ARRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

I will apologize ahead of time, this post is a venting post and I will cry if I want to....... I woke up this morning (and actually yesterday morning too) feeling completely overwhelmed. I don't know why, I don't what is going on inside of me--- I am usually a very strong, keep-it-together person; but not today. I woke up early but didn't feel like getting out of bed and I totally slacked at making breakfasts and lunches; and then I forgot Angie's ballet stuff at home so I had to go back and get it so I can go back and bring it to her.... And Ethan left his lunch in the car so i have to go back and bring that to him (hmmm, wait, he can just eat a school lunch today). I feel like the kids have sooooo much homework and I can't keep up with making sure it is all done, checked and right and then signing their planners and any of the other gazillion papers that come home with four children. And then there's Joseph, who is having such a hard time in school; therefore we have double and triple the work to do with him as supplemental learning to help him. And then there's the laundry that needs to be finished and put away---- how did it sneak up on me? I rarely have this issue, I usually get all the laundry done, folded, hung up and put away by Sundays.....not this week, it's still there in the basket to be put away...as a matter of fact, I even think there is still some in the dryer...g-r-e-a-t!!! Oh and then there's the two dogs who follow, follow, follow everywhere I go because I've (we've) spoiled them so bad by giving them treats and chewies and little snacks all the time!!! I.want.a.day.off!!!!!! I know, Iknow, I "chose" this path.... I chose to be a mother of 4 children, but today, I'm having a bad day and I.am.entitled!!!!! I can't wait for MamaKat's writing workshop...... "I would walk a mile for a..............." I can guarantee it will have something to do with all of this!!!!!!!
Wow, I needed that......And I might even need a glass of wine (or 2 or the whole bottle) when I get home tonight!!!

Drink the wine; let the laundry go. It is okay to have bad days (I have them quite often). Let the kids make pb&j for dinner, take your wine to the bedroom and watch a movie ;)

Thanks for tagging me -- I am going to do it -- soon, soon, soon.

So glad you vented! I hope that it helped!!
We all have days like that!
and my two dogs are so annoying like that too. When the kids are napping its the dogs that follow me into the bathroom!

Put all that other stuff away for one four hour block of time. Take a nice hot soothing bath and get your nails done. Play your favorite albums and have that glass or two of wine. As hard as you girls work (I was married once and saw it first hand), you deserve to take some time out for yourselves, because you are not a robot.

Hopefully getting all that out will help make you feel better.We all get overwhelmed sometimes.

Hope your feeling like yourself again soon.

Mama Amber said...

Sorry you are feeling this way :-(
I think every mom can relate to feeling that way one time or another. You deserve a break! Try to do something nice for yourself, or just lock yourself in a room for five minutes away from the kids and BREATH! And don't worry about the laundry.. it's not going to kill anyone if it sits there a few more days. Lol.
I really hope you start feeling better soon! :-)

I actually asked my hubby if I would seem lazy if we hired a cleaning lady (I'm a stay at home mom) and he said "Probably". Not what I wanted to hear. All I would want her to do is laundry and kitchen. That stuff piles up fast with 5 people wearing clothes and eating EVERYDAY.
