monday miseries

I have been feeling so out of my element lately, especially in the last week... I feel like I am in one of those "When it rains, it pours" periods. So here I am on this little blog of mine to write and get it all out...

+ Gemma has been teething again for quite some time. Blah blah blah, I feel like this is all I ever talk about. But to be fair, teething really changes our happy little girl into this little bear of a person we are not familiar with. Last night, it took me 2 hours to get her to sleep. Today, I spent about 2 hours between naps and bedtime trying to get her to settle down and go to sleep. She wrestled me and pushed away and cried for a while, even though she was rubbing her eyes and she was definitely overdue for a nap. Poor thing is just so uncomfortable...

+ Also, Gemma is extremely frustrated as she's on the brink of crawling and is wanting to be on the move, but she just hasn't gotten there yet. She is working so hard and progressing very quickly, and I know it's only a matter of time, but hearing all the growls and whines that come out of Gemma start to wear on all of us! {The teething probably doesn't help her mood either}

+ Last night, we found a bunch of moth larvae {read: tiny little worms}. I didn't eat dinner and felt sick for the rest of the night, as I am sure Bry did as well {he cleaned the pantry while I rocked Gemma for two hours..} We got rid of all of the food, cleaned the pantry, and I'm going to buy more moth traps {as we've had traps up for a while and we're not sure why this happened}.

+ My dad's mother, Naunney, had a heart attack yesterday. This was not the first time this has happened. She had to have a stent put in and is in the hospital recovering. This whole situation really just sheds light on how precious life is and how one moment can change your life. Praying for my Naunney, my dad and the rest of the family for strength.

+ I've also been personally been going through a phase where I'm trying to do it all {keep on top of everything at home, keep up with friends, keep my baby on somewhat of a schedule, and balance working from home and working out of home}. I've been feeling stretched a little thin lately and it's discouraging when I feel like I can't do it all. But sometimes I have to tell myself that I am doing the best that I can and that not everything needs to be perfect.

+ And I'm currently slowly consuming a whole tin of Altoids. I should be eating the Ghiradelli brownies we made last night {the only thing that was spared from the larvae- blughhhh} with some vanilla ice cream on top.

Did you make it through that?? Probably worst post ever, but sometimes life happens and it's not always perfect. I found this on Pinterest and I love it...

I need to remember this more often! Happy Monday's-almost-over!

  1. So sorry to hear about your Naunney. Heart attacks are super scary (my dad has had many so it's familiar territory and I feel for your family)! You're right it definitely puts things into perspective.

    Don't worry about doing it all—that's not your real job. Your real responsibility is to be a loving wife, mom and friend (which you are). There's a difference between that and getting every little thing done. Plus when everyone starts having kids they'll be running to you and the blog for advice! :)

    And this wasn't a bad post. I'm glad you've been writing again! :)
