Life and My Sanity.

Lately I’ve been feeling… just not like myself. I always try to look for the positive. I am the person who says, “Well, at least this or that didn’t happen instead…” when something bad happens. I’m the one who reassures my husband that everything is going to work itself out and bring him out of a bad mood. And this past week or so I’ve felt so overwhelmed with everything that has been thrown our way that I can’t be that. The stress has shown on my face, in my eyes and most of all my spirit.

Staying at home with the kids during the day will run anyone ragged.. top that with constant car troubles, college, not getting to spend enough time with your husband, no breaks from the kids, plumbing problems, cleaning just to have it dirty two minutes later, and you’ve got someone who is just done.

I know things will turn around but I am hoping that is sooner than later. This person sucks, my negative attitude sucks and it’s so hard to just shake off the feeling that I am inadequate in all aspects.

As always, thanks for reading.
