So...the question for today is:
HOW DO YOU MANAGE YOUR HOME WHEN YOU DON'T FEEL GOOD?
AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE.
I am terrible at asking for/accepting help when I need it. I can alway rationalize that I am ok & that it's probably not as bad as I think (read: I'm probably being a drama queen).
As mothers, we carry a huge load.
Seriously, our homes kinda just run to the ground when we are gone or otherwise out of commission. It's not that the family doesn't KNOW what to do or SEE what needs to be done.
They. Just. Don't. Do. It.
Sometimes I alternate between being aggrivated about having to tell my peeps everything & just telling them, and getting over it.
Ok, so when I'm not feeling up to par...
1. I ignore the idea as long as possible, hoping that it's a figment of my imagination.
2. I pass out hints that I'm not feeling great, hoping for some divine (or otherwise) intervention.
3. I finally accept that I can't do it all, crawl to my bed & hope for the best.
Sometimes I get help from outside the home & sometimes I just dump it on my older girls, feel guilty, try to assuage my guilt by throwing privileges or gifts at them when I feel better.
When all is well & the sun is shining in my part of the world, I just clean up the mess...and thank the good Lord that I rarely don't feel good.
