Word of the Week

**I have been struggling to keep up with commenting but I promise that I will eventually comment on everyone. Right about now I am commenting on last Sunday's #mysundayphoto. And hopefully I can finish everything.**

I am struggling with chores too. I am just really tired always lately. Its like I can't get back lost energy.

Its August now and in a few days and in a blink of an eye it will be September and my son will start school. We are a bit ready now. Bought some uniforms and we will buy school supplies once we know what to buy.

The real reason I am closely monitoring the days and months is that everyone I know who are of the same nationality as me is going home to the Philippines. Even the other mothers who I know who is not from here are going home. To Ireland, Italy and Poland. They want to see their family before the holiday season ends. Going home. I have been controlling this feeling of homesickness and I said that I wont talk about it again but seeing people post their photos of going home just makes the feeling of homesickness resurfaces.

And its eating me. I am so jealous of those people who are going home. It is so hard to look at facebook now and instagram. I am trying to be happy for them and yet .. yet I am wishing so hard that I can be home too.

So I am struggling in doing everything as I am trying to put on a straight face in front of my son. He is with me always and faking happiness is not easy. Right now he is playing with my husband and I want to cry while writing this.

    Oh, this sounds so hard, Merlinda. It’s no wonder you’re tired and struggling, with these feelings weighing you down. I can’t imagine how hard it must be. Sending you hugs and hopes that you’ll be OK. Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    Oh, Merlinda, I am so sorry you’re feeling so sad and homesick. It’s no wonder you feel tired and that you’re struggling. Try to be kind to yourself, huge hugs x

    It must be so hard to be torn all the time. Being so far from home. Maybe if you explain to your son why you are feeling sad he would understand a bit better. I read a few of your more recent posts and I get the feeling he might think he is why you are sad. Teach him all about your home and family then maybe it will help both of you šŸ™‚ wishing you love and hugs xx
