It's just been one of those days

You ever have one of those days that you would just like to crawl in bed, curl up in a little ball, and go back to sleep.  Today has been one of those days for me.  Maybe it's because I have only had 2 hours of sleep but you would think your husband and the kids would get that.  Not in my case!  I snapped at "the hubs" and A & E have been super cranky.  I got a cortisone shot in my bum knee yesterday and instead of feeling just a little bit better, it feels worse.  The girls have been super clingy and want to crawl all over me, and even though most of the time I enjoy all that love, today I just want to be left alone.  Selfish, I know.  I know that the girls are cranky and clingy because they are cutting their back teeth.  I'm trying to love on them and spend some floor time with them but at the same time, my knee really hurts.  How can I give 100% to my family when I, myself do not feel 100%?  I know that I shouldn't be complaining because I could have it much worse.  So as much as I want to wallo away in my own sorrow and want my me time, I know that I can't do that. 

A lot of people on my facebook page always post the awesome things their kids did or say but the days that I like this, I'm just glad that I have survived it so far.  I cooked a really great dinner for me and the girls tonight.  The Hubs is at work and I just pray that he has a good night.  Maybe tomorrow will be better!


  1. I do hope your knee is better today. The feelings you are having are normal. At least I think they are normal. LOVE you

  2. It should get better. Remember that A & E are still little.....The Hubs gets it too.....Take it easy. We don't expect perfection, we expect survival. So, if you survive til the next day, your mission will have been accomplished.....
