Do ever have those days/weeks/months where you feel as though you just are failing at life? I just had one of those weeks, and think I am about to have a breakdown of some sort. So, if you see on the news that a mom wearing ducky pajama bottoms is Kansas has locked herself in her bedroom with buckets of ice cream and refuses to come out, please don't panic. Its just me. Don't send help, just send more ice cream.
Honestly we are just so busy right now its like I am drowning. I can not keep up with who needs to be where, what is due where, what we need to take here or there, who we need to PICK UP here. ACK. I am forgetting to do things, make things, and plan things. I hate it. And honestly, we are not any busier than any other family out there. My family's time management leader just can't seem to get her head out of the clouds.
I didn't get the menu last week planned out. WOW! I didn't realize exactly how much that had simplified my life until it wasn't there. Last week I just did meal by meal, and going to the grocery store everyday. YUCK!
I am also in this frame of mind I drive myself and my family crazy noticing things. All things. Spots in the carpet, cobwebs in the corners, chipped paint, papers, broken toys,....EVERYTHING seems amplified. My friend L told me one time that when I get like this, I just need to leave and just walk away and that when I come back things will not be as I had seen them before. So far it isn't working. HAHA
I know a lot of this has to do with the weather. I am so sick of winter and snow. I feel like a caged animal.
Its the start of a new week, and I am determined to make this week better than the last! Off to make lists and menus!
