So far, my blogging hasn't been consistent...so for now my goal is to get to one blog a week. This is my one blog.

Now that I am a stay at home mommy, I don't leave the house hardly ever. Last week...from Saturday evening to Saturday morning the next week I was only out of the house for an hour, and that was to a PTA meeting. By Friday of last week I was a depressed mess!!! I was so zombied out that I could hardly lift my arm to grab the glass of water that my hubby was handing me. Taking care of River was about the only thing I could handle, and by the end of Friday that was even getting difficult.

So...you would think that I would get my butt out the door and do something, but instead when I get like that...the thought of getting ready to go out seems like such a HUGE feat to accomplish. Showering, make up, hair, picking out clothes, nursing River, changing him, getting the diaper bag ready, making sure I have my purse, making sure I have enough burp rags on hand for my acid reflux baby... REALLY??? I have to do ALL this just to take a check to the bank and stop at the grocery store? Doesn't this seem excesive? Doesn't it seem more logical that James (who works over 40 hours a week at running our business) could just stop by the grocery store on his way home, or take a check to the bank on his way to work?

Yes, it seems logical that is the easy answer...BUT the reality is...that I must force myself to leave the house every couple of days for a scene change, otherwise I will go crazy, thus driving my family crazy.

So...on that note, I am putting down the laptop for a few hours and going to utilize nap time to make myself look presentable, just to go to the pharmacy and pick something up. I hear the sun is shining today. Maybe I should check it out?

********Ok, funniest thing happened as I was pushing the Publish button on this post*******
My doorbell rang, and wouldn't you know it, I am still in my pj's!!! So that means that I don't answer the door....I forgot the furniture people were coming to take a look at our fireplace. Not entirely my fault because hubby set up the appointment. I tell ALL people who are coming to give me a heads up call just in case I am nursing. So I had to run downstairs, throw on some clothes and run up to let them in. Hair a mess, no make up...teeth not brushed. Another reason I should get up and get ready in the morning?!!??


  1. Oh, the occupational hazards of being a SAHM. It can get depressing...you're not alone! :) This is why I love BLOGGING and FACEBOOK. They are my connection to the outside world that I rarely visit!!!

    Maybe you should plan a trip to K-ville sometime...I've heard there's fun stuff to do there. Wink.

  2. I am hearing your "wink wink", and I would like to say that YES! I am on my way...get the coffee brewing! But I am thinking this week is shot. We MUST put something on the calendar and make it happen!

  3. Reflux may trigger the baby to cry but in order to prevent it, there are ways to follow such as keeping the baby upright after feeding, using wedge pillows and trying not to lie the baby after feeding. In a way this can help to stop the baby crying.
