I’m so tired

Today I am so incredibly tired.  I had a terrible night sleep, a job interview in the morning and a busy afternoon.  I’m just exhausted and achy and not in the mood for anything.  While emailing with a good girlfriend, I just started making a list of all the things I am tired of.  By the time I was finished I actually felt SO much better!  So, here is my list and some of my favorites from hers.  I really encourage you to make your list. It’s like blowing off steam.  I would love for you to post your list in the comments section too!

Here goes…

I am tired of…

Figuring out what to eat for dinner
Making breakfast
The dirty carpet
Getting my hand in Oliver’s poo poo diapers
The constant fear of SIDS
My loud white trash neighbors
My husband's annoying traits
Not sleeping more than 3 hours
Worrying about the bills
Being a fat post partum blob
Having nothing to wear
Postpartum acne
Not having a girls night out of wild and wickedness
Not being able to drink too much and hating myself in the morning
My feet and back being sore ALL OF THE TIME!
Cleaning the house and most of all bathroom
Not having a career I love
Constantly working at having a good attitude
Complaining when I know it could be so much worse but not really living my life that way…
Forgetting how temporary everything really is.

My girlfriend’s list…

300 cable channels and NOTHING to watch on TV
Asking my husband to start the dishwasher in the morning
Seeing clumps of cat hair and cat puke throughout my house
Being a wife
Buying lottery tickets and never winning
Not being able to get a massage every month
Never having any money
Worrying about everything!
The price of gas
My husband leaving work late everyday

Seriously, having a bad day?  Give making a list a shot and see how you feel.  

The real test I suppose is then figuring out how to eliminate the list all together…
