Is there ever a span of time where you have nothing to do but be a mom and keep your home? A time without ALL the extras pulling you in another direction. Perhaps I am just getting tired. I see my rag.a.muffin children running through the house, in dire need of baths. My baby wanting to be held and played with, yet her lot right now is the floor and some toys. My little girl being fussy because she is not getting enough momy time, and apparently girls need lots of momy time?!? My kitchen and bathroom needing that extra scrub, and lets face it....keeping up with this home and its contents and occupants is a full time job in itself.

I am enjoying seeing things pull together. Watching walls turn into what I have wanted them to be for what seems like forever. Seeing floors clean and new. Tying up loose ends. But I am still tired. I take on such huge tasks, because.well.they.have.to.get.done. I have to do them! I cant wait to get back to my regular scheduled duties. Maybe Rob will be more available in a few weeks as well, and it will lighten the load. My super powers are running low. Sometimes I think is all this really worth it, yet it has to get done. We could sell the house as is for about 20,000 less. Yet with some extra work it will be worth so much more. Simple work really....but theres just one me. SIGH!

Oh, Audrey - don't listen to that last commenter!

You were just sharing your exhaustion - why do anything in this life that will bring weariness - a job outside the home, scrubbing the toilet, working on bills, taking a long walk... because we either like to, or we must! I admire you for desiring to fill this world with young men who will be good husbands and fathers, and young women who will be good wives and mothers - we could use millions more of these. :)

I understand, and I've said a prayer for you, sweet friend.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
