I am a lot of things.

Tired of politics.
Sick of messes in my home.
Frustrated with my 4 1/2 year old that changes clothes when he gets home from school and throws all of the clothes that I spent 30 minutes putting away on the floor.
I want to stay HOME one morning, drop my kids off at their rooms, and go home to drink my coffee.
I am tired of rushing all of my children out the door and giving the baby dry cereal in the car.
My kids are off schedule.
They are waking up at 6:15 a.m.
You would think this would help us be on time.
It hasn't after Monday.
I am in a funk.
I like teaching, but today, I was in tears before I left for work.  Just trying to get shoes on and in the car.
I want to plant flowers like I normally do.
Clean house and enjoy it.
Cook a well-balanced meal two or three times a day.
Have a clean car.
Exercise.
Do my Bible Study.
Have lunch with friends or coffee or both.
But somehow, those are not able to get done.  
Today, I am in a funk.
Maybe you are too.
So, I will do the next thing.  I will need the Lord to help me enjoy the next thing.  Because right now I don't feel like it.

Shew...wee! I sympathize with you. I understand that things are never done.
Peace, sweet one.

Andi,
Sorry you have had one of "those" days. I can remember how exhausting teaching can be and that was before I had children! Hang in there!

Oh...praying for you!

And on a different note, I too wonder what Sarah P will be up to in four years? And I passed a sign on my way out of town a few days ago that was HUGE and read:

Drill Baby Drill
Sarah
You're Darn Right!

Maybe in four...

Ok, hope tomorrow is better.

I think it's time for a sub for a day! Do you have those in preschool? You need one! I can't imagine... absolutely can't imagine carrying the load you are carrying right now... and I know you love your job and love to teach! I'll be praying that the Lord will restore you and give you the time you need! Love you!

Bless you my friend! I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, joyful weekend!

Oh Andi! I'm sorry you're having a tough day, but you're absolutely right to look to the Lord for strength when the world gets you down. Just to give you a view from the other side of Mommydom (my kids are all raised), give those precious boys a hug, tell them how much you love them, and smile at the remarkable blessing the Lord has given you. He's chosen you to raise part of His flock.....what a privilege! I'm gonna pray that the Lord will give you peace and a little more time in the day.
EXTRA ((hugs)),

Love You!!! You are doing a great job, I know. Take some time to rest during Thanksgiving, if possible. It is not very far away. I pray that you will have time to do some Bible Study and refresh your soul. I need that too this week. I am frazzled and haven't been in the Word. It makes me feel just sick, along with just the hormones that come with being a woman.

16May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
(2nd Thess 16-17)

I am behind b/c I'm just now reading this. Anyway, even though I don't have kids, I can totally relate to feeling that way on most of those things! I can't really put it into words, but I feel ya!

I had one of those days on Thursday. Part of my problem was I kept projecting to all the stress AHEAD instead of just dealing with what was on my plate at that MOMENT. He never gives us more than we can handle...although I did look at Jeremiah on Thursday night and said, "I think I am having a nervous breakdown." Praying for you this very moment!
