duck duck goose

Anyone else feel like life is one long game of duck, duck, goose?
I feel like most days are spent waiting for it to be my turn.
My turn for something amazing to happen.

Some days, those amazing things do happen.  Both big & small.
Memphis making it through a day at school without any major bumps is a huge achievement.
Having your husband start a new job after 6 months of being off & not knowing if he was going to make it through it is an amazing victory.

But some days aren't very exciting.  They sort of run into each other, you know?
Wake up. Go to work. Come home. Repeat.
No matter how monotonous, none of them is ever taken for granted.

I love every moment with my family and I enjoy putting in a hard day's work.
I've been blessed to stumble into a hobby that makes us a little extra money on the side...
I just wish, once in a while, luck would tag ME in this silly game of duck, duck, goose.
I'm due to win the lottery or something, y'know?

  1. Love the pictures! I was in the same situation as you are where everything felt monotonous so I took 4 days off of work for my husband's birthday. It's sad that it's coming to an end but thankful that I got to spend an additional 4 days away from reality.


  2. I totally know what you mean. I guess sometimes we have to make the excitement drop in our laps...

  3. Definitely!! I get that for sure... There are little victories to be celebrated every single day, but once in awhile a large victory would be nice to shake things up!!!

  4. I really, really, really love that first picture.

    I soooo get this feeling, too. You're not alone!

  5. I start to feel like this every now and then. It drives me mad. Especially working in the restaurant business. Every now and then I will approach a table and have an out of body experience and think to myself, what am I doing here? Is this really me right now? Because it sure doesn't feel like who I should be or who I thought I would become...

    But then I snap out of it. I guess, in my case I just keep trying to do the things that make me really happy in life. That way when I am forced to do things I dislike it makes it more bearable.

    I love your pictures!
