getting my A$$ kicked

Monday, April 28, 2014

I want to blog. I want to read blogs.
I want to take time and write something thoughtful, true and somewhat funny. I don't have the time.

I want to sit down for 5 min and not know I could/should be doing something else (folding the MASSIVE pile of clean laundry in the laundry room, putting away dishes, washing the floors, dusting etc etc etc).

Being a working mom is freaking kicking my ass.

Seriously, who on earth is able to balance everything? Not only do I feel like Monday to Friday is a nonstop rush, I feel like I'm not doing anything well. I don't have enough time to make proper food, to spend quality time with mini-me or Mr. B, and I'm so tired that I feel like I am a space cadet at work.

I've been told "you'll find your groove". Well, week 2, day 1 and I'm not feeling very groovy. As a matter of fact, I feel like I got hit by a truck (mini-me's party from 1-4am may be factor here).

Will I really find a groove? Or will being in a rush become the new norm?

This is more of a rant than anything. I KNOW I need to try and find the time on the weekend to prepare for the week. I need to menu-plan, meal-prep, clean and do laundry and do whatever else I can't manage to do during the week. But I wanna have fun on the weekends darnit! I want to spent time with mini-me and Mr. B and ENJOY it.

Bedtime for me, as I'll likely be an unwilling participant in a party starting at approximately 1am. Weird, all night parties just don't sound fun anymore...

Dear sleep: I miss you more than you'll ever know.
Dear mini-me: you're so lucky you're stinkin' cute.

P.S. If any of this doesn't make sense, I blame lack of sleep. It's a legit excuse and is messing with my mind. For real. Crazy? Don't mind if I do.

me looking tired and angry... must have more caffeine!


  1. It's no fun, trying to find a happy medium...I've been struggling with constantly since Willis was born in 2007. Take one step at a time.

    1. glad I'm not the only one! And I only have one... I seriously have no clue how people do everything. I guess I'm not as good of a multi-tasker as I thought!

  2. you know it's super hard to go back to work! If you can afford it get help! Like have someone come clean your house every other week, then at least you know you're house will get cleaned every other week at the very least! I think the most important thing to keep in mind, is that mini-me is going to remember you being there, not if the house was clean or the laundry was done. So don't beat yourself up about it, try to figure out one aspect of getting organized and then move on? I know I appreciate all the help we get around our house! And I hear ya on the sleep thing, coming from someone who went to bed WAY too late (midnight), then was up from 1:30-2:30am and then was up for work at 4:30am, boo!

    1. OMG Sarah I could NOT function going to bed at 12 AND getting up for work at 4:30!
      I love what you said about her not remembering if the house is clean or laundry folded! So true!


Love hearing from you!
