Its just one of those days. One of those days that creeps up every so often. It starts out days before usually manifesting itself in my frustration with a messy house. I am amazed at how much my life plays out like Bill Murrays life in Groundhog Day. I feel like I clean, straighten up, clean some more just to sit down at the end of the day to a messy house.
I sense the level of frustration rising as I feel unappreciated for all that I do (a small pity party for myself)and I find that it steals just a little joy out of each day.
So those little moments of frustration mount to days like today. These days (hopefully I am not the only one who has them) I feel like I bit off a little more than I can chew with my commitments to projects and I feel like I need to call a Realtor and upgrade from this 1400 square foot house that we currently run 3 businesses out of and raise 3 boys. I feel like I am treading and barely keeping my head above water.
Thankfully I am a big picture kind of person and I know that this too shall pass and soon my house will seem like a perfect fit for us, projects will seem easy and fun again, and I will trade in my water treading days for the lazy back float.
But in the meantime, I find my center in my kitchen. Baking bread, making soup, and knowing that this is just another day in my life as a mom who really truly does love it so.
