Frustrated. . .

It is very difficult to meet everyone's needs right now. I think it's normal to feel this way, but I'm feeling a little inadequate when it comes to being a wife AND a parent. They are both full time jobs and if I'm doing a good job with one I feel like I'm not with the other. How I WISH I were perfect with both. It makes me realize how much I need the Lord because I really couldn't do this on my own. I am very thankful to have such a wonderful husband and 2 precious children---even though at times it wears me out.

It will get easier!

I hope everyone is feeling better--and you are getting more sleep by now??

At least you can be honest about it. Seems like most people feel uncomfortable opening up these kinds of things. So thank you for sharing. (and feel free to do so again if you need to!)

Props to you, Shelly, for feeding both your kids in Luby's! I could not have done it. Seriously. I don't think I would have even attempted. You go with your bad self!
