This whole post is clouded by the fact that it’s the end of the semester, which is an extremely busy time for me. I am severely sleep-deprived (even more so than usual), my health isn’t the best right now, and since I’m so busy, I don’t have my usual mental-health benefits from exercising. But even knowing this, I am just feeling really tired and discouraged right now. I just don’t understand why everything has to be so hard.
Things that are WAY more difficult than I ever anticipated:
Getting the girls into the car and buckled into carseats
Getting the girls ready for bed
Getting the girls to go to sleep
Doing ANY household chore while the girls are awake
I’m just tired of feeling like I’m CONSTANTLY struggling with someone or something, be it a toddler or a car seat strap, a sippy cup lid, or the top of the humidifier. I’m plain exhausted, and I don’t know when I’ll ever be able to get enough rest to NOT feel so stinking tired all of the time.
