Running away.

Today and sadly like most days I feel like a terrible mother. I try hard but can't control my temper. I feel like I've lost control on EVERYTHING. I don't enjoy cooking like I used to. It's a chore just like everything else. I don't remember the last time I laughed. My house is ALWAYS dirty. I can't keep up. I feel overwhelmed and miserable. I'm angry all the time. I feel like I'm going to burst with hot lava. I try deep breathing. Counting to 10. I don't know what to do :(

Well you had me fooled! Those gorgeous girls look like they have the best Mom in the world.

PS I think we all have those days. I totally use to love to cook, now I am happy to make a PB&J. ;) ::hugs::

YOU are a wonderful mom! I think that is a commom theme among us mommies! I too am at my wits end, no one values anything I do, my opinions seem to matter less every day etc..... Much harder job than I have ever had. Sending a big love and some dreams of chocolate your way! XOXO kir

I can completely relate, Pam! I know that feeling and it can be nasty...and boy, I can relate to the short fuse/big temper thing! Hang in there...you're an amazing mom---probably just lots of stress coming at you from all directions...I know how quickly things can seem great and then suddenly completely overwhelming...especially when we perfectionists/type As have such high expectations!:)
Can you get a break this week? A massage or a break from kiddos to do something for yourself?
I'm sending good energy and thoughts your way...be gentle with yourself---it will get better!
Lots of xxooo your way!!!!

Oh my dear - sorry to hear you are going through a rough spot. Hugs!

How about a cleaning service, once or twice a month?

read my blog. from the beginning. THAT is what you do. Because I have been SO honest. And I know what it feels like to spin out of control and to be unhappy with EVERYTHING.
This will pass, though, you know....you do know that...but while you are IN it, I know...it is really really hard.
SO I will say a prayer for you...right now, in fact...and just know that I am thinking about you today.
And I have been there.
WE all have.

I think we can all relate to this quote I came across...

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once."
-Jennifer Unlimited-

I wish I lived close...we could chat over Starbucks and Dr. Pepper. Take care sweet lady!
Lotsa Love,

Trying to figure out if you wrote this or if I did!

This is exactly how I feel nearly all the time.
