Do you ever have one of those days?

I think I cheated. I convinced myself that popcorn popped on the stove was ok... Because I can have corn and oil. And because I am feeling a little blegh.

Do you ever have one of those days where even though you try, it still isn't enough? Those days where you run errands on your lunch, stay at work a little late to get things done, care for the dogs, make dinner while holding your baby, feed your daughter, eat standing up, unload the dishwasher, attend to your baby, give her a bath, play silly games, answer "what's that", wrestle her to get jammies and a diaper on, care for her raw rashy heiny, read books, pick up the cabinet contents that were emptied on the floor... And it still isn't enough?
Because you still haven't finished cleaning the kitchen, you made too big a mess making dinner, when you were sautéing it splattered on the stove, you still haven't gotten to the rest of the toys strewn about the floor... and despite all you have tried to do, you still end up disappointing.

And now you feel a little down. And so you make excuses... And instead of feeling end up disappointing yourself too.


  1. You are doing great

  2. Yes. Or was that a rhetorical question? It sounds to me like you did all of the IMPORTANT things that needed done and the rest will wait. :)
    Keep at it Amy. YOU can do it!!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement!
