Ever had one of THOSE mornings?

I had one this very morning! I woke up mad at the world and everyone in it. I can't tell you why. Maybe it's "that time of the month" or I woke up on "the wrong side of the bed" either way...


I was angry because...

We only have ONE bathroom and EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I am in there for anything I am interrupted.

Jase didn't want to get dressed this morning so I showed him with a spanking and ruined his morning too.

My boots kept sinking in the stupid mud because my yard is ALWAYS wet and muddy.

I have 3 stinky bags of trash in my van because since we moved we have NO.TRASH.PICKUP.

I forgot my phone so I had to trapes through the mud TWICE.

I have a run in my pantyhose (yes it matters even if I am wearing pants).

I want ONE day...just ONE day...to clean my house from top to bottom and then another day that I can rest! Just rest.

I want to be able to go buy something without worrying if it will overdraw our account.

I.WANT.A.HAIRCUT. and not a cheap one from a stranger. I want to go to Seventh Ave Salon and let Shany Holcomb shampoo, cut and style me.

I want supper to cook itself then clean up its own dishes.

I want today to be Friday.

I want the monotony of life to STOP and the spontaneity to kick in.

I want to go to bed and start all over!!!

More than anything else I am angry because most of you read my first sentence and assumed that I didn't count my blessing before I got angry but I did.

I sure did and I am thankful. I am grateful for my family, my house, my life, my job, all my second chances and the wonderfulness of the Father but today...today..


and you know what? I will get over it because tomorrow is a new day!

Time to link up again with Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday. It's so easy. Grab the button, blog for 5 minutes and share!

Let's go...

Afraid...when I think of that word I automatically think about literal fear. Fear of spiders, the dark, heights, etc but let's get real right now.

What am I really afraid of?


*someone finding out that in June of 2009 I did the unthinkable and until last year, what I felt unforgivable.

*not being accepted

*my kids not being able to succeed in life due to my lack of parenting skills

*being alone

*not ever having an intimate relationship with Jesus

*never letting go and truely worshipping my God

*speaking up (I know to some that is a funny statement but trust me, when it's important to me I HOLD BACK)

Well, there ya have it. Some of my inner fears that I hate owning up too or even admitting.

Anyone else have these issues?

Time's up!

Happy Friday
