Mommy needs a time-out!

I am such an introvert that when things in my world are in chaos, I get depressed and can't seem to recharge. Right now my house is just a mess, making my whole life feel like chaos.... but the good news is we are about a week from it being finished! (Hurray!!! and pics soon)

I sooo CAN.NOT.WAIT!!!

I hate not having a place that I can go "hide"... My boys are very loud people. Most boys I have been around are loud and noisy and busy and it wears me out! But right now I can't get away from them for a "time-out" or anything. So I am just stuck in the loud, noise and business. Oh and don't get me wrong, I love the noise and enjoy it being here because if it was gone, I would so not be myself but I really need that downtime to recharge and refresh myself.

I feel like I am on the edge of just collapsing or crying or both. I'm exhausted all the time, edgy and I feel like I can't relax.

But very soon, very, very, VERY soon! I will be able to hide a little. I will be able to lock my door, climb in bed and just relax.

You have probably noticed I have been quieter, not commenting much on your blog (or yours or yours or yours).... I am truly sorry. I just do not have words right now. It has taken me days to just get this short little post put together.

Anyway, soon I hope to be back to normal and back to writing and commenting.

I can sympathise with the loud boy environment and it's definitely frustrating when you can't find a place to decompress.

I hope you are able to find some "mommy time" and recharge your batteries in time to enjoy your fresh new place.

Soon the chaos will all be over!

Awww...I don't have kids but I can completely understand the "introvert/needs quiet recharging time" part. If I don't get my alone/quiet time regularly, I feel like I'm about to fall to pieces. I'm sending you quiet, relaxing thoughts! I hope you get some downtime soon.

You sound like me. Although my loud "boy" is my hubby and a daughter! I, too, need a place to hide and have my special time. I hope you get it soon. Congrats on the house almost being done! Can't wait to see pics!

I feel your pain. Even though my 4 boys are much older, they are still loud. Add a hubby in the mix and it gets really bad, especially when there are amped instruments involved.
I can promise the chaos just comes in waves, some much bigger than others. I hope your wave is ending soon.
Sending hugs and peace your way.

I can also sympathize with 3 boys! Luckily, I had a little peace last week as me and my hubby celebrated our 10th anniversary at a restaurant. He surprised me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from and we danced all night.

Of course the next day was back to chaos and a messy house with my boys!

So sorry you are having a hard time. Maybe you could try standing on your head. My yoga instructor says that cures everything:)

Feeling any better yet? I do hope so. :)

Thanks, y'all. I am not really feeling better exactly but getting there. Work is so busy that I can barely breath! Heading to Cali tomorrow.

The house is nearly done too!

Just saying Hello on this Veterans' Day. I believe you spent some time in the military, so THANK YOU for your service!
