One of Those Days

08 January 2009

Do you ever have one of those days? Today is like that for me.

The goings on around the neighborhood lately have me all stressed out. I have not accomplished one thing this week that I intended too. As a result, my depression is really rearing it's ugly head. All I want to do is hide under the covers with a bag of kisses and a book and escape reality. But, I'm trying really hard not to do that. I've made myself do chores today. I've done three loads of laundry, washed the dishes, set meat out to thaw, played with the dogs, tried to get caught up on email. So, I guess today isn't a total loss.

But, I'm still feeling so frazzled! I don't think I'll ever get the house looking the way I want it to - which makes me feel defeated and thus depressed. Then there is the lovely tween testing his limits, which is really getting to me lately. That boy sure does push my buttons! So, not only do I feel like a failure as a housewife, but also as a mom.

I am trying to snap out of this, really I am. I've been writing lists of goals to accomplish everyday, am reading everything I can about raising tween boys, and am learning to pray about every area of my life.

So, what about you? Do you ever get frazzled? How do you perk yourself up?

I take a nice long walk with my pup. Always seems to give me more energy. Hang in there!
