Ramblings of a tired, emotional, overscheduled Me

Do you ever have one of those days/weeks/months/year when you feel you just aren't moving forward or backwards?! I feel like no matter how hard I try I am trudging along and never gaining or losing any ground, never moving an inch.

I have found as I have matured (OK just gotten older) that I count the little blessings more, manage my time better yet find less time for myself, sleep less but really need more sleep, and have become my own worst critique.

I think tomorrow I am taking the day off and spending time on me and the kids, no cleaning, no baking, no phones, no running around. I need to be a big kid again, no worries, no responsibilities just unconditional love, going with the flow of emotions, plenty of floor time, and a tornado of toys strewn around the house, no schedules or hidden agendas- at least until 5pm when I have to go into work...hopefully that will raise my spirits.

Sometimes, as a mom, it's hard to remember to take time to just BE. Not running around, not being somewhere or something for someone else ...
It's nice you're going to demand that time tomorrow.
Have fun with that!

Going in to work at 5pm. I thought you were taking a day off. I know the kids are going to have a blast.

It is nice to hear that that others feel the same as I do sometimes. I just feel like nothing ever gets done, because when it does there are three more things to go on the list in it's place! Have a great time with the kids today.

I am sure that working is making things even harder to accomplish at home. You are a trooper for taking care of things when you are needed. Way to go.
