I think I’ve lost my sense of humour.
It’s a realization that came to me this morning while considering my blog post for today. I would never have considered myself a comedian by any stretch but I like to think I have a dry wit. I read some of the mommy bloggers I admire, and I enjoy the way they find humour in the chaos that is motherhood. I used to write like that but somewhere it’s gotten lost.
The ideda disturbs me. I believe a healthy sense of humour is an important part of a healthy life. It’s one of the strong points of my marriage. The Husband and I enjoy making each other laugh and often manage the tough spots with humour. The idea that I’m losing that ability is worrisome. What with work, three kids, a sick parent and a house to run (and a looming three week mother-in-law visit) I need all the survival skills I can muster.
The question is how to I get it back? I’ve been doing a lot better these days at slowing down and not taking everything so seriously. I feel calmer and more grateful for what I do have, but everything still seems so serious! Even my blog posts of late have lacked any spark. I need a little funny in my life.
