Do you ever have "one of those weeks???"

The past couple weeks for us has been a little hectic.

I'm overwhelmed, maxed out, and I just don't feel like myself.

Our marriage has seen better weeks,

The house is far from move in condition,

And the girls aren't listening.


Do you ever feel frustrated with yourself?

I need to be a better mother,

A better wife,

And a better example.


I feel like my brain is in overload,

I'm saying things I don't mean,

And my mind is just plain blurry...


I feel like we're in some kind of fog,

Life feels crazy,

And I want a break.

I need to relax,

I need to take a deep breath,

And I need to get a grip!


It's just one of those days,

One of those seasons,

And tomorrow is a new start.

Ahhh, deep breath in, long exhale out...

Alright, sorry for all the complaining. Just wanted to be honest. It actually feels good to just get it all out!

Thanks for listening...

oh, friend, I'm so sorry. I know how you feel... but unfortunately that doesn't help much. Thanks for being honest. I need to do more of that myself. Praying for you tonight!

I think we all have those weeks... some peeps are just way better at hiding it (or is that called denial lol).
I hope tomorrow / next week is better.

Oh kate, those times are so hard. Yuck is no fun and it can really wear you down. I'm praying friend!

Lamentations 3:21-24
This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I will hope in Him.
*Praying today is better! I can relate...

What a beautiful family you have! And I totally know how you feel! Doing better now but a couple weeks ago I was in this month long funk and really had no good reason. Just the way it is sometimes...I guess. So 5 girls! Wow! Lots of drama no doubt! Will stop by again. Thanks for checking out my blog!

I think I can finally see a little light at the end of our 8 months TRIPLE YUCK season of life. Definitely know how you feel.
