ARRRRGGGGG!!!!!!

I was about to have a full on vent session on how this is the worst Sunday ever**** how I spend all my non-Lydia time cleaning and the house is still a disaster*****how Lydia spends at least 30% of her waking time screaming and crying***** how I made the most awesome lunch and she wouldn't touch it (and of course Shane is always at late at church so he isn't even home to eat)**** how no matter how badly I want to nap, I can't because it takes me a full hour to fall asleep so by the time it actually happens, Lydia is just about to wake up*****how I actually went in my room and screamed just to release some frustration***** how there is laundry piled up to fold because I had 7 loads on Friday and I just couldn't fold it all**** how I am jealous of all my friends because they have family around and I just want one day to say "Mom, come take Lydia so that I can have an hour or two to myself" instead of cramming in a random post at the beginning of her (short) afternoon nap. *****

Hum, guess I did do the whole vent thing. Don't feel a whole lot better though. Really wishing I had some chocolate right about now.






15 PEOPLE HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY:

Still searching for chocolate - if I can't find any I am hitting the Diet Coke. (The full caffinated "only in emergencies" supply.....

You can take me up on my offer and not even feel bad. Just ring my doorbell today and drop her off and leave and feel better. Sometimes that is all it takes. I think sometimes I just need something different and this will give you alone time with Shane. Those are much needed also. I spent many years without being able to hand my kids off to mom and now I try not to abuse it but man she helps me out a ton.
Scattered Mom said...
(hug) Have a bath, with a nice glass of wine or something, and don't worry about the laundry or the house. It's not like they're going anywhere and really, none of us get points for a perfectly clean house. I didn't have family around when Jake was that age, either. It's hard sometimes!
LOLiTA said...
Aww, hun. This is a hard stage, and even harder without family. The laundry and stuff can wait til tomorrow. Kick up your feet and relax, or go for a drive with Lydia. I declare this to be a lazy day. ~Esmeralda PS. I found your blog through Krisit's.

One of THOSE Sundays huh? You know you can always drop her off at the house of crazy boys! I can't promise that she won't learn something that you don't want her to though. . .like how to fight ninja style! I am going to Sam's in the morning. Is "THE" cake calling your name?!!! It's close enough to your birthday to start celebrating anyways!!!
Natalie Jane said...
Oh "That" cake is ALWAYS calling my name. Email me details and we will see...
April said...
yes drink wine... um- I know exactly how you feel- with a crazy child and no mom anywhere close... your feelings are more than valid- some days just suck.
Christine said...
Chocolate would be nice. :) ((hugs))
Are You Serious! said...
♥ I feel for you! I haven't had family close by for 7 plus years of my kids lives! It sucks and sometimes I dream about what it would be like! I hope your week is much better!!! :)
kailani said...
Sorry to hear the day wasn't going well. Hope it got better!
Randi said...
Mercer told me today, "YOU ARE NOT BEING MY BEST MOM EVER!!!" Followed by "TREAT OTHERS HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED, MOM!!" Not my best weekend, let's just say. I bought a tub full of chocolate chip cookie dough to make it all better. No oven required.
Randi said...
NOT an overshare. I actually posted mine, read yours, then went back and deleted mine. Mine was too much. Yours :funny. :)
Elizabeth said...
Natalie All I can say is that I understand.
xcdenke said...
PLEASE CALL ME NEXT TIME!!! We can vent together. It probably would be good for both of us. I swear, for me it never fails that when one kid is happy, the other one isn't. Keane is my sensitive one and I have to be really careful about him. Ethan is always picking on him. The big kid gets bullied by the little guy. Funny huh? Thanks for venting. You always seem like the perfect mom and it's nice to see that even you have your rough moments.
Jennifer said...
I hear ya girl! Good to know that other people have tough days like mine too every now and then. And, I definitely know what you mean about family!
