I've had so many people tell me I look tired lately but I have realized this is the new me. This process has aged me many years ahead of my time already. And yes I do know that by saying "You look tired today," does mean that I look like shit. I'm not as composed as I once was. Give me a break people.
If I made a list of all the things I accomplish from one day to the next most people would fall over. I do not say that to get a pat on the back I say that to have you realize that yes, I do look tired. Single parenting is exhausting. Where is my person to bounce ideas off of? Where is the person who steps in and says don't worry about cooking tonight? Do you want me to give the kids a bath or put them to bed? Or how about 15 minutes of alone time? ALL GONE. Navigating this new crazy life has made me TIRED. All the concealer in the world wouldn't cover these dark circles. So, yes when you say gee, you look tired forgive me when I stick my middle finger up at you in return.
