Anyway, moving on. Loveys, you know those days when you just feel discouraged? That's been me the last couple of days. For several reasons, I've just been having a few down days. I know the sinus headaches and tiredness haven't helped. Also, the kids are going through a "Mine" phase where we're having to really work at sharing. It's a constant thing. I just feel like there hasn't been any peace or quiet in my head for days. You know what I mean, moms. When the only moment of silence you have is when you're in the shower. But today my sis told me something brilliant. I was telling Sara about being down the last few days and she said, "You can only do the best with the energy you've been given." I started laughing at the sheer truth of that statement. It should be stitched on a pillow or something.
I usually counter discouragement with gratitude. If I'm being thankful, I feel less discouraged. But sometimes it just hits you and you spiral. And that's where I've been. Spiraling. I'm going over to a friend's house tonight for some girl time, and that's probably just what I need.
That and chocolate.
Oh, did I tell you I cut my hair? My bangs were driving me up the wall, so it was either trim them to a point where I can stand them, or forever wear a headband to hold them back. :)
