Stumbling Blocks

For the last few days I have tried to think of something positive to post. Unfortunetly with the stress of work, feeling overwhelmed that my housework is falling further and further behind, daily life with kids who (until the last couple of days) have had cabin fever and are at each other all the time, and then finding out today that Dave is going tomorrow to an undisclosed location (more than 2 hrs from here)to cover a branch for the next ten days for an undisclosed reason; I'm not in much of a positive mood. These are the times that I often feel like rolling up in a ball, pulling the blanket over my head and only come out when the storm has passed. However, because I am a mom, wife, employee, etc. I can't so I pull myself up by my boot straps and start putting one foot in front of another. Eventually I will overcome the feeling of being overwhelmed but until then I will just hang on for dear life and hope that no one steps on my fingers.

I'm sorry!! Life just stinks sometimes!! But its just a small test of how we'll endure it and then hopefully it'll blow over. Hope things go better for ya the next few days!

I'm sorry Sara. I wish you could see my disastrous house right now to make you feel a little better! I guess I better stop checking out blogs and get some work done. I don't know how women handle having husbands gone all the time for work! Hope Dave comes back early and that you take a nice hot bubble bath and enjoy a good book or movie! Give those cute kiddos a hug for me (and Dave when he finally gets home)! Love you!
