So, it is Sunday, what should be a day of rest. My husband enjoyed the extra hour of sleep-I was awakened early to Drew heaving in the bathroom. He's not sick. He just didn't have his allergy meds last night. If he misses them, he ends up coughing in the morning to the point of throwing up. Just ask anyone at his school. He did it 3 times last year-during all school Mass. This time of year is kind of hit or miss with the allergies. Sometimes he needs the meds, sometimes he doesn't. Spring is much worse.

Where was I? Oh yes, overwhelmed. I am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment. My house is a HUGE mess. I have laundry coming out my ears. It is mid afternoon, and I feel like the day has flown by. After Mass, we ended up meeting my in-laws for lunch. Then we went to the mall. Now the day is mostly gone, and I feel totally overwhelmed. I have so much to do I don't even know where to start. Maybe I should start by not procrastinating on the computer writing this post.

I know exactly how you feel...that happens to me most weekends. Get what you can done and feel proud of yourself for accomplishing that!

I am right there with you. Even on the coughing until throwing up. SIgh. Layton does the same thing-I am trying to get him on medication, but at age 2 they say there is not much they can do.
I should be doing housework right now but here I am blogging!!

That's what Sundays are for, relaxing and putting aside all the stuff that needs done. It'll still be there Monday morning.

Now it's Monday morning and it still is all there. What am I doing? Blogging, procratinating, and I can't use Sunday as my excuse :)

Aw honey, I so know where you're at. If I lived close, I'd be bringing you a Starbucks cider and come help you with your laundry! :) No, really, I would!

And posting your feelings is a good thing because even if it's just getting it down on your blog, you're letting it OUT!

I always feel that way after Sunday Mass - like our house went thru an explosion - the feelings of frustration I think are the devil's way of getting your focus off of just having received the Eucharist. Just my two cents.

Keep on keepin' on - you're doing the next right thing whether you realize it or not! :)

I hate when I feel that way about my house. Thankfully it got straightened and pretty much cleaned up this weekend :D
