Haven't Cared..

Lately I haven't cared much.
I haven't cared about the laundry
haven't cared about eating right
haven't cared about exercising
haven't cared to lose the baby weight
haven't cared about the ring around toilet
haven't cared about making my bed with my cute bedding
haven't cared about organizing my kiddos toys
haven't cared about the up coming holidays that I need to plan for
haven't cared about what outfit Tess or Seth choose to wear that day
haven't cared about the fact that as soon as I wake up in the morning all  I can think about is how and when I can get a nap in
haven't cared about MONEY, I'm sick and tired of caring about it
haven't cared that I haven't wrote one stinkin thing in Scotty's baby book
haven't cared that I have not done a plaster mold of Scotty's hand... which I have done with my other kiddos
haven't cared about cleaning out the dang hamster's cage.. which is starting to make my son's room stink
haven't cared if Tess is getting to the Halloween candy... again!
haven't cared to volunteer in Seth class much this year
haven't cared to take my kiddos to get flu shots
haven't cared much about my calling in church
To say the least... I think I'm in a little funk..... This is not me. I am usually running circles around my life, on top of everything. I want to care about the little things again. I'm just so tired, always tired. I want to care, how to I get there????

I think it's the time of year. I'm feeling the same lately too.

Hmmm...this sounds all too familiar! But I'm sorry you feel this way, I'm sorry you're in a funk. Let's do something fun, cheap, and without kids...that is bound to cure you a little.

I know all too well how you feel. Having our third has put me in and out of a funk all year. Every time I feel I'm back on top something new happens or we are back in AZ for some kind of event. My advice and maybe it is for me too is start with something you know you can tackle and keep not caring about the other things until you have mastered that one thing. Good luck.

You ask how do you get to the point of caring. I know for me, when I was where you are now....looking back, I realize it was a season of my life. I've said this before, I will never forget the Mother's Day when I told John, ALL I wanted that day, was to sleep. That's all I wanted...and that's what I got, and it was absolute heaven for me!I promise, you won't feel this way forever...even though it feels like you will! I don't have any answers on how to get out of it, but even admitting is half the solution. Good luck, Tiff. You ARE a great mom.

I have been feeling the very same way. I wonder what it is. All I want to do is sleep.

I think it's just called stress and putting a little (a lot) too much pressure on yourself. :) I'm sure just making the list of everything weighing on you helped. You're amazing to even have all of those things on your "need to care about" list.

It sounds normal. Like you said you are a mother of three and wanting a nap as soon as you wake up sounds pretty normal. I want a nap and I just have one child. I think you are doing great.
