Mommy Needs a Timeout

I know there are many readers that live where you have snow days. And you hate me in the winter just a little since it's so nice here in the winter. You can stop hating me now. Summer is in full swing and it came hotter and earlier this year. The kids are going crazy being stuck inside and did I mention that there is no more preschool? This also means that mommy is going crazy.

Funny Cry For Help Ecard: I'm saving up for a nervous breakdown.

After a long HOT weekend (108 on Friday) we are going a little stir crazy. The kids are slamming doors, fighting, whining oh the whining, skipping naps, and really testing my unconditional love for them. Add in that I'm dealing with family drama, a guest puppy, and Mark getting tested for TWO different conditions, I'm a big ball of stress.

So this mommy needs a timeout. I pushed my hair appointment back a few hours so I could get some alone time. But I'm not sure if it will be enough, I may need to run away from home for a few days.

Funny Family Ecard: I have twins, therefore I drink twice as much.

Although I think there is a flaw in my plan since Brett says he's coming with me. Who will watch the kids?

This too shall pass.



  1. Aww! We all need a break every now and then. It is hot here too and I've had to find things to do with my kids. We go to the local library since they have stuff to do and computers to play with while we are there, and then there's free bowling and dollar movie days. May not be too exciting but it gets the kids out of the house.

  2. I'm starting to feel the same way about the weather. I love it any other part of the year but we're only creeping into the 90s and I'm already avoiding taking my girls out in it. The triple digits will be here soon and we'll be sticking to early morning or inside activities. Hang in there!

  3. Oh I am totally stealing the twin "e" card : ) Love that! And I totally feel you. We are just now getting super hot around here in Houston, and we have months ahead of us where it will cool down. I just know this is going to be the hottest summer. It doesn't help when the kids want to go "owside" during the hottest part of the day & freak when I won't let them. I finally had a mental breakdown last week and cried to my husband that I needed a break - not one of those 2 hour breaks where I run errands at super sonic speed so I can get back home, but a REAL BREAK. Like overnight away from EVERYONe : ) Don't see it happening anytime soon but it's nice to dream. Until then, lots of AC and drive thru trips to Chick Fil A just to get out of the house.

  4. Yes, this to shall pass and SOMETHING else will pop up...LOL!

    :) Stay cool!

  5. I just made that twin postcard my cover pic on faceboook...hahahahaha....thanks!

  6. Hang in there. I remember those days well. They were hard. Now that my boys are teens and out of the house a lot, it's sooooo quiet here some days that I actually miss the chaos.

  7. Oh man that's a lot to deal with at one time!!!! Hopefully the time away will be enough to refresh you. Hang in there, yes, this too shall pass, but it's hard to see that right now.
