End of my rope today...

Do you all ever have weeks, months, years where you just feel like you can't catch up? I'm swamped at work, swamped in life, swamped in everything. I always have all these high expectations for the list of things that I plan to get done and NEVER do I get to the bottom of the list.

It's overwhelming sometimes. Today I came to work and wanted to pull my hair right out because it instantly was one problem after another, one negative phone call after another and one more task piled on top of another. However, I decided to leave for 10 minutes and run through the drive thru at Taco Casa and on my drive decided to "Put on my BIG girl panties and deal with it". So now, at least my attitude towards that is better.

At home is another story. My laundry pile piles are bigger than both my children it feels like. I haven't been to the grocery store in ages. My closet is a glorified mess, which only tells me that I need to get rid of some things. You know what? I just don't feel like doing any of it when I get home from work...which is why it still sits there today!

Irritations and overwhelms aside, I don't forget how blessed my life it. I complain and then realize how many people have been looking for work for ages. I complain and then realize how many people don't have clothes that could pile up dirty and still have more to wear. I complain and then realize that some people don't have a home that could have a dirty closet.

It's just nice to blurt out some of those things to really help put things in a better perspective sometimes. I will make it my "mission" for the next few blogs to be about nothing but POSITIVE things!!
