I am SO Frustrated!

July 11, 2012

I understand that everyone procrastinate’s sometimes, but right now I feel like the little red hen.  I am cooking the meals, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, mowing the yard, doing my homework, working long days, mowing the in-laws yard, getting the packing list together, doing things for church and keeping my mom on track.

Last night I found out that even though my in-laws made me a promise, they have since made vacation plans and will not be able to accomplish anything.  I just wish that they could be reliable!  I am reliable in hosting their family holiday’s in my home, shoveling their sidewalk and driveway after each snowstorm (sometimes in dress clothes) and mowing their yard in the sweltering heat.  This is the first time that we have asked for more than 2 days of help and they are bailing.  Just REALLY annoyed with the whole thing!

And while I am not so naive that I think our marriage will always be sunshine and lollipops I am ESPECIALLY worn out this week with having to ask 3, 4, or even 5 times to get anything done.  This week I wanted to get homework done, get a pedicure and prepare to relax.  Instead I am MORE stressed out than ever and more ready for vacation than I can ever remember being….. and so frustrated and annoyed that I could spew a list of words that would have made George Carlin blush, may he rest in peace.
