Conversation #69: Feeling Overwhelmed but glad it's Friday

I feel like this season of life has just been overwhelming for me and many people around me.  It blows my mind at church just how much everyone seems to be going through.  There isn't any one thing for me, but just life that is busy.  After this weekend, the next three are packed!  I'm either out of town or hosting people (or both).  It is all good stuff, but just a lot.

I feel like I lost all last weekend with our plumbing issues and then my foot and then our dog got a urinary tract infection.  I honestly don't know how y'all do it with kids.  I always ask my mom that.  Where does that energy come from because right now my husband, my dog, and myself are about all I can handle.

Looking back at the way I started the two paragraphs above, I think I might feel too much.  I actually got irritated with my husband a couple of nights ago because he kept telling me he thought I was off (female translation: emotional, unhinged).  I actually wasn't and felt very okay, but it seemed that I couldn't convince my husband of that and his incessant response of saying I wasn't okay drove me to not being okay.  Does that happen to anyone else? 

It might have been just a few weeks ago when I was telling people that not much was going on, but I kind of like those times. I like when I'm able to keep the house cleaned, spend time reading without feeling guilty, and just be.  I'm looking forward to the warmer weather, but now that means I better get out in the yard to get that cleaned up.  The vitamin D will probably do me good, though.  However, I must say that this weather transition of cold in the morning and warmer in the afternoon is making it hard to get dressed.  I love boots and jeans, but I think I'm ready to pull out the sandals and dresses (with no tights).

I don't have much else for this Friday.  I'll try to be a more exciting blogger again.  I have done some projects around the house I want to share, and I think I'm sort of finding my way back to my blogging voice.  Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me on this journey :)

Ditto! I feel the same way...so busy, but then I really want to be just relaxed and able to do some thigs I really enjoy without feeling guilty. I haven't sewn anything in a month and a half!!!
