Exhaustion: the Perpetual State of Parenthood

I am just wiped out.

And my head is doing the pre-migrane tango.

I kinda stink at the motherhood/homeschooler gig today.  Or, you know, this week.  On the homeschooling front, I didn’t have my normal prep time this last weekend so I decided to take advantage of a a review I am doing of Time4Learning.  I have an opinion, but I’ll save that for another post.

I have added nothing too it except Bible and reading.  No fun crafts.

But I hit homeschooling pay dirt today–Sue read me a book.  A Biscuit Book.  She only needed help with two of the words.  She knew or sounded out the rest of the book.  It gives me so much hope.  For those who have been reading along, I have stressed and fretted over Sue’s reading.  Today, I saw progress.

Now, before you get too excited, it is not the book that requires me to dye my hair…but it is a step closer.

And the motherhood front?  I am just beat today.  My hubby is the one who has been working his butt off and here I am whining about being tired.  Yeah, that makes me a putz, but it doesn’t make me any less tired…

My brain is tired.  My head is tired.  My eyes are tired.  My legs are tired.  Get my drift?  Yup, I am beat.  Work-outside-the-home, stay-at-home-mom, it doesn’t matter, by Friday…exhaustion sets in!

Survive til you Thrive!

  1. Sorry you’ve gotten so overwhelmed lately, but Yay for Sue’s progress! Prayers for peace and endurance for you.

    • Thank you. The days have been long lately and the bipolar swirl gets complicated. Sigh. But I will do ANYTHING to make sure my girls don’t suffer because of me. I will take whatever stupid meds and do all the therapy to protect them from me.

      You are brave and a great example. Thank you for fighting my friend.

  2. But my friend – she READ YOU A BOOK! :D

    Score! Win for Mama!!! Yes, win for her, too, but you get me – right?

    ((huge hugs))

    • I know! I am uber excited. And relieved it wasn’t the book required for me to dye my hair, but I bet that one isn’t too far behind. My older one took off once she got that first Biscuit book!
