Twintage: Western Day

Western Day

I've been a bit of a slacker on this little online place of ours for a while now. Luckily Karen has been helping me out with her own posts, that usually have something to do with both of us anyway. It’s been hard for me to feel motivated. The last time I posted we were planning a bathroom in the basement of my mother’s house. My family and I moved in to help her out while she was receiving cancer treatment but things progressed too fast. Now that she’s gone, we are still living in the house but it’s been hard to feel motivated. It’s hard to feel motivated to unpack, or go through her things, or make the house our own. I know it’ll get easier in time, and that’s what I decided to give myself..Time. I’ll do a little when I feel up to it and not rush or force anything. In a blink of an eye though, it’s gone from January when we first found out she had health problems to now almost May. Four months have passed and it feels like no time at all but so much has changed. The one area I don’t want to take time away from is my son. I don’t want months to go by and not document him and the things I’ll want to remember. Maybe through putting my attention on him and our adventures I’ll start to feel more motivated in other aspects of our lives. 

So on that note, today was Western Day at Kieran’s school. I was thinking it was going to be hard to find cowboy themed clothing but it turned out to be a pretty easy outfit to put together. The shirt is vintage and was gifted to Kieran last summer by Neil’s cousin. The bandana was from a toy monkey Kieran had the hat was from Kieran’s grandmother. It’s an adult cowboy hat but Kieran has a pretty big head apparently.  If I had more time it would have been nice to find cowboy boots, a belt with a buckle and maybe even a little sheriff badge but I think it still turned out pretty well. 

So here's to taking my time to heal but staying motivated where it's important. Hopefully this will get the ball rolling for me and there will be more to come.
