A Bad Case of the Mondays

Warning:  This is one incredibly whiny, venting, post.  You have been warned.

This is how I feel today.


Today is one of those days.  Yes, THOSE days.  The kinda of day where your husband walks in the door, asks how everyone is, and you reply..Just be glad, we're all still alive. 

Despite doing it numerous times before, Greta completely forgot how to do subtraction with borrowing.   I even looked up a video on Khan academy and had her watch it.  Yeah..that made it even more confusing.

Heidi, for some odd reason, decided to do a history chapter that was 8 chapters ahead in her book of where we were, and didn't notice that she was suddenly learning about a whole new time period???

Everyone is suddenly completely incapable of doing any school work without me walking them through every.single.thing.

The UPS guy came and woke up Elsa.

Our schoolbooks are falling apart and missing pages because the kids just throw them on the ground..despite how many times I tell them to treat them carefully.

My patience level is incredibly low right now.

Due to allergies, food intolerance (gluten and probably dairy as well) and being poor, I've cooked every meal from scratch for the last oh..2 years...and darnit, I just want to freaking order a pizza and not have to worry about dinner for once.

I think I'm sugar crashing after a week of major Easter candy indulgence..which is NOT helping my mood.

Elsa keeps biting me...and grabbing stuff, and destroying whatever she can get her hands on and throwing a fit if you take something away from her.  Yep..my 6-month old is throwing fits.  Fun times.

Job searching is going..not so well and I'm starting to panic and freak out a bit.

Elsa has the most screwy nap schedule ever and will not nap ANYWHERE but in my lap or in the sling.  And, now she's refusing to sit in the stroller without screaming and I have to put her on my back in the sling.  Let me tell you, she's lucky she's so cute.

Hmmm...what else?  In good news...as I said...we're all still alive.   And, tomorrow is Tuesday, which means it's not Monday...which means it has to be better than today..right?

I'm linking this up with Mindful Mothering Mondays which I discovered through my friend, Amy's blog.   This post is not nearly as encouraging or happy as those are though..so go over there if you want to read something more uplifting.  I think I've only hit on the trials and struggles part.   I'm feeling more maniac than mindful at the moment.  Oh well....tomorrow is a new day..and thankfully despite this terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day...not all days are like this...not even in Australia.

  1. Oh man, if you didn't have days like this, you would be abnormal!

    It sounds like you need my one-two punch for a guaranteed mood lifter, do you want to know what it is? 1) Confession 2) Date Night. Works like a charm :)
