WINE STAT!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so fucking tired. Didn’t we just do this yesterday?

Some days it feels like Groundhog Day! Sadly, I don’t do all the above alone (thank you helpful husband/dad)! Most of you probably don’t either. So, why does it feel like SO MUCH? Is it the repetition? Is it the lack of free time? Time to just have a thought and not feel like if you stop for 2 seconds you’re going to get behind and then regret taking that 2 second time out with an unhealthy injection of “shoulds”?

I’m trying a few things to change this “feeling” so much like Groundhog Day. I’m getting creative! I realized I don’t ask for help enough. I need to ask the kids to participate in the lunch making. Ask the oldest to start helping with the laundry. She already does dishwasher duty and trash/recyling duty, so that’s a bonus. Change it up. Utilize the crock pot. Institute a date night. Only pick up dry cleaning and toilet paper on the weekends. Eat out. Take a quick walk or bike ride after dinner. Hire a tutor. Move out. (eee eee eee eeeeee) Put a groundhog in their bed. You know, shake things up a little.

What about you? You have Groundhog Days? What do you do to get creative?

Stay sane, my friends.
