One Minute Inside A Woman's Head

Welcome to this woman's head.

Things have been crazy. I don't know if I am coming or going anymore. Things HAVE GOT to slow down a bit. Hello Lord, are you listening up there? Mama needs a break, some time off, a nice bubble bath, SOMETHING.

  • I went to 4 days a week to spend more time with my daughter. Turns out my job is still a 5 day job. I am totally swamped and can't even begin to be caught up. Do I tell the boss from hell? No thanks. I'll ride this one out because I am afraid they'll put me back on 5 days.

  • School. Oh school, how you are driving me nuts too. I want to be a Nurse. I do NOT want to be stuck in this English class for another two months. Seriously. It's not even English. It's called "The Elements of Argument" and they classify this as English because we write paper. And stupid papers they are. I've got an A++ in the class and I find myself day dreaming constantly instead of reading that 800 page book. They seriously make an 800 page book on arguing. And how did the writers not kill themselves of boredom writing it?

  • If I have to fix my car one more time this year I might scream. Yes, I need a new car. But mama doesn't have that kind of money. I'm in the middle of re-doing the room, we've got cheerleading, we've got everyday bills, and the car thing is killing me here. I tried to spend my morning at Panera Bread on Wednesday to have a cup of tea and read the above mentioned book. But the car broke down in the parking lot. But $184 later and an oil change, she was back on the road.

And that my friends, is one minute inside a women's head.

P.S. I figured out that my only alone time each day is in the shower first thing in the morning. Wow, I get to spend 15 minutes by myself each day....at 4:45 a.m. Even the roosters aren't awake yet. Where do you get your alone time at? Or are you like me and have about zero alone time?

I can't believe you get up at 4:45AM! I feel like I'm gonna die when the alarm goes off at 6:30. And only 15 min in the shower?!?! Girl, You DO need some time. That's it, when I come in for Thanksgiving we are going to get you away from all of that!!

I hope you have family and friends you can count on for some down time, or alone time. You are such an awesome roll model for your daughter, a woman determined to succeed. Succeed you will, hang in there, you can do this. Are you attending the bloggers night out? Maybe, that will give you some more you time?!

Ohh to get that 15 minute shower by myself, but I just cant get up that early, That is incredable! I was thinking about this a few days ago and I definately agree with -chrissy- that you are such a amazing role model for your daughter! And that is what it is all about right?!?!? Sometimes, I tell myself that And I am thinking in my head that it just sounds like a line to me, to its funny how all the crap happens and the kids are always thinking everything is great and how "fun" it was to be on the side of the road ( my kids actually ask me if we could do it again).

Alright. First and foremost. Will you people stop have blogger nights out without me! *snif* Make me cry.

Secondly. I know, dude. I KNOW! I tell to solve the problem by staying up late for some me time, but processing the day with 4 hours of sleep is no picnic. And I'm mean to everyone. gah. It's a vicious cycle.
