start sleeping through the night.  And she's been doing so for the past week and a half.  An incredible blessing (yes), she's awake most of the day and loves, loves, loves to move.  This has meant a lot of eating lunch one handed and not a lot of getting anything done.

A little discouraged from the piles of boxes that still need to be unpacked, we left it all tonight.  I put on some lip gloss, we packed up the baby and drove 2 minutes to get a latte.  We came home, put our sweet girl to bed and my husband retreated to his office for a bit of gaming.  I saw the sink full of dinner dishes and walked away.  Turned on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and painted my very neglected nails.

It was quiet.  It was relaxing.

Sometimes when life gets crazy, it's just best to leave the dishes 'til morning.


  1. AMEN!
    Glad to know you are relocated, and can now take your time to get settled. Sometimes you just have to walk away from the chaos.
