Week 26
~ Stressed Out . . .

This week has been awful and I feel mentally exhausted! Let me clarify that nothing is wrong with me or the baby; it's all related to my job. The scary part is that we are approaching our busy season and I know it's only going to get worse. The further along I get the shorter my temper is and that's not a good combo for my job and its busy time of year. Every night this week I've gone home completely drained and all I want to do is sit there. On top of that I'm an emotional eater, so when I'm stressed or tired all I do is stuff my face. Not a good combo at all; I just feel like this disgusting fat body that lays there like a slug. I've tried to leave work at work and just enjoy the beautiful weather and play with Tanner, but my attitude is horrible. I let things consume me and then I end up crying out of frustration. Can you say slightly imbalanced? Or just normal considering the changes your body goes through during pregnancy.

Fortunately I'm off tomorrow, but it won't be completely relaxing. I'm having a garage sale this weekend with my sister and we have a ton of stuff (i.e. crap) to price and set up for Saturday. We have a birthday party to go to on Saturday afternoon for my niece, but that is something that won't be any work for me . . . and I'll get to eat cake (see I told you I have issues). Dereck has been so patient with me and just reminds me that 'this too shall pass' and that I need to let things go. I'm trying, I'm really trying!

Last night after we gave Tanner a hair cut, we took a few pics and made some silly faces. This picture is the only thing that got me through today!

Silly

Well, I guess that's enough of my pity party and I hope to have a better attitude next week. I hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for letting me vent.
