At times when stress is crushing me, I have a tendency to move faster and try to do more. And that always leads to epic meltdown status. I make mistakes, drop things, spill things and have to redo most of what I just did. It is like being in the middle of a cyclone.
So when we woke up on Saturday morning, I was determined to leave the week behind me. We got up early, picked up my sister and drove to LBI for the weekend. And it was fantastic!

I seriously thought Max's heart would explode with joy. Beach Haven was dedicating a new fire truck and there were almost 60 fire trucks from all the surrounding towns there for the ceremony. It was so fun and amazing to see them all! The lights were flashing, sirens were blaring and Max was so excited.
That night we had nachos for dinner and after Max went to bed, my sister and I laid on the couch and drank way too much wine. We laughed, we cried and then we drunkenly stumbled to bed. Two bottles of wine and a bag of Raisinets probably wasn't great for my diet but some days you just need to enjoy yourself.
Sunday was a rainy, gross day so we headed home early, making sure to stop at Sonic and at Wawa. Because we apparently needed more junk food. It was a long trip home but it was really great to spend family time together.
I have been moving at mach speed lately and I was feeling seriously worn down. My emotions have been at a high point lately and I don't like feeling that way. These moments of weakness causes all of my doubts and worries to creep in. I don't have the patience for Max and all of his toddler antics and we spend too much time screaming and crying. It is awful to be in that cycle and I am so glad that I woke up today feeling refreshed and ready for a great week. I will probably go thru a hideous sugar withdrawal this week but it was totally worth it!
A dude and his love of trucks!
