Burned Out

I've been feeling pretty burned out the last couple of weeks.

I think it's partly because I had some stressful things to deal with lately. Those things are resolved now, so in that way I'm feeling better. But that was only part of it.

When my house is so messy that I don't even attempt to clean up because it just seems like too big of a project?

When I'm so behind in my blog reading that I start hitting the "mark all as read" button?

When I'm having a hard time mustering up enough motivation to do anything except sitting around watching movies with Wyatt (well, Wyatt's playing with his toys, not watching, but you know what I mean)?

Yes, those are all signs that I need a little break. I've been telling Derek this past week "I need a vacation!", knowing full well that it's not really an option in the middle of January.

I need to clean my house. I need to start getting ready for Wyatt's first birthday party in a couple weeks (how is it possible that it's been almost a year?). I need to go shopping for my sister's shower and work on a couple of the gifts I was wanting to make for her. I want to work on those "get-to know-you" posts that some of you have tagged me for! I'd like to make a little dent in my pre-second-baby list. I'd like to have time to bake something this week.

So, I'm taking a little break. Part of me is feeling more in-control this week and doesn't think I need a break, but if I don't take my break now, I'll start feeling this way again in a couple weeks. I need a catch-up week, so that's what I plan to do - just catch up on everything.

For any new visitors, please check out my tabs above, and check back next week!

Hope you all have a happy fourth week of January!

  4. You take that break, lovely lady! Sometimes you just need that. These past few days I have let myself say "i'll get to that another day" which is something I rarely do. And it's good. Hope you enjoy your change of pace :)

  6. Enjoy your break! I get like that sometimes too, as a mom you try to do it all, sometimes you just can't and you need to take a step back and focus on yourself for a minute or two. I hope your break helps you feel refreshed!!

  8. Girl, that's why my blog posts have been so scattered and random and few. Because I've been burnt out and trying to get my life back in order. I totally understand...so take your break!

  10. Enjoy your break! I feel like I may be on a permament break with Elyse...will I ever get caught up enough to not just click through most all of my blogs and not even take a second glance?

    Hope you're able to make some serious progress on your to-do list!

  15. You sound almost like an echo of my own feelings late! I have had trouble even facing all the myriad projects that need to be done around our home.....when you have struggled with real depression for over two years as I have, it makes it that much worse. However, I find I am blessed every time I do get myself to complete even one smaller task around the house and then I try so hard not to focus on the "big picture" in the sense that if I see the entire disaster area, I will give up entirely.....if I can break it down into bits to be conquered, I find I can be more effective. Well I just poured my heart out there didn't I? LOL All to say, I am with you and I hope and pray you have a great week "catching up" and recovering from being burned out! I am trying to do the same, with God's help! :)

  16. I know exactly how your feeling! Take a break, it is good to unwind and disconnect for a while. Get back in touch with your family and yourself and with God.

    enjoy your break!
