Funk

I have been in a bad funk for a few weeks. I blame it on the weather....or the kids....or my injuries...anything but myself. I just can't seem to pull myself out. I am ornery, unhappy, and have been involved in multiple pity parties for myself. Pathetic I know. I have a great life, but this dang weather with combination of 5 kids that can't go outside, and my increasing chubbiness is dragging me down. See, there I go again....

Yesterday I called Trent and told him as soon as he walked through the door I was walking out of it. I had to escape and escape I did. What better way to cheer someone up than unlimited ice cream cones.
I know....my chubbiness issue is all my doing.

I had a great night eating at Jason's Deli, doing returns (always fun to get money back!), browsing the stores, and having girl talk with Kimmy. It was a much needed night for me and I will have to say today was a much better day. Here's to another good day tomorrow.

girl friend, i know the days. i am just too chicken to post about them on my blog. usually.:) and i am recently becoming more acquainted with what it's like dealing with injuries too... i guess it's what we curvy girls get when we try to keep up with the skinny chicks. anyway, here's to ice cream! i'm pretty sure in heaven ice cream will be a weight loss aid.

Sorry about the funk. Call me next time to go out... I am usually in one too! :)

Oh, I totally know the funk that comes from injury! I love ice cream. It cures everything. ;)

Sending hugs your way...

Just so you know, I think you are wonder woman. Your task as a mother is overwhelming, and so despite those days where it does just get to you, you cannot discount all of the good that you do for your family each day. I see it, and I'm just a distant observer. You're amazing!!

Oh, and here's some good news: the weather is supposed to be lovely this weekend. That brightens things up for me, at least!

I am always here if you need someone to vent too. I feel the same way. I have been in a funk for the last while too. It sucks. Remember you can dump your kids over here anytime. I am NOT joking. You need a break, bring them here. I am always home and my kids would love someone besides their brothers to play with. Also if you need someone to go on walks with, or whatever. I am always available. We mothers need a break every once and a while and I am more than happy to give you some relaxation and peace. Call me anytime. NO JOKE!

As long as you don't smell like funk, then you're okay by me.

Hanging out with you was pretty dang fun and you know that whenever you need something (venting, shopping, multiple ice cream cones), I'm your girl.

I think you are so awesome Amy! I love how honest you are. We ALL have those funky days (haha!), and sometimes a little time away can make all of the difference. :)
