In a rut


Do you ever have those weeks where you just literally walk around the house in circles trying to get things done? It seems for the past 8 months I've had this problem. Oh sure, I do accomplish a little something here and there, but for the most part things are just not happening.I don't have a good routine. I don't feel like myself. I feel so inadequate sometimes. I find a lot of times I just feel blue and pessimistic. I feel like I'm trying to fake my way through things. And why can't I even get my house clean?! I'm overwhelmed. It's such a double edged sword though. If I don't have a project, I'm even more miserable. Sigh. I need to have a date with my husband. I need to heal the huge crack on my toe that comes from wearing sandles in chilly weather, I need to scrub my toilets, I need a good make-out session, I need to know my kids are going to bed happy. I need to close all the windows and doors and run around the house singing to Johnny Cash. These are all realistic goals for the week. Maybe some of them will get done. If anything, I need a clean toilet.

Hey babe, so sorry to hear you're feeling like this! I completely understand because that's my life story. I really wish you luck getting out of this rut because it's NOT fun! Wish we lived close enough that I could come over and cheer you up! Sending you a hug from over here. :)

I hope things pickup for you during the week. A date sounds lovely.

I hear you....I've been in that rut for a while too...I just put on my happy face and pretend everything is fine and dandy in hopes of convincing myself that it really is:)

I have those weeks -and months too!!!- When I have a little time to do something I finally do anything because I don´t know where to start! My baby has 4 months and it´s so difficult for me to organice my life! I can imagine how must you feel, I have only two children.. and would like to have more but sometimes i really think seriously about that! :)
