One of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days?
I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, and it's been downhill since then.
Before I can finish one thing, it's off to the next three things, and before you know it, there's 20 things all over the living room waiting to be done. Lunch is late. You just feel like your draging and can't catch up, and then you look up at the clock, and it's 2 hours later than you thought it was. That's when a dirty diaper can almost send you into tears. Just one more thing on the ever-growing "To-Do" list that you can't seem to even make a dent in just the top half.
There are days when I feel utterly and completely useless, and like I've done nothing productive all day, but I'm so tired that I MUST have accomplished SOMETHING, right?

And my poor husband. He does SO much! He helps around the house. He cooks 2-3 times a week. Everytime he leaves the house without me, he offers to take Daniel with him. He is great with Daniel. He just catches most of my frustration on days like this because he's big enough to handle it~ most of the time.

I know this has been a lot of complaining, but I'm hoping that one of you might have a simular day, and know that you are not alone in feeling like this. It happens. We are not perfect. Some days are going to be like this, and it doesn't have to be the whole day! That's the amazing thing about little ones. It's like there is a reset button that is pushed everytime they fall asleep. They wake up, like nothing had happened, and you can get on and enjoy the rest of the day (or the new one).

I'm going to go hit my reset button, and try to relax during the wonderful nap time, and we are going to try again this afternoon...

Thanks for listening! : )

  1. People say to concentrate on the big thing and the little things take care of themselves. Some days, the big thing is just too big. That's when you pick one small project. Finish it. If that's all that happens that day, hang your hat on it and know you did all you could.
