Big sigh

I feel like a big whiner but the last couple of weeks have been kicking my ass.

The babies have given up easy bedtime. Kiernan has decided it's time to start testing all of his boundaries. Teeth are coming in and that makes everyone cranky. Mornings aren't running smoothly so everyone is stressed out and I just can't seem to make myself get out of bed earlier to help things get going. Oh, and did I mention my grandmother died last week (something we expected since she was 95 and her health had been declining steadily, but the emotional reaction and the lack of time to deal with it is an interesting circumstance as well).

I need to push myself a bit harder to do things like chores when the babies are sleeping or I have no kids attached to me, but it's so hard. But living in a sty sucks too.

Anyways, wah wah wah. It'll get better and I'll start feeling a bit less out of control soon, but for now... grumble.

I find it impossible to motivate myself to do chores should I be lucky enough to have both asleep!! You're not the only one. *hug*

I am sorry to hear about your grandmother (even if it was expected). I can totally relate to the sty issue. At 4, Ada is reasonably good about picking things up when we ask her to, but then there are the rest of us making a mess too...

Hey, I love you. Would it help at all if I offered to foot the bill for a one-time cleaning lady visit as an early Christmas present for the W family?

I mean, I'd offer to come clean, myself. But I'm only available on the weekend, and I figure that wouldn't be convenient timing for you all.

I think a little grumbling is good for everyone. Just getting through the day sometimes is an accomplishment. Hang in there!

I don't think you are a whiner.. who are you whining to? I don't think anyone would think you are a whiner. There's only so much you can take.

I can totally understand how the few peaceful moments you have to yourself, you aren't thinking: Great! Time to clean! Go ahead and grumble if you need to. We are here to listen.
