If it makes you feel any better, one of my common weeknight refrains is "mommy needs 5 minutes, okay? Just 5 minutes! Please!". My poor kids.
I hate having to say that. It's almost as though I can see the words falling out of my mouth I want to scoop them back up and swallow them whole...except I really need just 5 minutes, or thirty five? I just want to BREATHE!
This week is much better already, but it feels like it HAS to be Friday tomorrow, not WEDNESDAY! Still last week was just awful-sauce. At least this week I feel half human again.
Sad to say, but it really does feel better knowing I am not the only one. Thanks!
I wear my stress on my face, and my high heels take the brute force of my frustrations as I pound the halls and stairwells of the school. Every step is taken with purpose and resounds with my ire. I have one pair that are positively worn down to nubs and I only just had them resoled about three weeks ago!
I feel like I could be so much less stressed if I could dress like a man...no thinking of color coordination, or which heels hurt the least, if my hair would look better up or blown out and down with the outfit, just roomy loafers, wide cut trousers, a shirt that doesn't pop open between the buttons no matter how fat I get or how much my boobs swell in a given time of the month and a pretty tie to top it off. Apart from being supremely boring, it would reduce my 5:30-6am stress levels by about 200%!
