Okay

I try to keep things sunshine-y.
Usually, it isn't too hard.
But, I am just feeling blah today.

Normally - I can fake it until I make it.
Slap on a smile soon enough it is real.
It is just today, I don't feel like it.

I feel like I have been pushing forward,
but ending up right back where I started.
Round and round and round.

Feeling sick and then getting a colds.
Whining and crying...
the monsters snotty noses and my snotty shoulders.

We need milk again?
Clean the floors for an hour, and they are food splattered in minutes.
Didn't I just wash this shirt?
How did it get so late?

So that is it...
my mini pity party.

The monster is up from her nap.
So it is time to get over it.
Pulling up my big-girl leggings over my growing belly and smiling.

But hey... she did take a nap.
It really is all okay.

Joining: This or That Thursday

And on a side note...
Love getting mail?
The good, not bill type of mail?

Check this out...
A mommy mail swap.
I am excited.
It really is the little things.

We need milk again, too. But the girls are eating quietly and watching Cat In The Hat, so I am able to quickly send you a note saying how happy I am to have found you and your slice of the www.

It really is the small things that keep us going.

Hang in there mama, definitely know where you are coming from!

Adrienne said...

....we hardly ever need milk any more! But there still seem to be an unending number of repetitive chores that manage to get under my skin on "those" days. I hope the cloud clears soon ~ it's ok to give into the blahs every once in a while! Sending a virtual hug your way!

Pity parties are totally acceptable. I have them often. ;) Hang in there, girl. Hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

i love this post... so vulnerable. and yup. we've all been there, "round and round"...

but it's part of the bigger track... all the sunshine-y things that come with it.. the baby hugs, the belly laughs, their accomplishments and triumphs.

so wear those leggings well, and when it gets rough, remember this too shall pass. {all too quickly} :)
