I know I'm stressed when...

Let's celebrate Working Moms Wednesday!

There is a small handful of people who might find some irony in my previous comment...you know who you are.

I know I'm stressed when...

I realize that my diet consists mostly of junk food, Diet Coke, and coffee.

I cry.

I make other people cry.

The thought of taking a vacation makes me tired.

I refuse to look at my to-do list because there is just too much to do.

I find Jake's socks in my drawer, Rachel's diapers in our closet and my coat hanging on the back porch.

All of my conversations begin with, "ummmm...ahhhhh...."

I can't sleep at night because my brain won't shut off.

I find myself praying that the Domestic Fairy will come along and fold my laundry, take the trash out and cook meals....and I catch myself actually thinking that such a thing could possibly exist.

I throw everything on my desk into one pile so it appears to be less overwhelming (since it's taking up less desk space).

and...of course....

I blog when I should be working.


  1. I totally relate. Couldn't sleep last night. My desk is covered with papers. And I'm blogging and reading blogs. Good luck with Wednesday, or as it is affectionately known in my house - "Wine Wednesday"

  2. oh yes. and as i'm reading all the WMW posts, i'm thinking about the million things i should be doing. when i'm stressed, i feel like crying and i often get short tempered. praise God who forgives!

  3. If you find that fairy send her to my house.

  4. Yes, I refuse to do my to-do list...too overwhelming I can totally relate to this post.

  5. Oh I am with you on the crying and the fairy!! I need one and I need it now! I don't look at my to do list either it makes me crazier...I just can't look at one thing at a time I look at it as a whole and think I can't get all this done so I just give up and do NOTHING....ughhhh:) Great post!!

  6. I'm not a mom, but I can only imagine. Popping in from SITS to say hi!

  7. There is nothing like a good cry when I'm stressed!

  8. Oh my word, I read your whole list going, "Yep, that's me...that too...and that..." Love it!
