Feeling down

>> Monday, May 24, 2010

I'm feeling down but depressed seems too extreme to explain it. I am trying to keep up with everything, but being pregnant just really takes way too much out of me. No matter how hard I try to act normal and do fun stuff with my kids I end up exhausted.
I can't figure out how to balance everything. I want to play with my kiddos, but if do the housework doesn't get done. On the other hand if I attempt to do housework I end up grouchy and snap at them.
I have a wonderful friend who cleaned my house from top to bottom while I was away and I am so grateful!! I love it when I have a clean house and I know that if I could do a little every day it could stay that way, but how do I balance the little energy I have between housework and playing?
So needless to say I am feeling down on myself today, I want to be able to play, clean, sew, and garden, but since Dec of 2004 I have been either pregnant or nursing a newborn. I know God has a plan for me but really is this it? To be completely sad and frustrated that I am unable to complete my duties as a wife and mother?? I am trying to cling to Jer 29:11 p, but on days like today I find it hard to understand how these plans are for my good and not harm. If u r reading this please pray I will stop feeling sorry for myself and figure out a way to find balance in this season of my life.

I just want to say it's normal even though it doesn't feel like it. Nobody is perfect and there is no perfect mom. Come over right now, my house is a mess because I played with the kids and worked outside. I will either stay up late or get up early and clean. I sacrifice my sleep for a clean house. THAT is not normal. Do what you can, when you can, and don't worry about the rest. Your health and sanity is more important than a spotless house.
Or turn your kiddos into little slaves like I did with mine and have them go around with their little baskets, picking up toys and junk. Make a game out of it.
