You know how you have those days when you just want to throw a pity party, even though you know you need to put your big girl panties on? I've been having that week(s) .

I want to mope and then I pull myself out of it.

I want to just curl up and sleep and then I crack a smile.

I want to feel like we're the only ones who live stressful lives and then I remind myself we're not.

I think that this is normal for winter and lack of sunshine, but a part of me wonders if there's something different this time. It just seems to be hitting me harder this year.

I'm tired and ungrateful and grumpy.

And I hate that while I know these things, I'm basically unsuccessful in shaking them off.

Because we have a  pretty sweet life. With amazing boys. Too many jobs. A warm house. Food in the fridge, most of the time. And I'm reminded daily, just how happily married we are.

There's not much to be upset about.

:( I hope you can figure out the culprit soon. Believe me, I've been there more times than I can count.

Oh man, I find myself on that ride too lately. Not being able to shake off different moods and emotions. I'll be praying for you Leah! You're an amazing woman!

Hang in there, girl, we all have days like that. At least you realize how good you do have it, despite the icky feelings sometimes.

Come on, spring!!!

Hey Leah - sometimes life just seems a bit harder and tries to beat us down, inch by inch. It's ok to feel this way. Hope the rest of the week gets better for you :):)

Maybe there's something in the MN air this year because my husband has been the exact.same.way. for about the last month.

Hope the sunshine comes back (in more ways than one!)

I have days like this too. It's just overwhelming. But, it's OK to feel this way, too. And clearly, you see the blessings :)
