I'm Struggling......

I feel like every day is a struggle. I struggle to get out of bed, I struggle to find something to wear, I struggle all day at work.......but most of all, I'm struggling at home. I don't feel like I have the time (or energy) to get anything accomplished. By the time I get home from work I struggle to get dinner made, only to eat it and then have get ready for bed. And that doesn't even include the days when I have errands to run after work or simply want to take a minute to visit with family.

I'm struggling........Where are the days when I would get out of work, get home in time to make dinner, get the lawn mowed, water the flowers, and take a walk....all before the sun went down!

I'm struggling........I'm not ready for the change in season. My days are becoming shorter and shorter. I can barely get home with enough daylight to accomplish anything.

I'm struggling........I need life to slow down. I need to take some time out to accomplish everything that's sitting on my "to do" list. I need to take time to relax, to enjoy the moment.

I'm struggling........

Amy Jo - any possibility of moving up your wedding? Seems like you've been planning for so long and it's still in the future quite a ways, you have to be stressed about that. Maybe if you got married sooner, you and Don could get on with the mundane, everyday living of married life. LOL

Just a suggestion - hope you can reset your attitude. I know what ya mean though - this MI weather is the pits. It's too early to be so cold and wet. UGH

Bev, of course I remember you!! Thanks for your comments.

As far as the wedding goes, we have already moved up the date once and to be honest...the wedding isn't even one of my issues. I've had a blast planning and pretty much everything is done for now, so we are just patiently waiting (and saving money).

I think my biggest issue is the weather and how it makes me feel every year about this time. I go through this "attitude" change each fall when the weather changes and then eventually I get used to dealing with it and it goes away.

I hear you!! I am going through the same thing right now. Hang in there!
