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!
