Week in Review

This week has been hard for me.
I think that coming into it already overwelmed set me up for a not-so-great week.
I haven't gotten enough sleep all week long.
My house is a disaster.
I spent all week catching up on the laundry.
I'm whiney.
I've been snippy with my children.
All I want to do is sleep for a week or two.

I realized this week that THIS is how I was for *3* long years, when I was working overnights at Walmart. I was tired. I was overwhelmed all the time. I was NOT a nice mom. I had to appologize to my kids.
Over and over again. Because they deserve to have a mom who is THERE, with them, not yelling or snipping or angry with them all the time.

So, I HAVE to get more sleep. And I don't know how that is going to happen.

At least I FINALLY found someone to work out with! We go to the gym twice a week, so far. Hopefully this will help me lose some of this weight that is creeping back up on me. AND, this should help me emotional health. I HOPE.

And this next week, I HAVE TO find a dentist, and an eye doctor. And a counselor.
Finding a new counselor scares me. Because I need someone to talk to NOW, and sorting through them to FIND the right one is time consuming, and emotionally wearing. I REALLY miss my last counselor...the one from Montana. The GIFT from God....I am sure I won't find another like him...but I can hope!
I think I am going to go take a nap until I have to get more kids up....

Wouldn't it be great to really get to sleep for a week straight? I could certainly use it! My boys let me sleep in today....too bad its a school day and they ended up late because of their random act of kindness! Little snots!

Oh, dear. I do hope you get the rest you need soon, and that your search for a counselor match is very short and successful.
