Tag Archives: purge

I am really sick of this nagging thought in my head. I’m hoping that if I write about it, I can at least begin to purge it from my thoughts and get rid of it all together. 

What I truly feel: I work hard. I am a mother. I am an artist. I am a volunteer. I am a friend. I am a daughter. I am a wife. I usually don’t make a single cent from any of this. Someone very close to me refers to some of this as ‘bulls–t.’

What nags at me: I need time away from the mother part to do some of the other parts. In order to get that, I need to pay someone to take care of my child. If I don’t make any money from this other stuff, how can I justify paying a babysitter?

What I truly feel: I deserve the time to do my own thing. I don’t need justification. 

What nags at me: Someone close to me and possibly other people don’t always agree. And I wonder if I really do deserve it. 

What I truly feel: Tired of second guessing myself and a bit depressed. 

 

Unplugged, Unglued, and Over It

Unplugged, Unglued, and Over It

Add throwing and hitting to this list and you’ve pegged my daughter the last few days. The only thing she can’t do is walk on the dog, only because we don’t have one. She finds plenty of other ways to be destructive and harmful.
I’m sensing that it’s time for a toy purge…less to throw and destroy.
