I need a break

I am in need of a break.

Time off.

Desperate need.

Great desire.


These last few weeks I have been just...blah. I mentioned how I was climbing a mountain here, and then in all it's craziness I had one good and beautiful day here.

Well, that day came and went. I still have little energy and not to be a cry baby, because I know others have it worse, but the nausea is unrelenting. I know I mentioned it before here, but seriously...

I am just not functioning the same. My house is a mess. I am so behind on laundry, YOU HAVE NO IDEA! It's bad. Real bad. I'm sure in the next few days (like tomorrow) my husband is going to wake me up with, "babe, do I have any clean underwear?" And my response..."Do you see the mounds of laundry everywhere...probably not since you haven't attempted to clean it either!"

So...all in all I have decided that I need some serious chillaxing. I need time away because my patience with the boys is thin.


I need just a few days to rejuvenate and reprioritize and just not be needed! No chores, lots of sleep, no crying from anyone, especially me!

This is my new project.


I will google. I will search. I will find something close, but cheap, but exactly what I need.

So...the search begins.

For more stuff to be tackled, go here at 5 minutes for mom.

I'm with you-I so need a break from the routine!

We're going to my in-laws for Memorial Day. Not exactly what the doctor ordered, but I'll take it. I'm that desperate!

A thought...while DaHubby has been able to take a "guys only" weekend the last two summers, we (read that as *I*) haven't had a *real* vacation since I was pg with my now four-yr-old!

So, we were thinking about tackling family camping this summer a couple hours away but that just made me tired THINKING about it! LOL And, we're on the Dave Ramsey debt-reduction plan so not a whole lotta money to go anyway!

But, I saw in out Sunday paper that a tiny village only 20 minutes from here converted an old playgound to a CAMPground! Hmmm...a night or two away but not too far from home?

I'm calling TODAY to shceulde the weekend between DaHubby's spring and summer classes! LOL

Hope you can find something similar! Close enough but far enough too! Hang in there!

I hear you! I am also in my first trimester (3rd baby), and some days it's all I can do to stand up and move slowly. Today feels like a rare day where I can function, and I pray that you feel somewhat normal too.

Hope you find somewhere nice to escape!

oh girl! I so know what your going through. Im pregnant with our 3rd (now into 2nd trimester) and I thought I would NEVER get out of the 1st trimester. I LIVED on the couch- my house was sooooo overwhelming (ask Kristen- I cried about my house-a lot!)
but it does get better-- hey and could be theres a little girl swimming around in there-they say you feel worse with girls (could be an old wives tale-but you never know!)

A vacation sounds really good right now. I hope you can find something for yourself. Let me know if you need any ideas (I'm a travel planner). Good luck!

They may not believe it, but men are capable of doing a load or two :-) I used to make J. do a lot of the switches because our washer and dryer were in a scary basement - he survived!

Hope you can find a good break place!
