I am having one of those days where everything that has been going on lately and all the busyness of life has hit me in the face. It is one of those days where I want to run around and get as much done as I possibly can, but my body and spirit are not wanting to move or be productive. I have absolutely no energy today and just want to snuggle up on the couch and veg.
I was going to take the kids to the zoo this morning, but I was not up for keeping track of both of them myself. Then, I was going to get on the treadmill and after the first few steps, that was a no go.
So instead, I took a shower, doing a little laundry and dishes, have dinner working in the crock pot and now sitting here enjoying a little quiet while the kids are napping. And most likely will go lay on the couch for a bit.
I guess this is my bodies way of letting me know I need a little break. Sometimes I wish I was SuperMom and was able to do it all, all the time. I have to realize that I am only one person and can only fit so much in to one day, week, etc… I have been so forgetful lately and I have never been this bad. I am trying to do whatever I can in whatever way I can to help contribute to the family finances, but I feel as though nothing is really working… As I sit here and write this, I am definitely realizing that I need to take a step back and look at what is working and what isn’t and get a better focus on what my family needs and how I can make that happen.
Oh I sure wish life was easier and not so stressful 🙂
I have to say though that I am so thankful and blessed to have a supportive husband, close family that helps any way they can, and friends(though very few) that I can count on. Sometimes I feel like I am alone a lot of the times since I stay home with my kids and don’t have lots of “outside” interaction. I guess a lot of SAHMs probably feel like that at sometime or another. But I wouldn’t trade my life or being able to stay at home with my kids for anything. It is a struggle, especially financially, but it really is worth it.
I love my kids more than anything. I love my husband and all he does for us. And I love my parents, in-laws, and friends for just being who they are.
