The Mommy Wall

Yes, you read correctly. I have officially hit the "Mommy Wall." Its that terrible place where the kids are sick, too many projects, not enough hours in the day/month to get them done, the house is a mess, laundry piling up, binge eating (I've made a few batches of Puppy Chow, from the back of the Rice Chex box, and have eaten most of it myself), sleep deprivation, the need to curl up in the fetal position and hide in a closet until the husband comes home. Yep, that's me right now. Oh and did I mention bursting into tears at random moments for no apparent reason? Oh yeah, its been a long couple of weeks.

That's why I'm taking a small break. I need to regroup. I need to get this mountain of laundry under control, I need to finish about 58 projects (some for friend's baby's that have already arrived), I need to get my kids healthy, I need to get myself healthy (and the binge eating under control WHOA!!!), I need to just BREATHE! I will return and be more focused in a week or so, but until then, I am signing off. Don't worry, I will be ok, and the kids will be as well. Just need to slow things down, makes lists and set some different priorities and also put showering on a daily basis at the top of my list, yeah its gotten that bad around here! Talk to you all in a week or two.


  1. Sending you lots of happy thoughts! Hopefully this week will be just what you need to get life back on track...I have been there...utter craziness!!! When you come back swing by my page and tell me what the heck puppy chow is!!!!!! :) Hope the kids are feeling well soon.

  2. Hope everything works out! I hate that overwhelmed, helpless feeling; you're smart to take it easy for a little. Good luck with everything!

  3. Oh I have been there. It was so bad once that I hid in my room behind my bed and cried. I even had to call my DH and have him come home from work a couple of times. I hope your kids get better and you can take some time for yourself (even if it is just a shower).

  4. Hi, I hope you are getting caught up on all things and taking that breather! I just came across your blog and I love it! you have so many great ideas for projects! I hope you come back soon! Take care!


  5. I somehow missed this post, and I was starting to get kind of worried because of how long it had been since we'd heard anything from you! I'm glad you're taking a break, I hope everything gets settled!!
