Do you ever feel...?

Do you ever feel like there is not enough time in the day?

Do you ever feel like you should be able to lose weight after one really good day of exercising and eating?

Do you ever feel at a loss for what to make for dinner?

Do you ever feel like you should buy a months worth of socks and underwear so you don't have to do laundry every two days?

Do you ever have a thought only to forget it a split second later?

Do you ever wish that if you could just get what's in your head on paper you'd have a best selling novel?

Do you ever feel like you're getting worse not better?

If you ever experience any of these, you're not alone. I feel them on a daily basis.

That's why it's important to have people in your life you can turn to when your feeling like this. Talk to a blogging friend, your spouse, your BFF, or your mom - you can always depend on your mom (well, hopefully you can).

To my American friends happy Martin Luther Day. To everyone else, happy Monday

I vote for, especially, #3. Oh if only someone else could plan and make all the dinners, life would be all that much sweeter :)

They all sound familiar.

I often think of something only to forget it moments later. I've become a skilled note taker. Sticky notes everywhere.

Ha! Oh yes. Been there a few times! Well, I hope you have a great week anyway!

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Yes yes and YES! :P Have a great week!

LTM said...

Yes yes yes! Ahh, all these negative messages. It's true to have family and friends to turn to, and I find so much support from the blogging community. ((hugs)) Hang in there! You are getting better~ <3

Susan R. Mills said...

Yes on all the above! I'm glad we are not alone.

Abby Minard said...

Yes on all of those! I hate doing laundry so I actually did buy Little Monster some underwear on our way to a sleepover because I hadn't done laundry and all her underwear was dirty, lol.

Definitely for the dinner one!!!!

I hate sorting socks, so I tend not to do it as often as I should. My kids have learned to find them in the sock hamper. My husband has learned to cope by buying what I swear is a year supply of socks, judging from how many pairs end up in the pile. Sad really, considering how easy HIS socks are to find in the pile. Not like the boys' socks.

Think of all of these...so frustrating but always good to know I'm not alone.

Martin Willoughby said...

Do you ever wake up, knowing that there's something important going to happen and you can't remember it?

Thank heavens for friends, wherever they are.

I'm with Wendy, notes have become my life. In 2012 I've purchased small calendar that allows me to track everything I have the possibility for forgetting. It's lightened my 'brain' load a little, but those are still things I feel.

It's nice hearing I'm not the only one that feels in just a second I could BLOW.

I think I can answer yes to all of these.

Always good to have lots of support and especially when you can count on true friends.

Heidi Willis said...

Every single day.

All of these.

I love that you are always so honest. I feel like we are kindred spirits.

Robyn Campbell said...

All of them. Every. Day. I know I have you, pal. I love ya. You know that?

And with six boys and a hubby a professional toilet cleaner would be nice. Real nice. :-)

Jolene Perry said...

Oh, yes. SO with you. Fab post.

Carolyn V said...

Oh my gosh! I feel all those things!
Aw! that just makes me love you even more Patti! I'm so glad I'm not alone in this. ;)

Nancy Thompson said...

yes, yes, yes, no, yes, yes, no.

And I could not agree more!

Lynn said...

I feel these ways many times. Today, I must add disappointment. Thankfully I have friends who always call! :)

alice said...

Yes to most of those.
