I've been so overwhelmed with my life lately. Since my appendectomy surgery, being behind for work because of surgery, never feeling caught up around the house, back to school and a lot of emotional/mental health issues I've been going through recently, I felt like I've been drowning. Because of those reasons, I decided to stay home from our big solar eclipse trip to Idaho this weekend. 😥🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑 Did I mention my in-laws live in Rigby, the very city for the best view of the eclipse in the whole state of Idaho?
The thought of fighting traffic and crowds, having to pack everything in and having to rush back so I can be to meetings on Tuesday was too much. So last night I sent Nick and Jade to Idaho with all of my love and well wishes for an amazing time, while I get to stay here and rest/ catch up for the weekend. As hard as making that phone call to my mother-in-law and explaining that I would not be joining the family was, I'm feeling grateful for a mother-in-law who understands and shows major compassion towards me. She graciously encouraged me to take this time for myself and with complete love was relatable and understanding. Half of me felt super guilty, while the other half jumped for joy because I get to have very needed alone time and now l feel like I'm on mom vacation! For those reasons, I know I made the right choice to stay home. Make sure to tune in to my Instastories to watch all the shenanigans… Who knows by the end of this thing I may have total cabin fever, and have a volleyball as a best friend. 🏐 #Wilson
