[vintage boutique in Old Sacramento - February 2012]
Since returning home from San Diego almost a week ago I've been feeling really tired and unmotivated. Dre has been cleaning, cooking, laundering and just plain taking care of business while I on the otherhand take naps, re-read the Hunger Games series & my new pile of magazines, and watch TV. I'm feeling useless around these parts lately. This role reversal really has me thinking about how we both contribute to household functions. It ebbs and flows, where one moment I'm excellent at keeping the house tidy, the girls on task, dinner on the table (or should I say TV trays as of late - to be totally transparent) and he's the one taking it easy. And then there are those days, where he's totally in control and I can let my hair down.
It's nice knowing that we get each other in this way; in these unspoken moments, where one just needs time to recharge. I'm not there yet but soon...I feel the need for change. Physically and mentally.
