I really don’t know what’s wrong with me lately. Maybe it’s the stress of my job or the fact that I can’t seem to get caught up on stuff at the house? I have just been in a terrible mood the past few days. It’s getting to the point where not even my wife wants to talk to me. It’s beginning to be a real problem.
Sometimes I find that being a husband and a father is hard. Like really hard. Making the tough choices for your family is not easy. Being the cook, housekeeper, playmate, fake kitchen customer, lover, friend, and banker can be enough to make you want to to scratch your eyeballs out. I have to say that I do love my life but there are times where I just want to get in my pantry and close the door and just cry.
My parental friends don’t see this as a weakness but as notion to survival. They tell me that things will get better and that when it comes to your family you can’t give up. They are of course right.
This week my job has been crazy. My boss just told us today that she is leaving. It made me sad and as much as I want her to stay I know that she has the best intentions and at the end of the day you have to do what’s best for you and yours. Then my foot is almost healed but is taking it time. I am so ready to get back to running. My runner friends tell me that this is a sign that I was doing too much. Maybe they are right but man I miss the high.
I love my kid but there are times where I just want to scream like almost every dinner time. She won’t eat or won’t eat what we fix her. My wife is a lot nicer then I am cause I have one rule in my kitchen and that is you eat what make or your font eat at all. I found out real fast that that rule only applies if you are five and younger.
I am hoping that now since we are at “hump day” then things will start to get better. I have a great weekend planned and another summer adventure to blog about as well as other things.
It amazes me how when you start a new blog entry you are throwing a pity party for yourself but then at the end you are as optimistic as possible.
Got to love the power of the blog!
