So Tired It Hurts
Do you ever have those days where it feels like you're dragging around the weight of the world? You start in the morning confident and positive, thinking: "this isn't so bad, I can handle it." Later, toward lunch time, the kids start whining for food and they're being so rotten you just want to put them down for naps without eating. When they do finally go to sleep, you're just so relieved and tired, you don't even want to eat. As the day wears on, that pain in the back of your head works its way solidly down your neck and creeps through your shoulders. You force yourself to eat, try some caffeine to see if it will help, but nothing does. You can barely move now because the world is heavy, and you are small. It doesn't help that 3 little ones keep hanging on to you. I love my family - I really do, they are my treasure on earth. But, these days make it hard to remember why. I think it's time to put the world down, let someone else handle it for a while, and get my husband to rub my shoulders. If he's not too mad from when I snapped at him a while ago...
