Day 2- Showering!!

I've been pondering on where I want to be in life and I'm not getting very far. I want to live up to my expectations of years past when I said "I'll never let myself go". I want to be the person that I think I'll be once all my New Year's Resolutions have magically changed my life. Wouldn't that be easy? If you could just say you want to change and be changed? How am I going to keep my house cleaner, spend more time enjoying my kids, get our finances in order, shower, AND get all my reality shows in!? Why is it that I don't have a "job", yet I can't accomplish half of the things some working moms can? Do get-most-of-it-done-Moms literally never sit down? I'm trying to remember that anything can be accomplished in baby steps.

Babysteps... I had a late night watching Suze Orman (financial babysteps!) and only fell asleep around 1:30. I couldn't wind down after the shorts fiasco that consumed my whole day. I woke up at 5:30 am and tried with no avail to fall back asleep. Finally at 6:30 I decided it was time for a shower. I rarely shower in the morning as I hardly ever leave the house and usually shower before bed. Because of this the mere act of me showing woke up the whole house. Awesome... now I'm wet, have sucky hair, and 3 cranky kids to feed. I whipped up some oatmeal (I'm too lazy to even heat the water- I just run the packet contents under hot tap water) for the kids and did my hair. It's amazing how the blonde highlights pop when they're CLEAN.

I actually did leave my house today, so that usually involves pant not meant for sleeping or yoga. I threw on my dirty jeans (don't judge me!!) and headed out of the house. It's not even lunch time yet and I'm showered and dressed! A banner day for Mrs. Wright...

I mean this in the most loving manner, but girlfriend you need some help. Any family in the area? A girlfriend that can come over and hang with her kids? How 'bout hubby? Is he seeing you and what's going on {or should I say not going on}.

The no showering, not leaving the house and not being able to enjoy your little things in life {i.e. kids} are all very common symptoms of depression. I've been there. I'm really not trying to judge...just trying to help. You can always e-mail me if you need a friend :)

I hope your life gets better for you.
