Where Have I Been???


I'm so sorry about my non-existence on here for the past week. In addition to my normal semi-hectic schedule, I had dental implant surgery done on Monday and have just not felt like being on the computer beyond the 8 hours at work. Honestly, the surgery itself did not hurt that much (probably less than my botched root canal a few years ago), but I think I should take it easy so that it all heals up quickly. Actually, only phase one of the implant is done, which is the titanium screw. The crown will be attached in about two months. I'm just so thankful that I didn't have to get a bridge. I feel like I'm too young for that! : )
I'm starting to wonder how women who have children do all of this. I'm tired enough after waking early and going to work and then coming home and cooking dinner and washing dishes and doing laundry! Blogging is fun for me, and I love reading other blogs but sometimes it just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day. I know I shouldn't worry. When God decides to bless my husband and me with a child, HE alone will give me the strength to be able to do it all. It's just that sometimes I feel guilty for feeling overwhelmed, and there's only two of us. I just want to be faithful with what God has given me responsibility for thus far. Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Jenny, I was just thinking about this before I clicked on your blog. How tired I am *all the time*. I do worry sometimes about how I will handle being a mother eventually, because it's hard enough to have the energy to take care of myself! I was actually thinking of blogging about this. Thanks for reminding me I'm not the only one!

P.S. I pray that you heal quickly and completely.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words. It means so much to know there are others out there like me. I'm not close to perfect, and I do not have it all together. But I'm trying! By the way, are you planning a wedding too? That's definitely another stressful time of life, or it can be.

ahhhhh may HaShem bless you both! surviving children eh? I am quite sure we could write a whole library full of hints and tips... maybe I just might one day.... if you get that 'maternal feeling' I would strongly recommend you invite small nieces/newphews to stay for a weekend (think small) or volunteer to babysit for some young couple with small children - just to test the water ..... :0D then write to me... ALL ABOUT IT...

Oh, Ahavah, I am the oldest of six children (the youngest is 12 yrs. old now). And I have worked with many, many small ones outside my family. I know how challenging caring for children can be! (But I still want some of my own...) :)
