Getting out of a Funk
Yesterday if you stopped by, you probably read I was feeling kind of crabby. Today I've been feeling a bit better, and after spending some time at the park with the kids and having a chance to vent to one of my favorite mommas I now feel much better. Then I thought if I share with you guys I will probably feel even better then I do now.
Yesterday when we got home I was fine, but then I had some errands to run (that ended up being useless) in the pouring rain and just got into a funk from there. I came home and looked in our living room with all the piles of clothes and stuff from our trip and just started getting irritated as I tripped over toys and bags. Our house is tiny and when it is cluttered I realized it stresses me out, so I try to keep it organized for the most part, but sometimes with 3 kids and when you just come home from vacation that just doesn't happen.
I think I mentioned that about a year ago we had our house on the market, but no one was even looking at it and our realtor wanted us to just keep lowering the price. Unfortunately there was only so low we could go. After a while we just felt it wasn't worth the stress to keep it on the market. Our neighbors was for 2 years and they just ended up renting it a month ago. So when we first realized we were going to have to stay here for a while, maybe a long while I was upset, this was just suppose to be our starter home. I eventually got over it and tried to make the most of things, but I still have moments where it bothers me.
Trust me I know many people are in similar situations or even worse and I don't have much to really complain about, but sometimes it's just nice to vent. Plus with my period coming I know I am super emotional. I went two years straight without my period, since I never had one between Declan and Rory now they just seem much worse then I remember.
Now I am just trying to remember all the wonderful things I have to be thankful for and focus on that because I know in the grand scheme of things the size of our house really doesn't matter it's the people in it.
