The ultimate frustration

You know what's worse than lacking the energy/motivation to do something? Actually having the motivation/energy and not being able to do it! I had grand plans for this morning. I was going to get up and leave the kids with Avery while I went grocery shopping and then take them over to my neighbors house while I tackled the back bedroom that will eventually be the new baby's room. But even the best plans can be ruined by an unwilling husband. Avery stayed up late last night so he slept in this morning. Which meant I had to postpone grocery shopping until I could take the kids to the neighbor's. By the time I was home again it was time to make lunch and I had to pick the kids up. UGH, so frustrating!! And, of course, the kids are fussy and clingy today so I'm having a hard time even getting little chores done.

So today I was wishing I had the super power of replication. You know, so one of me could play with the kids while the other one did my chores. Only, I really need a bigger and better version of that can reach things and lift heavy objects and rearrange furniture without hurting herself. *Sigh* Anyway, I still hope to get to that bedroom tonight, but it's only 7-o-clock and I'm already feeling drained. Not good.


  1. Ah we've been in the same boat. Another sunrise with a New Day today:) You have a lovely blog.

    God Bless

  2. Emily Kay, is this really appropriate? Protect your marriage... Don't disrespect your husband publicly by dragging your frustration with him into your blog. Be positive! I can almost guarantee you your problems would be more manageable if you would complain about them less.
